  • I keep getting the error below. My game was working fine earlier now it wont even launch the launcher, i tried multiple things like turning off AV, excluding file in windows defender, and redownloading the launcher. It keeps saying a file wont download because its being used by another process or something like that.

  • @ddomado the file is locked for whatever reason.
    Delete C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Plutonium and try again. Also exclude that folder in your AV, not the launcher.

  • @Dss0 i have the same issue already did everything nothing works

  • Yes i already did everything even i deleted everything and downloaded it again and didnt worked

  • @Gorditochoa same please help me

  • "Being used by another process". See if you can find any pluto related tasks running in the background, end them. If you can't, just restart your PC that should fix it.
