2 Ways To Run WGT Golf
Fire up the game through the launcher as normal, but before pressing 'Play', right click on the launcher's taskbar icon and select 'Pin to taskbar'.
Go back to the launcher and press 'Play'. When the game has loaded, right click on the game's taskbar icon and select 'Pin to taskbar'.
Now you have two icons. One launches the game through the launcher and does updates, the other launches the game without the launcher and does not do updates.
If WGT releases an update that causes the launcher to fail in some way, you can still launch the game using the other icon. 😎
