I click the desktop icon, it starts normally doing the little update thing before the launcher starts but gets stuck halfway through preventing the launcher from showing up.
I'm able to go into the game directory and start the game via the direct wow.exe however any attempts via world of Warcraft launcher.exe just results on being stuck at the updating blizzard update agent stage.
Any ways to resolve this?
Thanks very much
I ask because certain products (AVG) are notorious for causing issues with such updates, while alternatives (MSE) normally leave well enough alone. Knowing your operating system just makes it a little easier for me to tailor responses to you as sometimes different steps are taken to achieve the same thing.
i use win7, and avast as antiviru
ps. to all who got this problem: use the second executable from game files to enter game, it works for me. just dont use launcher exe.
Using wow.exe to start the game. Blizzard launcher hangs after about 60 % loading.
Using G-data a-virus and never had probs updating or playing before. It started this morning.
Can't find repair file (removed after an update?).
Sometimes it says cannot connect to Agent. But most of the time it just hangs.
The prob wasn't there yesterday and other games have no issues, internet conn. no probs
Please do the following;
Set the Secondary Logon Service to Automatic;
Update Adobe Flash to the latest version;
Boot into a Selective Startup, then try again;
Ensure your internet settings are configured correctly;
And, as always, right-click on World of Warcraft Launcher.exe and select Run as Administrator.
Maybe it's just being really slow — I'll let it run for a few more hours.
Do you have any software updates available?
If so, please install all of them.
Otherwise, try booting into Safe Mode;
Then try again without opening any other programs.
Deleted the Battle.net folder.
Made sure the Secondary logon was set to automatic.
Completely uninstalled and reinstalled the game several times.
Booted up with selective startup.
Started shortcut as administrator.
No firewalls up..
Even tried http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/5208782559?page=1
Nothing is working. Cant even log into Diablo 3 cause of the same downloader issue. Been killing time on GW2 til hopefully this issue gets worked out but its been over a month.
Seeing all these bluepost telling us to manually do this and that... Which we shouldnt have to in the first place. Game working 1 day fine.. logout and back in and its suddenly broken..
Would like to continue playing. But not gonna keep my sub going for something I cant even log into.
(Note to Blizzard. Fix your crap... We're not paying your company just to have you tell us to fix stuff ourselves.)
- Check for server certificate revocation
- Check for signatures on downloaded programs
It worked for me.
