Hi west_tell,

I'm sorry to hear that this problem has occurred for you. First of all, please try running the fixlauncher utility, which can be found in the game folder.

If this has no affect, have you made any changes to your windows profile recently? Some changes, such as a language change or creating a profile with a special character(accented, Cyrillic etc.) can lead to this error.

Greetings west_tell,

One of the more common causes of this issue seems to be having a language other than English (United States) set as the fallback language in your Windows preferences. If you're running Windows 7, this can be set from the 'Region and Language' control panel go to the Administrative tab and make sure the 'Current language for non-Unicode programs' is set as 'English (United States)' -- if that's not the setting, change it and try running again.

Please confirm your Windows user account name does not contain extended characters (accented characters, Greek characters, Cyrillic characters etcetera).
If it does you might have to create a second administrator account using only basic numbers/letters.

Please try removing and re-adding the following files to your anti-virus and firewall exceptions:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic\launcher.exe

and swtor_setup.exe

Please let us know if the issue persists.

I had this issue too. Here's what Customer Support told me to do:

Please delete the following files from "%userprofile%/AppData/local/SWTOR/swtor" if they exist.


If this does not get you back into the game, please login to your launcher and run the repair function through the menu accessible via the cog button on the bottom left of the launcher.
It fixed it for me.

EDIT: I was also told to delete DiskCacheArea from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Bioware\Star Wars - The Old Republic\swtor
