I was simply playing enjoyable games for months and an error has occurred when I was starting it up. Ever since, I wasn't able to Unity Games because it had a "Launching Unity Error". And yes, I've tried uninstalling it/ trying new browsers/ and looking for more help using the web and so far it has led me no where. Please help!

1 try to do a build again.
2 try in an other browser(firefox ect.).
3 try update your unity webplayer plugin.
4 try update your video card.
5 try search it at google/whatever untill you give up.
6 try rightclick -> 'run as admin'.
8 try to bulid after the new settings.
9 try rightclick the Unity -> properties -> compatibility and set it to Windows XP(sp3).
10 try to bulid after the new settings.
if nothings works, try reinstall Unity. :-(
Thank you, but this is not a helpful answer, I would not be posting here if I didn't have tried some of the things that you mention. I have tried in several computer with 4 different video cards, two of them are Nvidia and the other two are ATI. The problem has popped up in 3 and it has niether popped up in Firefox nor in IE. A player should not have to run in admin mode at all and I already tried with a rebuilded project. :)
Same problem. Hope someone knows.
Very unhelpful AdamEstone. Google brought me here so I've been searching Google for days now. Never assume someone didn't try searching first...

If the webplayer fails to load (Windows XP and Pro).
Go to run type services.msc
Find Terminal Services and set it to Automatic, and then Click start services if it isn't started.
Not sure why it's turned off for some people, but there's probably a similar answer for other versions of Windows.
Hope this helps others.
