Due to a failure of launch procedures, we had an unplanned release of the 2020.17 version of the launcher last evening. This uncontrolled release unsurprisingly brought with it some bugs, and we will be reverting the changes for the time being in order to give us time to address the remaining bugs evident in 2020.17.

The reversion is now done and we are back on 2020.16. The current plan is to fix the stuff that was broken and re-release it as 2020.17.2.

How to fix your launcher
If you have a broken launcher that won't update, the easiest thing is to uninstall the Paradox launcher and then start your game anew. A launcher version will be installed and subsequently updated to the re-released 2020.16.

An alternative way to try this is to update your VC++ Redistributable (as described below), get it working and then have the launcher revert back to 2020.16.

Apologies for anyone affected by the bugs and the confusion that will no doubt ensue as a result of the reversion of 2020.17.

When will Paradox customers stop being its QA team?
You're not our QA team, you're our Customer Experience Team, that's much more important ;)! In all seriousness though the release was accidental and it wasn't ready for deployment, that's why it caused "a few" issues ><.

Only not for the game i had started messing around, trying some other offical solutions (as advised by moderators on Steam) and now for that specific game I'm missing launcher-settings.json.
Any idea where i get that file from?

The launcher-settings.json is the file delivered by the game team to regulate how the launcher operates. It should be present in your game directory and will be picked up by the bootstrap process and ensure that the launcher gets correct skinning etc. If it's lost, validating the game files should make Steam re-create it (provided you actually run Steam - if you are on Microsoft, GOG, Epic or elsewhere your mileage may vary)
