I was logged into UO... my cat stepped on the power button and hard-shut-down my computer. When I turned it back on, Windows 8 did an update. I booted back up, started UO, and the patcher ran fine. I clicked Play. (EC). The window expanded like it usually does, but instead of loading the login screen, it stayed black, then minimized itself, then vanished. It did not show up in the taskbar or in task manager. I tried a patcher full file check. It came out OK but didn't help. I tried manually running both the patcher and UOSA.exe as administrator. Same problem. I uninstalled UO, reinstalled it, re-patched... same problem. I rolled back Windows to a restore point 2 weeks prior... same problem. I manually ran Windows Update repeatedly until it successfully installed all updates with no more left. EC still won't load. It's like when the patcher hands off to uosa.exe, that's where it fails. Any ideas?
