How to Fix Honkai Star Rail Game Files Verification on PC

If you have downloaded the game on the PC and are getting the “Game files verification error. Select “Retry” to try again.”, the first thing you should do here is to click on the “Retry” option. And if the problem is still persisting, the next step is to try and restart the game. After that, try to uninstall the game, and then reinstall it. The problem could also be because your HSR launcher does not have admin privileges. Navigate to where you have installed the game and find the .exe game file. Right-click on it and go to the Compatibility tab. Turn on the “Run this program as an administrator” option.

Another option to try is to temporarily disable your antivirus and firewall programs, as they can often interfere with a game running properly. Finally, the problem could be down to you having trouble with a connection to the server in your region. In that case, you can try using a VPN to re-download the game using another region. We know that this will likely use up a lot of bandwidth, so we recommend that you use a free VPN to do this.
