Launcher fails to start WoW.exe

(Locked)

I have performed all suggested remedies by the Blues, including uninstalling fSecure, deleting the 3 wow folders, deleted both MPQ files, run the repair utility, updated drivers, downloaded the new tools and patch. I even tried the registry tweak suggestion but Launcher will still not start WoW.EXE. Just to note, I can run wow.exe separately with the original WTF and AddOns folder.

Wow.exe does not start even while leaving launcher running for a couple hours.

I am logged into windows as a system administrator.

If I can help with more troubleshooting please let me know.

The following is from Process Monitor as I hit the Play button:

My shortcut will start the launcher then when I hit play the launcher disappears and will not ever reappear. It doesn't start the game, and then when I go to run the repair it tells me that the repair won't run while the launcher is running. I go to task manager and nowhere on there does WoW or blizzard appear. So task manager says they aren't running, and repair tool says they are. Help me please


Hmmm 5 minutes after I hit play the game appears. What is that about? A few seconds sure, but 5 minutes?

I have the same problem since last night. My launcher patches just fine but won't start the game. However starting the game by double-clicking WoW.exe works just fine.

Starting this week Ive had the same problem on my new Win7 system. A little digging has found that Launcher.exe is hanging around even if I simply start it and then close it w/o actually logging in.

It has been several minutes (15+) and it seems to be eating no CPU but it is slowly eating up memory. It started with ~55M of memory and is now up to ~65M of memory and its not even supposed to be running.

Hilatel: Since it has no UI and does not show up in the normal applications list you are likely to think the launcher is not running. If you use Task Manager to find it in the process list and kill it there, you should find you can run repair.

I have to manually kill the task in order to get Repair to run. After I do this and try to restart, Launcher says it has to download updated tools so I wait for that. Once it does and applies the updates I can launch WoW once. After that, I find I need to seek out and kill the stuck Launcher.exe task in order to log in.

Same problem I think. WoW patches fine. I click "Play" button and everything disappears. I checked in process manager and shows WOW is running [about 53,000 kb] but game will not play. I have tried repair. So far everything I have tried does nothing. RIFT and other games play fine. All web access links work fine. WOW just will not play. My son on another PC has no issues. We both run Win 7. I am really getting tired of the issues with WOW.

Everytime I have to kill the launcher.exe and then run the repair utility the repair corrects a problem which causes launcher to redownload the tools and 30mb patch. the following is from the repair log:

Had same issue (Launcher.exe hangs after pushing Play button, Wow.exe does not start), just fixed it via following steps:

1) Start Launcher
2) Start Repair tool
3) Kill Launcher task
4) Run repair (reports WoW repaired)
5) Start launcher and let it patch completely
6) Push Play

WoW now starts and runs normally again. Hope this helps someone else.

Tried uninstalling the last 2 windows updates that i had installed on june 28 and june 30. Did not make any difference.

I am having the same problem. The launcher will bring up the news screen but once I hit play it goes away and the wow executable does not start, though the launcher.exe continues to run in task manager. If I reboot, about every 1 in 6 times the wow.exe starts. My wife's computer is fine though.

I've tried all the steps suggested above, and still having the same issue. Also, this is a new computer, so I just reinstalled WoW. I haven't even logged on yet. So don't bother going so far as to reinstall (just in case you're crazy enough to take the time to do that). It won't fix the problem.

Update - the fix didn't last. I've just applied it again, and it appears that things are working again, but its clear the underlying problem remains. The latest patch doesn't like some Win 7 systems?

I am having the same problem as above. Noticed that each time i log into WoW that the time between pushing the play button and the time the log-in screen comes on gets longer and longer till it will never come on. Then have to reboot and it tells me on reboot that windows was not shut down correctly. So now i have to run repair each time before i push the play button to make sure that the launcher will work correctly and in a timely manner.

Running Windows 7.
