Excited purchasers of TrackMania have hit an unfortunate snag when trying to launch the game. For many, it is impossible to launch the game directly from Epic Games. You can see a short video that covers what this bug looks like. While annoying, the good news is there are a few workarounds that will get you playing in short order. Sit back and read our TrackMania Not Launching Epic Games Guide for answers.
The simplest fix so far seems to be installing Uplay. A number of players have found that installing Uplay and ensuring it is fully updated will ensure TrackMania launches from Epic Games. That last part is vital, as the failure to fully update Uplay might make this fix ineffective. Once you have installed and updated Uplay, you need only to return to Epic Games to successfully launch TrackMania.
Use the Exe
Another option is to skip Epic Games entirely. Simply navigate to the folder that holds track mania. Double click on the EXE file and the game will launch. If you are reliant on Epic Games this method might be annoying, but it is certainly better than not playing at all!
Launch Administrator Mode
Reddit commenters also claim that launching TrackMania from Epic Games is no problem in administrator mode. Just launch Epic Games in administrator mode and TrackMania should launch like normal. Please note I have not tested this method personally, but have found multiple reports that it works. If the other methods did not work fo you, give this one a try.
