Stuck at "Updating Blizzard Launcher"


81 Blood Elf Hunter
Seem to be a few people lately with this bug. Agent.exe is the worst possible thing to ever enter any Blizzard game. Hopefully the Wow devs find a way to fix this terrible excuse for an updater. Much love.

I'm having the same problem. Windows 7. I've deleted the folders that support mentioned on the last page, but the bar still isn't moving.

Success! It worked.

I'm having the same problem... I tried all steps mentioned and nothing helped... I'm using windows 7 so maybe thats making a difference?
I just checked my task manager and I have 28 Agent.exe*32 running... all are about 4000k

For those of you who tried the solution, but it didn't let you delete the Folder:

Go to your Task Manager.
Go to Processes.
End every process with the name of Update Agent.

Same issue here.
It was stuck at roughly two thirds of the way. I deleted my folder in AppData & deleted my cache & update folders in C:\Users\[User]\World of Warcraft

After doing that I noticed little to no change so I launched it with Windows Task Manager and manually killed 3 Agent.exe. Doing this made the update process repeat itself and about 5 minutes later it has put me on the Launcher properly. Now I have 352 MB to download but that is all.

I also had this issue a couple of weeks ago, with the advent of patch 5.1 (Landfall). Now with the patch that introduced the Cinder Kitten it seems the problem reoccured.

I hope this issue does not occur again in 5.2 but I have a feeling it will. Please sort this out as it is quite annoying.

Having the same issue on Windows 7. Keeping my fingers crossed for some kind of fix, because the one provided doesn't seem to be working, or else I'm missing some details.

This has been going on a few days now for me.
