View Full Forums : Trouble Dowloading Patches

04-20-2007, 02:46 AM
Now that i have installed WoW on my new XPS, the first patch downloaded, but everytime patch 2.0.1 gets to 99% ,it says it cannot create the file and stops.
Any idea how to fix this?

If you're using the Blizzard Downloader (which is a lot better now than it used to be) make sure you have your firewalls disabled or follow the guide on the WoW FAQ to open up some ports.

I usually tend to manually download the patches.
Here's the link:

Once you download it, make sure you place it in your C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft directory and double click to patch it.

Good luck!.

There are also much better places to get patches than the blizzard downloader.

Try Fileplanet for example. That's usually where I get all my patches, and definitely where I'll download 2.1 ( it's a biggy! ) from.

Does the new XPS have Vista preinstalled? Try running WoW as administrator (right-click, Run as Administrator), it needs full privileges to install the files.
