This post highlights a few potential solutions to Roblox error code 524 and 264 in Windows 10 and Windows 11 OS. Read on to learn what triggers Roblox errors and how to fix them.
Numerous errors have already been noted ever since Roblox was first released. Aside from general in-game issues such as random crashes, lags, and launching errors, Roblox error codes have also been reported. Each of these error codes has a corresponding description.
Tackled in this quick walkthrough are Roblox error code 524 and 264. If you happen to bump into these error codes while playing Roblox on your Windows 10 or Windows 11 computer, you can try the potential solutions I outlined in this post.
What causes Roblox error code 524 and 264?
The error code 524 in Roblox denotes an authorization error. Thus, in the error prompt you’ll see a message saying that you are “not authorized to join this game” with the error code beneath it.
Many of those who encountered this error were attempting to join an ongoing multiplayer game.
Identified as the possible causes are ongoing issues with the Roblox server, network connectivity issue on the user’s end, disabled VIP server invitations, banned account and corrupted registry keys, to name some.
Roblox error 264 on the other hand denotes that you are attempting to access or launch a Roblox game from the same account across various devices. This means that you might have logged into one device and tried to login to another using the same account credentials.
Troubleshooting Roblox error code 524 and 264 in Windows 10/11
Performing the following tweaks will help eliminate individual factors that are known to trigger the same Roblox errors on a Windows computer. Don’t forget to test-run the game after performing each solution to determine whether or not the error is fixed.
Before you start troubleshooting, verify the current status of Roblox servers. You can use any down detector tools or visit Roblox status page or Twitter account.
On the status page, you will see which server in Roblox is experiencing some issues and currently unavailable.
If it shows that all systems are operational, then you just confirmed that the Roblox server is not to blame. At this point, you may begin ruling out other factors and potential triggers.
First solution: Log out of your Roblox account on other devices.
If you’re currently signed into one same account on multiple devices, then that’s more likely the main reason why you’re getting an error code 264 when trying to launch a Roblox game on your computer. To clear this out, log out of Roblox from your other devices except on your computer.
If you’ve let someone like a friend who’s using your login credentials for Roblox, then you will need to have that person logged out from his/her device. In short, there should only be one device that’s using your account credentials to avoid conflicts.
- To log out of your Roblox account in Windows 10/11, just navigate to the Roblox home page. Once you’re there, tap on the Settings icon from the upper-right side of the screen then select Logout from the dropdown menu.
- To log out of Roblox on mobile devices, just launch the Roblox app then tap the triple-dot icon at the bottom-right side of the app screen. Doing so will launch the main menu of the Roblox game. Once you’re in that menu, scroll down to the bottom section of the page and then tap the Logout button.
After logging out of Roblox on your other devices, retry logging into Roblox on your Windows computer, access your preferred game and see if the error code 264 is still showing.
Second solution: Clear Roblox cache files.
Temporary files that are accumulated in the Roblox game as cache can also trigger some errors, especially when any of these files become corrupted. To rule this out, follow these steps to clear cache files from Roblox on Windows 10/11:
- Open the Run app then type %temp%\Roblox in the search field and press Enter or OK. Doing so opens a new window with a list of all temporary files and data for Roblox.
- Select or highlight all files and then press the Shift+Delete keys together.
That should delete all the files accumulated in the Roblox cache folder permanently.
After clearing Roblox cache, retry logging into your Roblox account and see if the error is gone.
Third solution: Allow Invitations to VIP servers in Roblox
As mentioned earlier, VIP server invitations that are disabled are among the possible reasons why Roblox error 524 occurs. To clear this out, configuring the Roblox settings to allow invitations to VIP servers is also a potential solution. Here’s how it’s done:
- Go to the Roblox login page.
- Enter your Roblox account credentials (username/password), if prompted.
- On the Roblox main menu, click the Gear/Settings icon on the upper-right corner of the page.
- On the Context menu, click Settings.
- While on the My Settings page, navigate to the vertical menu on the left then click on Privacy.
- Scroll down to the Other Settings section to proceed.
- Then, select Everyone from the “Who can invite me to private servers” drop-down menu.
- Save and apply the recent changes then exit the page.
After exiting, retry running your Roblox game and see if the error is gone.
- Set up and use VPN. Some players who have faced the same Roblox error codes have managed to fix it by creating a virtual private network (VPN) on Windows 10/11. Utilizing a VPN connection can help fix security and privacy-related errors including the ones transpiring in Roblox because it helps filter the connection with the game server. That said, you can use a VPN connection to provide more secure connection and network access for Roblox.
- Use the UWP version of Roblox. Another effective workaround for this error is to launch the universal windows platform version of Roblox instead of launching the game straight on Windows 10/11. UWP apps basically comprise modern apps lined up in the Windows/Microsoft Store. It basically provides a common platform for every device that runs on Windows 10/11 OS. To use this platform, you will need to access the Microsoft Store then search for, download and install Roblox on your computer. After installing the UWP version of Roblox, sign into your account and see if the error is fixed.
- Contact Roblox Support. If none of these methods worked, then it’s possible that your Roblox account is banned. Should this be just a room or map ban, you can contact Roblox Support for further assistance to recover your account.
Hope this helps!
