@Tristania.9801 said:there is a problem in the gw2 folderwhich is why a full re-install would usually work by clearing the whole directory and installing fresh files over it. if your install got corrupted due to a bad system environment or bad internet, then obviously there's a chance it will happen again

if reinstalling is a no-go for you (either because it will take too long/slow internet or for any other reason) then try to see if there are any .tmp files for gw2-64.exe or gw2.dat and restore from those. wouldn't be a guaranteed thing but it's a shot at getting a non-corrupted game file.

The only files that exist in the folder Guild wars 2 (which is windows xp 32 bit) are the following and also to mention that this issue has happened in 3 computers on the same time after yesterdays update.gw2.dat = 51526004 Kbgw2.exegw2.tmp =26.636 Kbgw.tmp =0 Kbcrash.dmp = 437.kbgw.loginclient.dllbin folder.The same applies exactly in all 3 computers.All of them have the same problem after the update

When patching, GW2 can fail to overwrite its own executable, resulting in Gw2.exe being renamed to Gw2.tmp (or Gw2.###). Attempting to start it after that patch will fail, since Gw2.exe is now invalid.

Delete Gw2.exe and rename Gw2.tmp to Gw2.exe.

Alternatively, download Gw2Setup.exe and rename it to Gw2.exe.
