Launcher logs

The log file will record everything the launcher does and if it encounters an issue, it will record the error. These files are created automatically by the launcher and can be very helpful in troubleshooting potential problems with the launcher. 

If you are encountering issues with the launcher and require assistance from Player Experience, then please attach the most recent launcher log files to your support ticket.
