Did you drag the installer out of the folder it came in? ClassicUO should have everything it's need to run, you can't move the exe from the folder or the components would be missing for it to run.
 
Nah, I left all the files in the same folder. Dunno what the issue is. Could've swore that I had to redirect UO classic to EAgames folder, but I can't remember how I did that on my laptop

its not referring to the EAGames folder, its talking about missing Cimgui.dll your ClassicUO Folder should look like this 1617740320831.png

Get rid of that installation and redownload a fresh copy of it and extract it to its own folder and then try running it as admin, perhaps they might of updated a bad copy and you just happened to download that one.

I've already tried redownloading 10 times now before you even mentioned that :confused:
alright well the last attempt i can give, is to upload the folder you are missing and see if that could do anything for you, ill keep the file up for a few just incase https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EVsrRlNvSngAnv68HoBuvEf7JOlPvduX/view?usp=sharing if all else fails, most likely you are missing a certain frame network, so i would compare what you had on your old laptop and download the software that is associated witjh it.
 
So I just downloaded it and got a new error. :) We're making progress!

I've got .NET Framework 4.8. I guess it will just have to remain a mystery

so now just download the client and don't change the directory it goes in let it go in the predestined folder EA chooses
 
Its not giving me the option to redirect to EAGames folder. I must be braindead. Is EAGames folder not my directory?

no EAGames that is in your documents is not the correct one it should be under something like this C:\Games\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Classic

The folder you are referring to just stores your Client Options not the actual client.

Im not understanding what you are trying to to launch. You want to run ClassicUO but are showing an EA folder. For ClassicUO all you need is the ClassicUO folder. In it are a couple dozen files and a folder or two. EA has nothing to do with it. Its really as easy as drag the ClassicUO do a drive. Open the folder, set the settings.json IP and run the launcher.
 
It's okay, thanks for trying

I honestly think you are just missing the framework that Classic UO is built on. Either that or your computer is not a x64 and is having problems due to that reason.
