Need some Patch help if possible
Return to board index
Hi all - This is Really a tech question, not a QQ... I am unable to reach Blizz due to high call volume.
I just did a fresh install of Win 7, then a Full fresh install of all 3 DVD's.
It loads the game fine, but I keep getting errors when it trys to catch up the patches. As of last night, I had it working, but it apparently is having troubles re-naming files to .Trash after the install.
I have run the repair 4 times now, and it just keeps loading the patches until todays, then crashes.
Has or IS this happening to anyone else, and if so - can you please lend advice if you have any.
note: if this is in the wrong area, please move to the proper area.
EDIT and Update::
To anyone who has this issue - here is what happened (also - feel free to lock this thread, but it could be helpful)
When using Win 7, you have to put your WoW folder in the program files. with XP, I kept it in the C:/ location, as it runs programs faster, but with 7 it HAS to be within a folder or it will error out as described above. Additionally, when running the launcher for updates, right click on the launcher and "Run as Administrator" and that will take care of the issue.
