You need the patch to install ITF.

 

What problem where you facing exactly ? Any error messages ? What's your OS ?

I happen to have the same problem, but my message to update my launcher shows up over and over again. So what I do is update the launcher, then I open the launcher again and it says, would you like to update? It is REALLY frustrating I and if you could answer this in the simplest way possible, that would be amazing, 

 

Thanks!
