Cursed•2mo ago
Let's try doing a clean reinstall of the game, which a more advance reinstall. Please follow every step carefully and in the correct order. ■ Let's clean up the files from the game, and uninstall it: • Go to your C:\Riot Games folder and delete the Riot Client folder. • Then enter %localappdata% into the top bar of Windows Explorer and delete the Riot Games folder • Next, paste %programdata%. Once again, delete the Riot Games folder from there, then empty the Recycle Bin. • Install Revo Uninstaller and completely remove Riot Vanguard and VALORANT from your PC. • Also make sure that you don't have an installation of VALORANT on other HDD drives. • Get CCleaner and clean all the registries and corrupted files from your computer. ■ It is of paramount importance that at this point, you do a clean boot of your PC. This will prevent other apps from interfering with the installation. ■ Then you'll need to re-download the game from here. • Make sure to install it in the default location on the C:\ drive (we recommend having at least 45 GB of free space before the installation). • Also, make sure to run the installer with Administrator permissions. • You will need to restart your PC when prompted to finish reinstalling Riot Vanguard. And you can go back to the clean boot article and do the steps to reset the computer to start normally. • Before you launch the game for the first time, disable your antivirus and follow this guide on configuring firewalls. These are the filepaths you need to add: C:\Riot Games\VALORANT\live\VALORANT.exe C:\Riot Games\VALORANT\live\ShooterGame\Binaries\Win64\VALORANT-Win64-Shipping C:\Riot Games\VALORANT\live\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UnrealCEFSubProcess.exe C:\Program Files\Riot Vanguard\vgc.exe C:\Riot Games\Riot Client\RiotClientServices.exe After you have finished, try launching Valorant and please let me know if you are still getting any errors.

Yes, but the reason it fixed it for you is because you reinstalled windows Not because it actually worked
