Patch 5.3 "Failed to download required file"

Technical Support
"Failed to download required file, Please check your internet connection"

Well my internet is working fine and I can not get this patch to load I've been trying since yesterday and no joy. Is there anywhere I can manually download this or perhaps even a fix for my problem?

Thanks,
Chiibs
It's probably talking of the wow.tfil file.

Try downloading it manually :

Unzipping if necessary.

Then put it in your wow folder , replacing whats there.
I have downloaded the .tfil and replaced it and also deleted the "Updates" folder as suggested and still getting the same error. So frustrating lol
I am currently uploading a .zip file which should have everything you need for last night's patch.

Unfortunately, due to my poor internet here at work it's gonna take another 5-10 minutes.
Here's the link. Instructions are in the .zip file:

I tried pinging bluspacecow in IRC, however he said (and I quote)

Unfortunately I don't have access to a Mac, and can't put a zip file together for you. You'd probably be better off in the Mac Tech Support forum, as either MysticalOS or Tia may be able to better assist with a zip of that (unless there's an official mini patch - not sure how things work exactly Mac-side, sorry!)

No worries I'll try over there I'm deployed overseas and just play on my down time :-)

I replaced the file with the one downloaded. And the patch started to download the next time I opened the Launcher. Thank you for you help.
So I was having this problem and simply launched 'WoW-64.exe' and it started working.
Im having a problem where i cant download patch 5.3 it says try again later i keep trying but no use :(
87.5 percent download to my Mac book PRO. Then "Failed to download, a required file please check your internet connection." OMG this was the reason I quit wow all the stuffing around with patches. Cmon Blizz....
