Frustrated with this.. The individuals who worked on the launcher really failed miserably. Although this problem has not been effecting the vast majority of people it dates back to mid July and people are still having this issue right now. I hope you guys realise that many more people will complain about this problem the game is actually launched (even though only a few people are experiencing this problem now).

/rant

I fixed this issue by reinstalling multiple times. And then it flaired up again today after the new patch.

Yeah, this is a problem for a lot of players. Fixing the updater is a high priority for us. I'm going to keep updating the first post in this thread for possible new solutions.

I changed my PC to another one (from Windows Vista to Windows XP) and downloaded the game.

I have the same problem as everyone have right now.

I realized that it stucks in 92% and the download rate starts falling till about than 0.2 KB/sec.

I will try to reinstall it again and change its path.

I also changed my PC today and I keep getting the same problem.

When I run the client, I keep stuck at 96% and that's it.
I tried to re-run the client but no luck, still wont install

I attached my Dxdaig

I got also an error saying ASSERT: Pointer error

This is what I get in my log:

The only real fix is to reinstall.

Another thing I found helpful was to uncheck "Enable Peer to Peer Transfer" and then restart the client.. After i unchecked it, my download speed went up quite a lot, so hopefully that works for you guys.

I just got invited to the beta yesterday and the client isn't working for me aswell

Though I'm not sure if it is an issue with the client or just with my Dorm's internet. If the client is connecting through ports or anything they block it might just be on my end.

I know they block torrenting so I've already unchecked the p2p download and it still doesn't work.

Any chance a manual patcher could be added?

edit as far as the download speed it keeps going lower and lower until it hits 0 and an eta of more then 7 days and then once and awhile it goes to .1kb

second edit: Attachment 1391

I use Vista x64 and had the same problem. Re-downloading and re-installing the game seemed to work for me.

For some reason, I have to download a file that was around 400 mb though, pretty slow.

edit: it seems that the launcher has a problem copying. before the re-install, it failed at 60%. now it failed at 72%.
