Deleted the file and it's patching up pretty quickly.
Btw Mas OSX 10.7.5
In your Updates folder under World of Warcraft, delete the file with the number 16357.
Or, when you open the launcher that's giving you the error message, at the upper left corner there is a help button. Click that, then click repair tool. Apparently, that fixes it for you.
Go to Computer or My Computer, click on Local Disk (C:)
Then, look for World of Warcraft in one of the folders, usually under Program Files, Program Files (x86), or, where it should be:
Users folder, then Public folder, then Public Games folder.
Open the World of Warcraft folder. Then click on the Updates folder. Then highlight any file with 16357 in it and delete it. Close everything out. Relaunch and let it repair. If it doesn't work the first time, do it again.
For those who want to know where to go to delte the file the entire path is in the error box! starting with C:\Program Files(x86)\World of Warcraft\Updates\wow-0-16357-win-final.MPQ
Also, scratch the above about having to delete over and over when the install stops all of a sudden and seems not to be working anymore. As I was typing this post it finished. Just be patient and let it finish it will be fine as long as no error box appears.
12/10/2012 08:24 AMPosted by BluspacecowCan you tell me the exact name of it and where it's located? I had the same problem, ty.
The name of it and path of where to find it is in the error message lolDeleted it a bunch of times, it's working now. What's really weird is it seemed the file never fully deleted. >.> Went from 0% to 90% right away with 2.3mb left, then done. Was saying 263kb left at 95% or 99.9%.
Might of still had launcher.exe and agent.exe open. Make sure those processes are not open in the task manager before deleting.The repair tool under "Help" fixed this right up for me as well. I definitely recommend you try Blizzard's in-game option before you start deleting things.
That's the Help menu in the menu bar when you have the Launcher open everyone.
So this was the agent.exe being open was the problem for me. When i deleted the updates folder and went to start back up the agent.exe was still running in my processes and was messing up my download every time. When i hit ctrl-alt-delete brought up my task manager and looked at the processes i watched agent.exe disappear from the list shortly after opening the task manager. Which means it just needed some time to close itself. After that happened i restarted launcher and it was able to correctly download the patch file and now i'm working fine. Thank you for helping.
If deleting just the corrupt patch file doesn't work, then lets also replace the launcher files.
Edit: Did all that but I have a "wow-0-16309-Win-final.MPQ" in my update folder.. not ending in 7. It still does the same !@#$. I'll try delete this wow-0-16309-Win-final.MPQ file then.
Edit #2: That still doesn't make it work.
Edit #3: Did all of the steps in blue post AGAIN. Still not working.
Edit #4: Did all steps again (then did a reboot to make tech support happy lol), then attempted to launch. Still same issue.
Edit #5: Did a repair and still the same issue.
