I wonder if that new "repair" tab will help some players out with broken installations..
I can see that Turbine is at least trying!
On another note... Why would anyone want their DDO launcher to run on startup? What would the upside to that be?

A quick check on this and it does look pretty good so far. Some comments :
- I have the ability to leave the launcher open, which is great, but I still need to enter my password in for each new instance, even though all three of my accounts use the same login.
- The Launcher should really use a different task icon from the game itself. In fact, if there was a way to get different task icons for different instances... well... happiness would ensue.
- I would like to make yet another call for being able to save my password. I know some folks are concerned with the security, but, frankly, if some has gotten my laptop and broken into it, my DDO account is extremely low on my concerns list.
I can tell you that I currently utilize cygwin to let me one-click my login straight through character selection to game world. The process is all script-able (and still works.) So know my decision is between enduring the repeated password annoyance or the annoying cygwin instance boxes.
One last comment... minor bug. All of my accounts are showing up in the launcher as "Non-VIP" which is inaccurate.
I am stuck at work, but am curious as to how this works. Does the option page pop up when you launch DDO or do you have to go into a certain option file to make it work?
Characters on Sarlona: Ungnad (Morninglord, Wizard 17 / Favored Soul 2 / Fighter 1) -- Baerktghar (Dwarf, Paladin 18 / Fighter 2) -- Simulacruhm (Bladeforged, Artificer 16 / Paladin 3 / Wizard 1)

But I like the Cygwin command window boxes... When DDO hangs, I can CTRL-ALT-DEL --> Start the task manager and kill the cmd window, which instantly brings ddo down. That's often much faster than waiting for it to come around and shutdown on its own.
Having the option from the official launcher probably means that some of my friends who didnt get around to setting up cygwin will dual box, so its a good thing. but I'm very glad to hear cygwin is still an option.
Edit: Tested, and with the PyLOTRO launcher it's still the same stable, quick to load game on Linux. Of course, the launcher part of the patch does absolutely nothing here, but that shouldn't be surprising, but the PyLOTRO launcher happily patched everything else.
So... unless you care about certain graphics features, such as DX10/11 there is now no requirement to keep Windows just to play DDO.

I have ticked off the box for multiple game instances and yet I keep getting an error. Cannot get multiboxing enabled. Is there something else I might be missing.
Thank you for any help
You'll need to be more descriptive. What exactly do you do, and what exactly doesn't work? Error messages? What OS? etc.
OS= Win 7 64
Click launcher. Sign in with 1st account. Tab out. Click launcher. Sign in with 2nd account.
Game error - Connection failed: Can't bind local socket. Is another client running?
