Windows launcher (11)
Due to the risks of patching large files and getting a threading error (a Unity issue which still occasionally pops up) we decided that we bundle The Master’s Toolkit, Launcher and the Essentials pack into one Installer. This seemed to also resolve a lot of confusion about how to install different components/order of components to users, and we reduced support requests on this topic close to zero. We understand that it is a fairly large download comparing to a single launcher, but being compressed and worked into one installer file, it is a lot faster process than letting the launcher download and install software/pack separately.
Minimum requirements :

If you have purchased the product and downloaded the installer but havent installed for about a month or so, we suggest re-downloading the installer, because as we update the software, we also updtate the installer, so you dont end up waiting a long time downloading small patches. To download the installer again, head to : https://arkenforge.com/my-account/downloads/.
Step 3 : Doubleclick on the downlaoded file to start the installation process :
Step 4: Walk through the steps of installation
Step 5: Search for Arkenforge on your start menu with Cortana, right click it, and run as administrator
In the future you can avoid clicking running in administrator mode every time by doing this : https://arkenforge.com/ufaqs/how-do-i-run-the-launcher-as-admin-windows/
Depending on your instalaltion folder’s permission, you might have to run the launcher in administrator mode every time it needs to patch.
