after going through the forums i cannot see this problem previously being mentioned.
i have copyed my whole wow folder from a computer it works on and it didnt work
i have downloaded the whole client again, and that version didnt even have repair.exe, not that it matters because when i try it in the copied folder it says repair cannot fix this issue and to re-install the game.
tried deleting agent file, updating to latest graphics drivers and even running the copied file off my external HDD (BTW 1 of my computers is running the copied file so its not corrupt)
also tried the launcher without P2P on with no avail
i dont wanna delete the MPQ file as i have a suspicion it will not be re-downloaded and will cause a similar issue with an error after pressing play on the launcher.
Also trying to run the game from just the wow.exe didnt work.
This issue is caused by an OS memory allocation in the way that windows do the initial check and start the program. Still don't know the tech 'why' this happened but it does it and I post a well explained solution to this problem in my personal Blog. Fully tested and Works. You can read it here with graphics:
