Hello.

I've tried opening World of Warcraft and all it does it opens the launcher on my dock for about two seconds before disappearing. I've tried to delete the WoW.mfil file but it won't let me.

If someone has the time, please help me out. :)

How do you mean it won't let you ?

Are you doing the install on an admin user ?

Have you tried restarting ?

Mine opens but doesn't initialize. I opened the launcher to get the new patch while I was at uni and when I came home after like 4 hours it was still initializing. Anyone else with this problem?

If you're having the internal error, please try this: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6489929151#2

@Rollwithdave- This has been reported at universities, as they have additional security settings that can cause issues with patching. Are you able to try this at home or another location?

If you look at your WoW folder in Finder, what versions are the World of Warcraft.app and World of Warcraft Launcher.app at?

What happens when you run the launcher? There was a patch today, so if your client has not patched, then this is why you get this error.

Then something is still borked.

  • How are you launching WoW? (Desktop Shortcut, Dock Icon, via Finder from Application folder, etc)
  • Can you verify that your WoW folder has all these files? http://i50.tinypic.com/2isuxch.png

    I havent played Wow in some months and a friend convinced me to come back for MoP. I started up my launcher, hoping it would upgrade to the latest patch and start D/L MoP. I open my Wow Launcher (I dont seem to have a -64 version as shown above?) The launcher opens another screen saying World of Warcraft Optimisation. This says it will take 15-60 minutes, I enter my correct admin password, but it does not go any further.

    My launcher is V4.3.4.15595, so not sure if it needs to upgrade patch first? It doesnt give me an option, just goes straight into the Optimisation screen?

    Thanks.
