DISCORD updating trouble? > DISCORD Clean install

Postby cyberbofh » Wed Aug 09, 2017 11:57 pm

Greetings CMDRs

DISCORD did some big updates but.. some of you might encounter some problems..
Gettings weird messages or even getting stuck at all, unable to use DISCORD at all

The fix for this is a clean install of DISCORD
(takes about 2 min, including drinking some coffee while doing it :D )

DISCORD Clean install

  1. uninstall Discord

  2. clean config
    https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/209099387--Windows-Installer-Errors

  3. download DISCORD:
    https://discordapp.com/download

  4. install Discord

  5. log back in and have fun :D

You know, I had some performance issues on elite last night. Just small things like something was hogging resource.
It did occur to me that it might be Discord as I noticed it updating.
I'll try running without it tonight for a bit and see if I'm right.

If something was hogging resources a whole night I doubt it was the DISCORD update, since it only needed 15..20 sec for me
Maybe you were downloading too many "naughty" Thargoid pictures while gaming.. :D

Everyone has a vice and all Thargoids are female after all.... ;)


I worded it badly but what I meant was maybe the updated Discord was causing issues. Probably wasn't but that's the only thing that had changed.
