Question ragarding the WoW launcher

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well i installed WoW on my new rig, which has vista

And one day when going to log in, it downloaded a mew launcher and tools.

So I close it out after it is done, and every single time i double click it, it says "A new version of launcher and tools has been downloaded" Then when i click ok to close it so the new effects are added, it does it again, never letting me onto the game.

Only way to get on is to go into the folder itself and click the game thing, but if i make a shortcut of that, after i reboot it also makes that link the launcher which updates indefinately.

Any suggestions? Besides vista sucks nonsense lol

Hehe, you should know better than to mix WoW and Vista, thats like mixing Politics and Religion in a pub

The updated launcher is for the patch that may be out today/tomoro or more likely next week. The new updated toold means you can choose when to download the patch (mine was 350+ mb). From it saying that the new tools has been downloaded, you should enter the game, and then exit whenever you like and the background downloader should be up and running.

From your problem it sounds like you are closing the launcher instead of just running the game after download. If this isn't the case, Im apologise, I just woke up

Easiest way if you still have problems is to run the 'Repair.exe' in the main WoW folder. This will probably take about 10 minutes and should start you back at the point where you have to download the updater again, i think
