    I am trying to download the game but when the "Dat Files" are about to finish downloading, it says that the progress has failed and "HTTP 403 – Forbidden". WHat do you think the problem is and how exactly should I fix it?

    Hello, Hurin. I downloaded LOTRO from official website. My computer stuttered and buzzed like this client has a virus, I am sure. Do you think it will be OK to install LOTRO through Steam?

    Thank you for this video and posts on the forum. I would definitely need it if I did not play few other older games, so my clean Windows 10 install had all C++ etc things before installing any games. Sleep settings was the first thing I turned off after installing OS, it broke my tasks too many times. Akami, sound option and Update check was news to me, will do that! Now I have problems with my resolution in various installers and programs… Wonder what will happen with my LOTRO game? Installer is tiny and displaced as for now… My TV is 4k HDR 49' and I sit like 3 steps afar from it on a sofa… Still downloading files with Launcher…

    Hey, so I'm currently re downloading the game due to error 201 which I'm sure is due to a corrupt file. Whenever I reinstall lotro it happens and I always end up having to reinstall the game twice (though I don't know if in the past I found a work around and forgot what it was exactly) Do you know why this happens, if it's a problem with the launcher itself or if there's any way to prevent that from happening? Or do you have to keep your fingers crossed hoping that the game will actually download correctly?

    I keep getting the update error: 'An update error occurred: The request could not be sent'. How do I fix this?

    You should do this via Steam which also streamlines a bunch of the tedious stuff and also gives you a faster client download and install.
