Hi oofey,

We have identified a possible cause for this error to be related to a modified Hosts file. Please follow the below instructions to ensure that this is not causing the issue.

1. Press Windows Key + R
2. In the run box that appears, paste the following line and click OK:
%WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
3. Choose to open the file in Notepad
4. Once the file is open, if you find a line containing the address "cdn-patch.swtor.com", remove the entire line. For example:
64.145.87.64 cdn-patch.swtor.com
5. After making changes, save and close the file.
6. Restart the PC and try the launcher again.

This link details how to restore the hosts file to the default:

I hope this helps.
