Just moved it to another drive and folder and still nothing happens. I click on the game file in my library on GOG and the download will no longer start. Even trying to download games without the downloader will now give errors.

When I click the exe file to install it says files are missing despite me making sure to download all parts of the game files I need. Thus I can no longer install games I purchase. I don't understand why things have now stopped working.

Anyone have a clue ?

Did you contact GOG support? If not, that'd be a good next step.
Had already done so. No solution. So had to try other things.

demonix00: I don't know why the current version is called the stable release as it most certainly isn't since the first attempt to download one game using it caused my laptop to go haywire and for the downloader to stop responding requiring a forced shutdown of it, and when I started it back up the game that was downloading had vanished from the list and quite frankly the downloader has now been removed from my computer as I'm most likely to be able to download a lot faster downloading it through the web browser (the downloader was only maxed out at around 3MB/s when it should have gotten to the 8MB/s mark).
You may experience a problem with the software but that doesn't mean that because it has a bug it is not the stable release. If one was to hold all software to the same logic then every video game ever made and the majority of all software made would be sold as a never ending "beta" release because all but perhaps the most simplest of all software has bugs in it. "stable" as used as a label for a software release does not mean "completely bug free" nor "nobody will ever nor could ever experience any problem whatsoever while using this" for what it's worth.

I'm just saying.
Don't want to start a new thread just for this, and was directed here from another post (very old one now) for the same problem I'm having. I assume it's just the release of Pillars of Eternity and GOG servers are bogged down, but the download speed is fluctuating wildly while my speed is staying consistent. It'll go all the way up to 7MB/s, around where my DL speed sits, then work its way down to a paltry 600Kb/s. I understand if their servers are just bogged down, but it does tend to grind your gears a bit when a download that should take 10 minutes winds up taking over an hour.

I assume other people are having the same issue...? I'm asking here because I don't necessarily know that it's a bug or error per se, and wouldn't want to send an erroneous error report and waste somebody's time if it's just a known bandwidth issue they plan to work on.
