I haven't played WoW in months because of a new job but I wanted to start back up again.
I log in so it can do the WoW Migration Set Up.
It says 'Your installation of World of Warcraft must be optimized before you can play. This process takes 15-60 minutes and should not be canceled once it begins. Do you wish to proceed?"
Then it comes up with
ERROR: The file "/Applications/World of Warcraft/Data/deE/expansion1-locale-deDE.MPQ" is read only and cannot be overwritten. Please try installing to a different location. (ConflictManager::DeleteFile)
Do I need to just completely uninstall WoW and reinstall it? Or can I just pick up the whole file and move it somewhere else?
This is just a permissions error. Try this and see if it helps.
Reset the permissions on your World of Warcraft folder
2. Press Command + I
3. In the Info box, go to the Sharing & Permissions section and click on the lock and unlock it, entering your admin password when prompted.
4. Make sure you have Read & Write permissions
5. Click on the Action icon (cog wheel) and select Apply to enclosed items
ive tried everything said on the other threads complaining of the same problem, everyone else, and myself all have definetly checked and re checked , disabled and renabled, and yet although it says its read and write.. when try the migration it still says its read only
Having the same problem here, checked all my permissions and 'everyone' has Read &Write permission on the WoW folder and the Data folder referenced in the error:
ERROR: The file "/Applications/World of Warcraft/Data/deDE/expansion1-locale-deDE.MPQ" is read only and cannot be overwritten. Please try installing to a different location. (ConflictManager::DeleteFile)
These are the folders in my data folder -
Can you post a screenshot of this so I can verify? If this is pointing to a non-existant folder, I would like to get a screenshot and add it to my report.
In my case, I do actually have a deDE folder in my Data folder: http://i46.tinypic.com/15drn8.png
