I run windows vista. how do i look and see?
Can anyone help me with this please. Id like to play the patch been waiting all day
I have the same issue. makes it about 2/3 through and then stops... gives me the error after u wait for a while.
What happens to you is EXACTLY what happens to me.. it gets about 2/3 the way then the message regarding the tracker pop's up.. I mean I'm irritated that this Isn't working out. I don't mean to be ungrateful or anything but Blizzard can you please get on to this issue.. I use wow as a daily stress reliever and i would very much like to play this-evening
I have the same issue, but mine only gets about 1/3 of the way before it says it cannot connect
Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.
how would you do it on a mac
I had this problem, the issue was that I was using an old launcher.

Go re-download the WoW client from, I'm almost positive that will fix it.
Thank you so much Eumaadbruh, I went and reloaded the WoW client as you said and omg I am already in the game. 5 hours of doing all the other stuff that the Blue Post said to do and nothing worked, but your advice was the best... You Rock!!
