    Default LIVE Patcher not working

    I uninstalled RIFT Beta, and ironically as most are saying it did not uninstall, so after manually removing the RIFT folder I ran the new RIFT LIVE Launcher only to receive this error message right away.

    'Error Reading Setup Initialization File'

    After allowing windows to run the program i receive this message regardless of if I run it normal or as an administrator.

    Im trying to install this for Head Start on thurs and not having much luck. Anyone else out there experienced this, and more importantly has anyone fixed this?

    havent seen it.
    what i did for my uninstall though was

    uninstall rift beta (obviously they have uninstaller issues as i like many also had practically all files left over)
    manually removed the main rift folder and the one in the appdata folder (i.e the one with rift.cfg and stuff like that)
    then i ran ccleaner to make sure i got rid of all the other stuff that was rift related

    ran new launcher and everything installed fine. now if only they would fix whatever the problem is thats preventing ppl from downloading the game.
