I have tried several times to get the launcher to open but all I get is a little blue circle spins for a couple seconds then disappears. I wait a minute or 2 and try again, same thing, then after a minute or 2 i get a notice saying only 1 instance can be running at a time, I click ok but the launcher still never opens. I was just in game 2 days ago and everything was fine. Any ideas?

Have you tried restarting the computer?

I'm having the same problem. And I have already reinstalled the game.
The DNS flush and run as admin are not working either.

Open Windows Explorer (file manager) and surf to your SWTOR installation. Then try running Launcher.exe from within there. If that works, right-click on Launcher and select Send To > Desktop to make a new shortcut.
