Wrong loading screen
Return to board index
Every time I start up World of Warcraft, it starts up with the Cataclysm loading. And it also pops up with a second window saying "Checking for Updates" well this never happened before till a little while ago. I just ignored it till it pissed me off. What could I do to get the Mysts of Pandaria loading screen, and for it to not check for updates every single time.
Right click the launcher and load as admin.
Every single time it does this. And I ran as Admin and it didn't work. So here's a screen shot.
update itself, odd... are you sure your Windows user has the proper rights to run applications as Admin? Is it a computer you got from your employer, is it preowned, does it have parental controls?
As a workaround, if the recurring updates take too long, just start the game from the WoW.exe, this bypasses the Launcher.
Greetings, I am not sure but I have a feeling you are using the old launcher you could try Deleting the launcher and re-installing the launcher from the blizzard website ( install the latest ) if this does not resolve your issue i suggest talking to Blizzard them self as they could provide more detailed instructions.
I agree with Shadowrem - inside the World of Warcraft folder, you should see the .exe for the launcher. Delete that, and then start the digital download for World of Warcraft again. The first thing that will install is the launcher, as soon as that is installed and is running, you can halt the install and then reinitialize the WoW.exe.
Thank you :)
Had this same issue on my wife's computer. Ended up just moving the whole World of Warcraft folder to the desktop, re pointing my addons to update there, made a new desktop shortcut to point to there, then hiding the folder only, not the sub folders and contents so i didn't have to look at it.
Typically, these events happen when you have the game or the launcher itself installed in more than one place on the computer. If things get particularly complicated, I'd advise just wiping all versions of the game/launcher out - and starting from a fresh
