READ THIS BEFORE YOU INSTALL

Administrator Rights Required for Patcher

The Patcher must be run by an Administrator or it will crash. After downloading and installing the Patcher, navigate to the folder you installed the Patcher in (by default this is \Program Files (x86)\Pathfinder Online). If you had the installer add a start menu entry or a desktop icon you may also right-click on either of those instead of navigating to the install directory. Right click on the Patcher application (or the Pathfinder Online icon) (not the Pathfinder Online application) and select "Run as administrator". If you don't see this option on the menu, you are not an Administrator and will need to have a user who is install the program for you.

This graphic shows you what you should see when running the Patcher for the first time.

Sitting at connecting to server. No indication that it is patching from 7.1 to 8.1

Did you download and install the new 8.1 client? The 7.1 client will not self-patch.


I installed it on 2 computers and didn't run as an admin on either. Not sure why it worked on mine. Windows 7 Home on both computers.

It depends entirely on your Windows settings and where you choose to install the game. Default install location should be 'program files' and default Windows settings makes that directory protected such that if you wish to write to that directory you need admin privileges. If you choose to install to a different directory you would probably not run into this issue.

If your likely to want to run any game from more than one windows login, installing in a different directory ouside program files is also a good idea.
