Hey guys,

So whenever I launch swtor setup.exe that you download for preload, it opens, the bar goes to 20% and then the window will close. The whole process takes only a few seconds, but its getting rather annoying.

I've had this issue since it was announced, but the forums were taken down

Halp?

Are you running FRAPS, Ventrilo, RadeonPro, WindowBlinds, Ivilinx Download Manager, DLLFixer or MSI Afterburner? Those have all been reported to cause potential weirdness in the installer. If you are, quit any of them that you're running and try running setup again.

I closed out all unnecessary programs. It completed extraction but the launcher still didn't load

Any ideas?

It put everything in the right place?

I'd check the launcher logs, then. Go to your SWTOR directory and look at the 'logs' directory, and you might find clues as to why the launcher isn't starting up there. Otherwise, I tried to put together a thread of common installer/launcher issues, and one of the fixes there might help? :/

AHA! found it

Ok heres a screenshot guide of what I did if anyone is dumb like I was

When you start your setup.exe, try to copy the file path its extracting your info to, and then copy paste it into your browser, when you open the folder it'll look like this

don't click the launcher in it, open the swtor file you see inside of it

click that launcher, and it will launch.

Its just that simple, can't believe I didn't find it sooner
