Overwolf Installation Troubleshooting

I got “Server Connection Error” while installing Overwolf, what can cause this?

  • An anti-virus\firewall that might block the communication with the Overwolf servers.
    Make sure to white-list Overwolf.
  • Overwolf server malfunction or downtime.
       Please try again after a while, just to make sure it’s not a temporary issue.
  • Weak/Unstable Wi-Fi connection that disconnects every now and then.
       Connect your internet via cable or make sure your Wi-Fi connection is stable.
If all of the above does not work, and you are still unable to install Overwolf, then let’s try doing a full clean sweep of all Overwolf files, then try to re-install it.
To uninstall Overwolf just go to: Start -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a Program and uninstall Overwolf.
Once you finish uninstalling, head to C:\Program Files (x86) and check to see if you have an Overwolf folder (you shouldn’t). Delete it, and proceed to do the following:

Windows 10

  1. Press the Windows key+R
  2. Type: %localappdata%
  3. Press enter.
  4. Look for a folder named ‘Overwolf’
  5. Delete it.
Windows 7/8
  1. Click the Windows “Start” button.
  2. In the search bar, type: %localappdata%
  3. Press enter.
  4. Find the ‘Overwolf’ folder.
  5. Delete it.

Once you finish, please re-download (and choose your favorite app) and launch Overwolf.
