Once you have determined whether the GameStop PC App is running or not:
There are a number of things that could cause this issue. Here are some solutions:
Below is a list of applications that can cause issues with the GameStop PC Downloads gaming experience.
Any Anti-Virus program runs the risk of blocking the GameStop App and game access, especially when not properly configured for use with the GameStop App. Please make sure that the GameStop App and all GameStop PC Downloads games are listed as exceptions in these programs.
Applications noted with an * have a history of being especially problematic for the GameStop App.
All games are scanned for viruses, spyware and trojans before they are released on the GameStop PC Downloads platform. If your anti-virus or security application is flagging a game file as suspicious, it is likely a false-positive. As an extra precaution, do an additional virus scan of your system to ensure no other problems exist. If no other issues are found, consider adding the flagged game file to your anti-virus or security program’s whitelist/exceptions list. If you do not know how to do this, you will need to consult the documentation for your particular antivirus software or contact their support to assist you with this.
In most cases this will be either your firewall and/or antivirus software blocking the GameStop PC App traffic. You should only need to add the PC App to your list of trusted applications for both your antivirus and firewall.
If you are still having issue connecting/downloading through the PC App, try connecting directly to your internet modem and bypassing your router if you have one. If you are still having issues, you might want to consider speaking with your internet service provider (ISP) to ensure that they are not blocking part or all of the PC App’s traffic. This is most common with University/College campus networks.
In some rare cases it might be a configuration issue with your router/modem. In this case, if it is equipment issued by your internet service provider, you will want to call their support department and see if they can walk you through changing the configuration to allow the PC App to properly access your connection.
