GameRanger was primarily designed for Mac Operating System. Later, when it gains popularity, then it added for Windows OS.

This failure indicates to the invalid path selection. Be sure you select the right location of the executable file of the game.

You can check if the game is supported by it or not. Check the list of all supported games.

You have to be sure about the compatible OS version. Choose the exact location of the executable file in the target column under the game properties.

Describe Invalid Selection Game Ranger Failure


If you have that error on GameRanger saying you have an invalid selection, first, make sure the game you want to play is supported by GameRanger. To see the full list of games supported on GameRanger, visit Games on GameRanger. At the moment, they have like 725 games supported. You can see which games are supported on Windows only, on Mac, and cross-platform games.

If you see your game listed on GameRanger but you have this error, try reinstalling the game. Next, download and install the Latest GameRanger. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.x. Microsoft Windows 10 is not officially supported. Once it is installed, start GameRanger then create an account. Next, activate your account and then log in.

After that you can start a new game by hosting it or join an existing game. You can find and join an existing game by selecting a game room and clicking “Join Game”. But sometimes, there are games that don’t allow you to join if they have already started. You can check if the game has already started if there is a green dot next to it.

Alternatively, if you can’t join a game, just start and host your own game by clicking “Host Game”. If you still can’t play your game on GameRanger, in GameRanger, select the correct executable file of the game by navigating to its installation folder and selecting the correct EXE file. If this doesn’t work, here’s another workaround.

Download GameRanger-Not-Responding-Fix.7z and unpack it using 7-Zip. Once unpacked, look for the folder called “GameRanger-Not-Responding-Fix” and rename it to without quotes “GameRanger”. Next, make sure GameRanger is not running. Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to bring up the “Windows Task Manager” then go to “Processes” tab. Now, look for “GameRanger” on the list. If you see it, kill it.

Select “GameRanger” then click “End Process” and then select “End process” to confirm. After this, right-click the GameRanger folder you just renamed and select “Copy.” Next, navigate to one of the following locations whichever is available:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\[your-username]\Application Data\Roaming
  • C:\Users\[your-username]\AppData\Roaming

These folders are hidden by default. If you can’t see them, in Windows Explorer, click “Tools” then “Folder options.” Go to “View” tab then under “Hidden files and folders” section, select “Show hidden files, folders, and drives” then click “OK” all throughout. Now, press Ctrl + V to paste or begin copying the folder.

When you are prompted to overwrite files, click to select overwrite all. When you are finished, see if GameRanger runs without error.
