If you have ESET NOD 32 disable protocol filtering as well.

Same problem again. Can't find the newest patch yet.

EDIT: Found it.

The last 3 patches all screwed my launcher up. I don't know how many of us face this issue.

I had the same problem at first. Tried the solution and it worked. I logged in, but I haven't started the game yet. Will let you know how and if it'll work.

It worked without a hitch. Finally a solution.

Okay, maybe I'm getting the underlined part wrong here: where exactly is my "install directory" located? Is that the folder found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic ?

Edit: Nevermind, I found it.

"Remember to disable your virus protection" during the update... If you have ESET Nod32 you have to disable it to run the login update!!!

Holy cow. Thanks, dude. I've exluded the client from my NOD's protocol filter, and it looks like it works now. Гхыр, there was the same problem with "Alice: Madness returns" - Windows firewall made it crash every 10 minutes.

Hello im new on the forum but i think this might be intresting for those ppl who are having trouble with the "failed host" and maybe the developers can look also into it.

So basically i had to reinstall my game after a fresh windows install yesterday and bum! my launcher coulednt update! So i tried to google my problem and founed the solution with LauncherRepairUtility. It fixed my problem and worked perfectly yesterday...........but today morning when i tried to logg in, got same annoying "failed host" error again...i tried to use the LauncherRepairUtility again but no results this time...i completley disabled antivirus and firewall, tried safe mode, compatilbility modes, run as admin, reinstall from newly downloaded setup several times, i even uninstalled + the game reinstalled it(custom destination folder).........nothing worked. So after the disapointing game failure i uninstalled my game completly!! again!!!! and as a last resolve i tried to install it again but this time i used the default install directory (c:/program files/...) instead of a my custom directory like i had before (c:/games/swtor) and gues what? woilaaa! it started updating my launcher, no more "failed host" or any other error. Its working like a charm.

ps. i did not start the game yet, waiting to finish the update process first, currently at 73%. Download speed is pretty good 5-7MB/s. If i encounter any other issue after the update i will come back here on the forum and post it and im sure i will press that "unsubrscribe" button. Its no use paying for a game that cannot be played
