Launcher no longer working after new patch

Recommended Posts

I'm currently having an issue with launching Guild Wars 2 after the most recent patch. So far I've tried the "-repair" on the shortcut, deleting the cache & roaming data, and I've tried uninstalling the game to re-install but so far I the launcher is not working. Is anyone else having this issue?

For the devs I found this error in Event Viewer when I try to run the launcher:

Just now, DeanBB.4268 said:

I haven't had the problem, but seem to remember issues with the TMP file during updates or installs. Is there a *.tmp file in your GW2 folder? Try moving it out to desktop and see if the update will run again.

I tried that as well but it hasn't updated yet.

I got it working now with a fresh install. I downloaded the launcher from the account page (which uses the old launcher and not the updated launcher you get when you update the game) and I had to add the launcher, .tmp, and .dat files to the exception list on my anti-virus.

For me it worked. The patching itself was a bit more weird than usual though. (Patched a few mins ago - not directly when the patch got released.)

That "pre-loading" (launcher background with the big numbers in kilobytes after which it closes and re-opens and shows the login screen with the news and stuff - and the game download/update bar at the bottom) happened twice and took a bit longer.

After that the real patch progressed pretty fast.(Not that many stuff I guess - with just mainly event fixing.)
