    I can't log in. I start UO (I don't use any third-party programs like UO Assist or anything), and it looks like it's patching, but when I click 'Play', I get that annoying "boing" noise and an error message in a separate window saying "Patch Failure. The program failed to launch the game executable." Has anyone experienced this before? I logged in this morning an it was fine.

    I must note, however, that since logging in earlier today, that I did a system restore, as I was having some serious lag spike issues every 30 seconds or so. The restore went fine, and my virus protection and malware protection both did updates, as did Windows. My internet in general appears to be fine, so I'm guessing that it's a problem specific to UO.

    I run the classic client in case it matters.

    Please help! I have a normal Monday through Friday work week so the weekend is when I try to cram in most of my UO time!

    Did you try checking the "Perform Full File Check" box at the bottom of the sign-in screen? I don't know if that will help, but I'd try.
