I had an issue where I tried to launch the NXT client and it just gave me a blank error message (probably a corrupted cache) Anyway, I deleted the whole thing and tried re-downloading it and now it only downloads some kind of "internet link" (.url). Double clicking the icon on my desktop does literally nothing. Java client works just fine.

Not sure how you're only getting an internet link. You can try copy and pasting the following in to your web browser's address bar:

Hey
Urnukka
,

If you are looking for the .exe file or the application file follow my steps below.

1. Go to the following file path:
C:\Program Files\Jagex\RuneScape Launcher


2. You will see a few icons in there, look for the RuneScape.exe file and then Copy+Paste it onto your desktop.

If it doesn't work please try the additional step.

3. Right click it and then click "Properties", go into "Compatibility" and then check the compatibility mode and try "Windows 8" or "Windows 7" also ticking "Run as Administrator"

Hope this helps :).

L0NE DRUID, I did what you told me to and now it is a .exe file. Still, nothing happens when I try to launch it even though I check the "run as adminstrator" box and tried both windows 7 and 8 compatibility modes.

Urnukka, if you're downloading the client, installing it, and getting a shortcut on the desktop that points to rs-launch://www.runescape.com/k=5/l=$(Language:0)/jav_config.ws
then that is normal.

Pinguicula, double clicking that thing does nothing. It appears on desktop but nothing happens when I try opening it. I can't get the launcher to respond in any way

Hey
Urnukka
,

Starting to think that there is something blocking the NXT client from working because the client not responding can have something to do with an anti-virus blocking it, what anti-virus do you have and can you try pausing it to see if the client launches then?

Something else I would say is sometimes third-party software can cause this type of stuff too so can you please try making a new user profile?
