Heros of Newerth Patch Update Error (K2 Exception)

Yesterday, 1st of April 2010, Heros of Newerth had open the registration for Beta that doesn’t require a Beta Key. I also opened an account on for Heros of Newerth www.heroesofnewerth.com.


I installed version 0.1.64b (older version) and it will automatic update after you login. What actually happen is after it download the update files, the update process crash. It only show a small window saying K2 Exception, Would you like to save a crash report?

After go through some forum, I found a method to solve the problem. All you have to do is download the tos.txt file at the end of this post, and paste it into the installation folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Heroes of Newerth  (default installation folder for 64 bit window)

C:\Program Files\Heroes of Newerth (default installation folder for 32 bit window)

and run the update again. I have tried this method for Window XP and Window 7 (64bit) and it solve the problem. So, you might want to have a try.



If you have better solution, or recommendation for this method please leave a comment. Enjoy!

Hello guys, Im still getting the text k2 Exception, Would you like to save the crash report?. PLEASE help me.


Henke, can you give more detail about your system, like the operating system, service pack, and which version of HON you are installing. And for your information, HON doesn’t seems to work under Window XP Service Pack 2, you will need to upgrage to Service Pack 3.


Well i got a Windows Xp, just redownloaded the game so i guess i got the newest version of HoN, but still getting the anoying k2 exception. Please Hit me up. Thanks.


Since its Window XP, you will need to check your Service Pack. If it is Service Pack 2, then try to upgrade it to Service Pack 3. There is no guarantee that it will works under Service Pack 3, but the upgrade do solve the problem on some PC. And make sure you run HON as administrator.
