Well I guess I havent completed the 22 hour requirement to play after one of your Patch. Last week was 22 hours trying to get on and this week only 5 so far....

I dont understand because of Blizzards program errors it becomes my responsibility to read forums for hours and supject my Alienware PC. Im sick of blizzard telling me someting is wrong on my end, patch after patch after patch!!!!!!!

I try back after a day or so. Then again, then again, then again..............
I can be found @ Runescape vmx12. Iv had a paid account there sence Dec 2003 and they dont shut down every tues. Nor have I EVER had any problem that created the time spent here on just one problem. And just one problem here is more time consuming than the last 9 years on Runrescape added together!....That is no exacteration, I swear!!!!!. . . . Now that I think of it, I dont remember ever having a problem there......LOL

This forum just going be a bunch of people !@#$%ing about this or is something actually going to get done? at least an answer to the problem maybe? (Same thing happening to me)
I guess Blizzard is trying to lose business to Guild Wars 2. I'm having the same issue as well and everything anywhere on any website has failed to resolve the issue.

I tried everything in the guide that was linked and nothing. All my stuff is updated and I still can't get pass the "Looking for Updates" boss. FFFFUUUU tired of wiping on that SoB
Try downloading the newest flash player, this is what fixed it for me (along with always deleting the folder as previously suggested). This is what I downloaded :
and it worked perfectly. If you're willing to give that a shot, after it's installed, just make sure you go in and delete the folder again, as well as end the agent process. The "communication error" just seems to be a disagreement with flash players.

I HAVE A SOLUTION i think...

launch wow and get the error

then launch task manager

(i deleted folders also but idk if its necessary)

in task manager u will see a couple agent.exe process's

right click the agent.exe and open file location

In the file location rename agent.exe to something like agent2.exe

This will let u launch the launcher

Although my launcher is stuck at initializing....soo im not sure

This worked for me, but you have to re download some files when you get to the play screen.

Navigate to "C:/"
Click "Organize" on the left of the window's top toolbar.
Select "Folder and Search Options" then navigate to the "View" tab.
Under "Hidden files and folders", select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives".
Then go back to your "C:/" and locate the "Program Data" folder, inside that delete the "" folder.
If it won't let you, press crtl+shift+esc and go to the "Processes" tab and end the "Agent.exe *32" process. Then try again.
Run launcher as admin or proceed to next step.
If you chose to stop here and it doesn't work, you may need to repeat this step before moving on to the next step.
