when I open the game launcher, the patch starts to download but within seconds a message appears that says "Your game installation is damaged. Please run repair." and i run repair and nothing happens
ok so im just reinstalling WoW with the cata disc. is this right that it'll be updated till 4.0 and no other patching is required other then the ones after 4.0???.

Man, this is crap.

My internet speed is slow, so I don't want to take 12 hours to download WOTLK and CATA.

So I was going to go get hard copy's from the store to install with.
Now, you are telling me that this will corrupt my game?
What a load of crap.

So does this apply to both the online and standard one? Because my WOW CD is ancient (I think version 1.0.0) I opted for the online download and (after a lot of problems) got to the current version. I recently bought Burning Crusade. If I log into the client is my game file going to be corrupted?)

This perfectly describes my current problem, but I have damn near no idea how to interpret the solutions given in the thread. I got the error at about 75 percent, so I uninstalled everything and am currently re-installing the base WoW discs. Can I install Burning Crusade before the patch and have it run normally, or did I just spend 20 bucks for nothing?

If it makes a difference, I purchased the physical disc copies of the base WoW and Burning Crusade.

I had a problem after I installed Cata I saw the old school log in screen and was like well ok and tried to log in. it did that whole update crap where you need to click the restart button tried to log back in and WoW crashed. I deleted my "WTF" folder and that fixed it.

Alright. I've read the entire forum.

So, pretty much, I only need to enter the authentication keys and that was it?

I bought all of the games up to Cata, and entered all of the authentication keys, then completed the 4.0.3 this morning. Is that all that I needed to do?

I'm so aggravated. I'm new to this.

Every single time I try to play WoW, I get a message saying that WoW.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. It has been doing for a week and I have no idea how to fix this! I just upgraded my video card and it still shows this error. Does anybody know what is wrong?!

You don't want to post unrelated issues in a sticky thread. We won't read it. Make your own with more details.

You'd call Billing for something like that.

I was trying to install WOTLK just now, it gave me an error at 74% or so, it said this:

"The file "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Data\common-2.MPQ" could not be found. If this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (OpenArchive::Execute)"

I guess I don't need to install the game then yes? Just hit play and I'm good to go? Cool alright.

I don't understand, I install correctly all of the game client ( 4.0.0 xx ). When its finished, thats say to open our Launcher for upgrade patchs, I double click on my icon Launcher and he just... don't open... I try again, same things... Then I've tried to directly open the game in the wow files and when im on it, I enter my pseudo's name and my password and then everythings crash with wow error...

Please help me. :) Actually my account is a BC version.
