WT launcher is not detecting files

The launcher keeps saying it is not detecting settings.blk and other files so it is not starting up, even though all of these files exist. Anyone know what’s going on?

the launcher files themselve might be borked…

download and run the latest launcher / game installer from the warthunder.com website (download game). when the installer is running make sure the install / destination path is set to your current War Thunder game folder (as the default install path may be different) so the installer is overwriting the existing launcher files (and installing missing ones).
