Don't install BC or Wrath if you're at 4.x
The first thing you need to do is, if you already accidentally installed them over eachother, like after you updated it put wrath in and got the error at 74%, uninstall the game and delete the whole folder. Dont worry if you do it the right way the installation will be much shorter this time than going through all the discs.
Okay, so to install the game, only put in your most recent game disc. Like for example if you have cataclysm, put in the cataclysm disc, and then it will install everything from cataclysm, wrath, burning crusades, and basic WoW. I think some people get confused (including myself) because the packages say like on cataclysm "Requires Wrath of the Lich King." You have to use the codes to upgrade your account to like cataclysm version or something, and that actually does require you to have all the games because you cant skip, but for the actual installation you only need one disc. The other option is to just install the original game (if you have battle chest i think you have to put burning crusades in too to get the last 2% of the download), and let it update all the way to the most recent patch through the game launcher like when a patch comes out. The ONLY thing you need from the cases with the other discs is the authentication codes. EVERYONE has all the content in cataclysm installed, because the game launcher updates it, but you still have to buy the discs because you can only use the content if you have your account updated all the way to cataclysm. So the discs themselves are basically useless, you just need one disc and the authentication codes from the cases that come with discs. I hope this was helpful.
I'm a new player trying to get into WoW, so i purchased the original WoW and played for a few days, liked it, and decided to buy Burning Crusade. I bought the expansion from gamestop and started to install it and chose the option to activate it to my account before installing. So I begin to install and it gives me the error: C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\common-2.mpg could not be found.
I did some searching around and found that as long as the game is activate on your account, you can download the client from battle.net. It says the game is activate and asks me to upgrade to Lich King, but the only game client I can download is the original WoW. Any suggestions?
ITS BEEN INSTALLING FOR OVER 5 FRICKIN HOURS!...and its on 67%, has been for the last hour...is there something wrong with the dvd?...
"Failed to download information about next patch. Check internet connection."
My internet is working fine as far as I can tell, and my firewall allows access to the Blizzard Launcher and updater.
Is there something I'm not thinking of here?
