Type of client used:
Operating System: Win10 Home, 32bit
Laptop/Desktop: desktop
Processor: Intel Core2 Duo, E6550
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 5450
RAM: 2gb

Tried running New Client, and after 18 minutes of a black screen, with the words Loading, please wait, in the upper left corner, I gave up.

Back to Java client, except it won't run, as it says it can't find it's parameter file, please reinstall.

I only have 175GB left on my hard drive, so at first the installer refused to reinstall, saying I don't have enough hard drive space. After a reboot, got past that screen, only to get a premature failure. Ran the msi (Runescape launcher 1.2.7) again, and selected repair. and all went well, until I tried to run the client.

and Unable to load the parameter file, please reinstall the program.

Congratulations Jagex. After Monday's update repeated game crashes, and now it won't even run.

Uninstall, and reinstalled three times. How many more tries are needed, before the MSI gets it correct?

To be fair, you are playing on a bit of a potato. Your tech is a good 10-12 years or so behind the times.
Have you considered a memory upgrade/expansion? Given your extremely limited memory resource, it would probably have a positive effect on the performance of your machine all-round.
Despite the 32bit OS.

My specs on the computer I am playing on currently.

CPU: AMD Turion 64X2 2Ghz
RAM: 3GB
GPU: Radeon X1270
Win 7 ULT ( 32 bit )

I use the JAVA client on this system with DirectX and with the exception of a few hiccups after the more recent update, the JAVA client on this system is rock solid. I can get around 25 FPS max low to mid settings. The only real performance issue I have is because of a hard drive issue and even that is small.

The original poster mentioned a problem with the parameter file not being created and this suggests to me an OS/permissions or programmatic issue of some sort. It did not have to be a system age or resource problem. I mean My Pentium 4 3Ghz HT system still runs the game with little issue.

See, Potatoes can run RS!
