We have decided to remove Overwolf support for Windows Insider versions due to technical issues. This means that Overwolf's overlay will not work on systems running Windows Insider OS since the 14th of February 2021.
To check if you're running a Windows Insider version or not, please open your system's settings, type in 'Windows Insider' and click on the search result:
This should take you to the Insider Program settings where you will see this screen if you are not in the program:
Or this screen if you are in the program:
We strongly advise against using the override to access apps specifically for Call of Duty: Warzone, and cannot guarantee the safety of your game account if you decide to go forth and apply it.
If you are absolutely certain you wish to use Overwolf with Windows Insider, you can use the following override steps that will allow you to run Overwolf and all of its features:
- Close Overwolf (if running)
- Open the following directory: C:\ProgramData\Overwolf\Setup (%ProgramData%\Overwolf\Setup)
If you cannot locate the ProgramData folder, please make sure to enable the View hidden files and folders option (in Windows 11, click the 3 dots at the top menu and select 'Options'):
- Locate the file called 'SetupInfo.ini'
- Right click the file and choose 'Edit'
- Under '[General]' start a new line and type in
AllowInsider=True, so the result would look like this:
- Restart Overwolf
If you're having trouble editing or saving the file, please try the following:
- Run Notepad as an administrator:
Open the file from in it (File > Open... > C:\ProgramData\Overwolf\Setup, make sure to set the file type to 'All Files'):
- Add Write/Modify permissions to your Windows user for the C:\ProgramData\Overwolf\Setup folder (right click the folder > Properties > Security > Edit > check 'Modify' and 'Write' > Apply > OK):
