My World of Warcraft Launcher won't update

Mac Technical Support
My launcher just sits there and takes up space. :( What can I do to fix it besides reinstall???
What do you mean just sits there? Is it attempting to update, but fails, or gets an error message?
If you mean that the Launcher is failing to find any updates or is "stuck", you could try deleting the following three files and re-running the Launcher:

In your World of Warcraft folder:

WoW.mfil
/WTF/Launcher.wtf (if it exists)

In your /Users/Shared/Battle.net/Agent folder:

agent.db

See if this helps your Launcher get back to normal operation.

@Hichigo - What exact issue are you having? Can you please describe the symptoms you have?
Not sure if this is the same problem, but mine will say "Updating Blizzard Launder", get about 75% done, and just sit there. no error message, just looks like it's still working but never finishes. I'm on a mac.
Nevermind. My problem was with the proxy settings on my computer.

Just reporting in that I have the same problem. I enter my password @ the log in screen, it begins to download a patch and then tells me it failed to download at to try again later. I'm curious to try the remedies suggested, but it seems after doing those people are having issues with the game not downloading anything past a certain %?
