GW2 Launcher re-downloading the whole game!

    Everything is stored in Gw2.dat, which is located next to Gw2.exe/Gw2-64.exe. It would only do a full install if Gw2.dat wasn't there or was corrupted. Ensure GW2 is running from where you think it is (ctrl+shift+esc to open the task manager > details > locate Gw2.exe/Gw2-64.exe > open file location) and that you haven't been launching GW2 by using Gw2Setup.exe.
