[RESOLVED]

Hi, so I have this not-so-uncommon error when

1) the launcher will start and check for updates correctly
2) after clicking the Play button the launcher gets closed, the PVP client does not launch although the LolLauncher.exe process is visible in the task manager

It did not start after a new patch, I could play normally until yesterday
What does not help:
a) retrying
b) Restarting the machine
c) reinstalling Air
d) updating stuff

Here's some logs:

Any hints what else can be done?
Reinstalling is hardly an option due to download limits, it's the last resort really and I would like to avoid it if at possible. Especially that to most people with this issue, whose posts I was able to find, it did not prove helpful.

Hey Sotar,
I'm pretty sure reinstalling would fix this issue.
Make sure you install everything in one directory and
when running game first after instalation
run as administrator.

I think before reinstall you can try to repair luncher (right top corner). Oh and you can try to uninstall Pando Media Booster

Hey guys, thanks a lot for the time taken to reply to my post. Appreciated.
I am happy to report the issue was fixed by launching the "repair" procedure and letting it complete this time (I might have aborted it before).

I had the same problem, but I fixed mine! I went to- computer- Local Disk- Riot Games - League Of legends - RADS - Projects - Lol_air_Client - releases - and deleted the highest number - start LoL again!
It went well, because my LoL didnt start after pushing ' Play ' before I saw someones post! Gl & Hf Summoners !
