well i can't post any details because nothing happens that is the problem i double click even run as administrator and poof nothing like it doesn't exist, the cursor buffers for 0.1sec then back to normal it doesn't open the client widow or anything just nothing..

about my machine it works great on my mobile, the problem is on my PC. which is a beast
Intel core I7 9700k
16GB RAM
Windows 10 x64
Asus prime z310
Nvidia RTX 2070
And i use the SSD hard disk for the client

That's a bit weird. I assume you've tried reinstalling the client entirely?
I seem to recall people with this problem in the past having some success by creating a new user account and installing/playing on that, as well as at least one person who ended up reinstalling Windows entirely, which also worked, but that's a fairly extreme solution. At the least, your specs suggest a built machine, so if you're the one that did so, it's an option to consider.

You might also try messing with the compatibility settings, but I'm not entirely confident that would work. Does the Event log have any useful detail as to any errors/warnings etc that might be relevant?

As a workaround, you can still (for now) get the throwback game working in a web browser, but that's sort of relying on outdated tech, so it's not the best way forward.

I did reinstalled it countless times always same result, i tried new accounts as well to no avail.
it is a built machine but i see no problem with any game i have played so far, why does it happen only with OSRS client since the RS3 one works just fine.

also, what does this mean? "compatibility settings" and where can i find "event log"

plus i checked multiple times the app administrator or something (the ctrl+alt+del thingy)
it doesn't show it even running in background it like it doesn't exist and trying to open it is pointless since even this thing doesn't register it

Event viewer is an MMC snap-in, but if you search in the start menu for "Event Viewer" you'll find it as well. Look into the "Application" and "System" logs under the "Windows Logs" tree, in the left sidebar.

Compatability settings you'll find if you alter the properties of the shortcut - you may find the shortcut the client has (on your desktop e.g.) is actually to a website - if that's the case, create another to wherever the client is actually isntalled. There'll be a compatibility tab with the various options.

A bit of googling suggests you may also get some joy if you temporarily disable your antivirus. Reddit has a multitude of other possible fixes, but you should look into those yourself, as I don't have much confidence in them.

Interesting the normal client works. As I don't play the throwback game, I don't know what the difference is between them. That might be a clue to someone more familiar with it than I am.
