windows 8 launcher missing.

Technical Support
I have a friend that plays wow on her windows 8 laptop. For some reason lately when she launches it goes directly into the game instead of the launcher. the problem is when there are patches it does not update and she can't play.

I did a quick search, i attempted to re-download the installer and run it like i saw sugested on one post, and it did seem to load a launcher and downloaded a patch yesterday, but today its doing the same thing.

I would rather not try and explain to her that she needs to try and re-install wow every time there is a patch, what can i do to get this fixed permanently?
Have you tried going into the World of Warcraft folder and running launcher.exe?

For the Setup to reinstall the launcher you have to delete :

* The wow launcher in the wow folder
* wow.mfil , wow.tfil and wow.pfil
* Battle.net folder
* Updates folder in the wow folder

Don't need to delete all the battle.net folder just Agent/Agent.db & Setup/wow_enus
