Reopening and downloading my WoW account I am past %30 and is telling me it's playable. When I click on PLAY I get this "Failed to launch a critical file. Please close all other applications, temporarily deactivate your antivirus software, and try again. Alternatively, log in as an administrator and try again."
I am running on a MacBook Pro 10.7.5 OSX Lion

I would simply use the repair utility to fix your World of Warcraft installation.

It isn't a separate application, as it is integrated into the launcher now.

The issue for this is that it seems to be missing a World of Warcraft.app file. Did you move any files to the desktop recently?

Okay I just searched in Finder and I am missing a lot of files. How can I redownload them? What is being ruined now is Blizzard Launcher and I believe thats not what I want at the moment lol

If you're missing World of Warcraft.app/World of Warcrtaft-64.app, you will need to reinstall the game. All other files can be repairs/redownloaded from the launcher once the launcher detects World of Warcraft.app/World of Warcraft64.app.
