New Launcher Location?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so after some few months not playing, i played again missing lots of info.

So, when i try to open the steam downloaded files of warframe, i go to D:\Steam\Steamapps\Common\Warframe\Tools\Launcher.exe

And this launcher re-downloads the whole game!

But if i run it from steam library it launches normally, no 3GBs download or anything.


Someone told me steam made a new launcher location, where is it?

C:\Users\<windows account name>\AppData\Local\Warframe\Downloaded\Public\Tools\Launcher.exe


On a PC that doesn't have it installed, if you run the Launcher, it will prompt you for an installation directory; when it does, just point it to the Warframe folder with all of the data (approx 4 GB) and it should verify the game cache and be fine.


I can instruct you on how to transfer the game between computers... but ONLY if it's the standalone files. The way Steam installs Warframe and handles its files is finicky.
