I've updated my tools, but when the installation is complete the launcher errors and I am unable to run the game from it. I can run direct from the .exe without any issues.
Here's the information from the log about the launcher :
3747 Updater failed due to an internal or XML data problem. Message is 'Blizzard Updater was unable to start up.This update does not need to be applied. It requires a version of "WoW.exe" older than 126.96.36.19995, but you already have version 188.8.131.5295.
Is there away I can get around this?
Also, can I ask if you have recently been playing on one or more US realms?
Doh, I didn't even think about doing that. I'll delete the launcher now.
No, I haven't played on any US realms. In beta I have, but not on this account.
I'm not promising anything with that suggestion, but given that it's far and away the quickest and most simple thing to check, it's always frustrating to spend hours helping someone only for that to solve it in the end. :-)
Do you have a Temp folder in your World of Warcraft directory? If yes, please delete that, and regardless of if you do or don't, please remove the Updates folder.
Once you've done the above, try the Repair utility again.
Can I ask if you are running the Launcher by right-clicking on it and selecting Run as Administrator?
No I don't runas admin, I've just tried runas but get the same error. Just running the repair now.
After numerous attempts of removing the updates and launcher folders / file and running the repair tool, I was still getting the same error.
I download and installed the x64 client again, tools updated and completed the game update successfully.
Thanks for you assistance today.
