If you’re experiencing issues running a downloaded game, try these troubleshooting tips:

  1. Disable your anti-virus and Windows Defender before downloading games. They may falsely detect crack files as threats and block them, preventing games from launching. To avoid re-downloading, restore quarantined files from your anti-virus vault. For simplicity, consider adding game folders to your anti-virus exclusions.

  2. Check for Redist folders and install any required runtimes such as DirectX, Visual C++, .NET Framework, etc. This resolves most missing DLL errors.

  3. Run games as Administrator to fix “game not saving” errors. Right-click the game executable and select “Run as Administrator.”

Note: If you encounter “Hotlink protection” errors, they occur when you copy-paste download links instead of downloading directly from our site. Additionally, please be aware that the Brave browser is currently unable to download our files.

JDownloader users: Copy the actual download URL from your browser’s Ctrl+J dialog instead of the uploadhaven link. Paste this direct download link into JDownloader. This workaround avoids hotlink protection issues.
