Star Wars The Old Republic can't start the install


When I try to install Star Wars The Old Republic I always get the error “RuntimeError(‘specified exe is not an archive or GOG setup file’)” Please help.

For SWTOR I would rather recommend getting the installer from Steam. (On there since 2021 I believe)

Thank you for the reply, but I also tried Steam, which gives me an (invalid platform) error.

I’m having the same issue. I used to be able to install the game normally, however after buying a new PC I’m unable to install the game anymore.

If anyone has a solution, I’d be grateful.

I changed running SWTOR (and a few others) through Steam a while back and haven’t turned back. Just add PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 %command% in the command options box. you can also add the Proton BattleEye Runtime and Proton EasyAntiCheat Runtime for other games like PLanetSide 2, etc. Just make sure you enable Steam Play for ALL TITLES.

You can look at the SWTOR ProtonDB listing at.
