How to Troubleshoot and Resolve Roblox Error Code 529

Even though Roblox Error Code 529 is typically indicative of a problem on Roblox’s end, it might also stem from network issues on your system or with your ISP (Internet Service Provider). Unfortunately, the error message provides limited information, only stating: An HTTP error occurred. Please close the client and try again.

Fortunately, affected users report that the error most often arises due to a server issue. Nonetheless, if the server is operational, it suggests the root of the problem lies in your network, and identifying this source becomes essential. Thus, this guide aims to help you discern whether the issue originates from the server side, your internet service provider, or your network settings. Stay with us through the entirety of this guide for clarification.

Before attempting any system modifications, we always encourage users to restart their device. Doing so can eliminate bugs and reboot necessary services, often resolving issues linked to temporary data in volatile memory, which may fix the problem without further changes to your device. Make sure to try this first.

1. Check Roblox Server Status

As previously mentioned, Error Code 529 often signals a server-side issue with Roblox. Therefore, the initial step involves checking the Roblox server status and community forums, and the Roblox official Twitter profile. This will confirm whether or not Roblox is currently experiencing any issues. Follow these steps:

Visit this site,, to assess whether the server is facing any troubles. You may also peruse the comment section to see if others are reporting the same error.

Additionally, we suggest browsing the Roblox community on or the official Roblox forum to gauge if other users are also dealing with Error Code 529. Checking the official Roblox Twitter page for related posts may also be beneficial.

2. Change DNS Server

If the server is functioning correctly, and you’re unable to find others encountering the same error, the issue may reside in your network settings or with your ISP. A reasonable troubleshooting step is to alter your network settings, like changing the DNS server.

The Domain Name System (DNS) is pivotal in helping applications and websites connect users to the correct server by translating the human-readable domain names into IP addresses, since browsers and applications cannot decipher names directly.

Occasionally, a problem with the DNS can prevent Roblox from connecting the user to the server, which in turn might trigger various Roblox error codes, including Error Code 277 and 529. In this instance, we suggest switching to Google DNS, known for being more reliable, secure, and quicker than the default DNS server.

  1. Press the Win key, type Control Panel, then hit Enter to open it.
  2. Proceed to Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Select Change Adapter Settings from the left sidebar.
  4. Right-click on the network adapter you are using and choose Properties.
  5. Locate and select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) then click Properties.
  6. Choose Use the following DNS server addresses and enter the Google DNS server addresses as follows:
    Preferred DNS Server:
    Alternative DNS Server:

  7. Click OK to apply the new DNS settings and test if the issue has been resolved.

3. Reset Network Settings

Resetting the network settings includes reinstalling network adapters, flushing the DNS, and reverting any custom network configurations such as Proxy and DNS settings to their defaults. This process can determine if misconfigured network settings are causing Error Code 529.

  1. Access the Start Menu by pressing the Win key.
  2. Type Network Reset and press Enter to go to the settings.
  3. Click the Reset Now button to proceed with resetting network settings.
  4. After the reset, open Roblox and check for the error.

4. Use Mobile Data

If the error persists despite the network reset, it might indicate an issue with your ISP. To verify this, try connecting to Roblox using your mobile data through a hotspot.

  1. Connect your mobile to your PC using a USB charging cable.
  2. Go to your mobile’s hotspot settings and enable Hotspot Tethering to share your mobile data with your computer. If you have a Wi-Fi adapter, simply activate the mobile hotspot and connect your PC to it.
  3. Open Roblox and see if the error still appears.

Should the error be resolved after connecting to mobile data, it’s evident that your ISP is the culprit. In this case, contacting your ISP for a resolution is advisable.

5. Reinstall Roblox

If none of the previous methods have been effective, reinstalling Roblox is a recommended step. Persistent issues might suggest corruption within the Roblox application files.

  1. Open Windows Settings by pressing the Win + I keys.
  2. Navigate to Apps > Installed Apps. Find Roblox, click the three dots, and then select Uninstall.
  3. Confirm the uninstallation by clicking Uninstall again.
  4. Visit the Roblox website afterward.
  5. Start playing any game, which will prompt the download of the Roblox installer.
  6. Run the downloaded installer to reinstall Roblox.
  7. Once installed, verify if Error Code 529 is resolved.

6. Install the Microsoft Roblox Version

Alternatively, you can try installing the Microsoft Store version of Roblox. Since you’ve exhausted all other troubleshooting methods, opting for the Microsoft Store version could be the best course of action. Simply open the Microsoft Store, search for Roblox, and install it from there.

Finally, should all else fail, reaching out to the Roblox Support Team by submitting a ticket is the next step. They will be able to provide assistance tailored to your specific situation.
