Lord of the Rings: Online: Installing on Vista
I decided, at the prompting of a coworker, to try out Lord of the Rings: Online (LOTRO) to see how it faired to games like EQ2. So far, it’s pretty fun. As a minstrel, my little halfling sure shouts a lot (which is kinda annoying).
I did have a gotcha on installing. It never created a Start Menu or desktop shortcut. Even after rerunning setup “as administrator”.
So, for those wondering how to create a shortcut, run:
“%YOUR PROGRAMFILES DIR%\Turbine\The Lord of the Rings Online\TurbineLauncher.exe”
So, for me, it’s:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Turbine\The Lord of the Rings Online\TurbineLauncher.exe”
Beyond that, for some odd reason, it constantly wants to start up Media Center when I close the game. Odd.
