Default Game locks up during loading

Beginning in MidOctober 2009 my LOL game started locking up about 1/3 of the way thru loading. It then proceeds to lock up the computer. I think the change may be caused by a Microsoft update to the .Net system. Does anyone else have this problem or is there a workaround? I really miss having my little 15 minute games during the day.

Yeah, I'm feeling it to. I just reinstalled this after a format, hadn't updated the .net thing in forever, then after it wouldn't load. I thought it was because my graphics and memory had changed, but if you guys are having the same problem...

I have the same problem. Did you find a workaround? What Windows and service pack are you guys using? I have WinXP SP3 on my desktop computer. The game works fine on my laptop with WinXP SP2, so it could be the SP that causes the problem?

I had my brother to try the game on his and dad's computer. The game worked fine on his machine with winxp sp3, but on dad's win7 the game didn't work (even in compatibility mode). My brother's machine has vanilla sp3. That is, he doesn't have automatic updates turned on, and he didn't install any windows updates or hotfixes after he installed the sp3. I, on the other hand, have sp3 with hundreds of additional windows updates and hotfixes.

I tried to uninstall every version of .net framework, and then install the basic v1.1, but it didn't help. I don't feel like uninstalling sp3 to check that out, though.

check this forum for game info

Maybe a virtual pc or a virtualbox can help resolve this for you. I know it is extra effort but the game is worth it.

Lightbulb Re: Game locks up during loading

Maybe it is asking much...

Could the company fund a few hours of developer testing to find out what keeps the game from working with Win XP.

Or better said: What must be done to make it work.
It would be a pity if such a wonderful game has to go under a cover of dust, because it just does not work any more.
