DVD/CD MoP DOES NOT NEED to be installed.

Technical Support
If you have 5.0.5, you do not need to install anything. Just add the CD-Key to your account and wait til 12AM Sept 25th PDT
Ahhh huge help thanks!
Thanks much! Just got home from a midnight release and was confused as to why I had my mount & pet show up but no access to content.
The disk is prolly only up to 5.0.4 and we're at 5.0.5
The disc is 5.0 to be exact. This is why you can't install it. The disc is for people that don't have 5.0.5 or are re-installing
I was wondering if I had to do an update and asked a question but deleted it when I saw this one.

Thanks. Both I, and the moderators here, thank you.
YES!!!! And here I was about to post my own thread!!!
BUUUMPPP this bad boy needs a temp sticky
This is correct. Just add the key to your account https://us.battle.net/account/management/ and you'll be good to go. Don't uninstall =)

Sticky approved!
Yay! haha

Sounds to me like someone made a boo boo!

Or is that a blue blue?
I only have beta on my computer though.. nothing else, so are you saying I can't actually install my physical copy till 12am?
oh, then you definitely need to install with the disc. Uninstall the beta too.

The discs are for people that have 4.x or lower. Or don't have the game installed at all.
I tried that all before, I have beta on my external HD.. I then tried to re install with the disc but it was stuck on 0.0%

I was thinking of maybe changing my beta realmlist info and changing it to normal client?
Enable Show Hidden Files and Folders

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Show-hidden-files

Navigate to C:\ProgramData

Delete the Battle.net folder

Run the installer


You may be able to change the realmlist

set realmlist us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com
set patchlist enUS.patch.battle.net:1119/patch
set realmlistbn ""
set portal us
It just reinstalls that battle.net folder though when it's update the setup files as it installs.. and now it's just stuck on 0.0%

Where abouts do I change the realmlist? is it still realmlist.wtf?
realmlist.wtf is in the Data/enUS folder

it is odd you got the beta installed but the discs don't work.
You could try installing the game in Safemode with Networking. Your anti-virus may be blocking the install. You may need to run the installer as Administrator as well
It's installing now.. slowly but surely. (Thanks for that btw)

..I might try and see if I can tweak my realmlist on beta.. althought it doesn't look like there is one in the enUS folder?

(Even with hidden folders shown)
C:\World of Warcraft\Data\enUS\realmlist.wtf

This is where mine is on Live
Hmm nope not there, umm.. I could try and add one? ehh :s
