Had to fully re-install Win 10 after a game of WOT because I couldn't access the C: drive at all. I got stuck in an endless reboot loop with the error showing "can't find boot drive" after the game shut down. So does the launcher have to be installed in the C: drive if I install WOT on the D: drive? This is my first time using Windows 10 (geez I miss Win 7) and a dual drive (SATA 250 meg and 1 TB drives) so I am kinda clueless about this whole thing.

Not sure what you've run into. I have all my WG games located on drive E: and I've not had trouble with it. I've even have gone so far as to copy the games directory to different folders, gone into the files and redirected to the new folders, etc. Bottom line, installing WOT should not have caused your issue, not saying it didn't, just I don't see how it could have.

 

WG games don't really care where they are installed, I have even moved them to a thumb-drive and run from there. (Don't do it, it is soooo slow that way.)

What GWyatt said. These WoT folders can take a lot of rearrangements without issue.

Make sure the new Windows 10 install is completely completely updated.

WoT has run on my machines from Win7 to Win10; from year 1990 machines to year 2020 machines.

Quite a feat, really.

Uninstall WOT and then install everything to the external drive. Watch carefully to ensure that the external drive is being selected. This works for me.

Is the D drive external?  That can cause boot issues sometimes.

D: drive is internal. Both are 2.5 inch SSD drives. So yesterday I installed the "Game Center" on the C: drive and the game on the D: drive. Played a few battles and came back and everything was fine. Go figure. I'll report back here if I have any more problems. So far so good. Thanks for the suggestions! ;)

The forum is often a really great place to get answers to questions that are reasonably asked.    :)

Never... Ever.
If you can't log into the game then it's obvious ......
that you are so great wargaming has locked you out to protect their player base from the shame and Ridicule you will bring to them.. for their constant losing streaks..

By you not playing gives us a chance to improve...
 

We won't but we could so.....

Simply walk away my friend....
Just walk away.. never look back....

Type "Disk Management", and then press Enter. · Right-click the drive that had its letter modified, and then click Change drive letter and paths. paper.io 2
