Game says it's running but doesn't pop up

Technical Support
I hit play on my launcher and it tells me the game is running but it isn't actually popping up the game. Anyone else with this issue?
It's possible you have a version of it stuck open. Try rebooting your computer and see if the issue persists.
Thanks I'll try that. I restarted the launcher but not the computer.
Problem solved.

Can also (much faster), end the process WoW.exe through Task manager.
End both if there are 2 running. Launcher will display correctly and will NOT say Game is running.

That works too ;) I tend to suggest the reboot method as I find some people are not familiar with opening the task manager and sorting through it, but for those comfortable doing so, there's no question that it's a quicker fix.

Glad you got back up and running Issirri!
Nevermind, just reboot or restart explorer.exe
