Im trying to update my launcher to play the pre-game thing, but my launcher keeps freezing up when im trying to update..
I tried everything in this thread:

Hey Pandabeer!

Can I ask a few questions?

What does your launcher look like when you open it? Do you see a sanguine cityscape in the background of the launcher?

What happens when you open your launcher? Does it grey out and claim to be looking for a 'launcher update'?

Lastly. If you check your main ToR directory. C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars-The Old Republic do you have a file named FixLauncher.exe?

My friend had a launcher problem and we bashed our heads against it for a while.

The problem was a bad Launcher.exe file. We fixed it by deleting Launcher.exe (Be sure to back it up if you try this...) and running FixLauncher.exe. He didn't have FixLauncher.exe in his SwTOR directory, so I had to zip it and send it to him.

Afterwards his launcher functioned and he was able to patch the game.

Unfortunately that's a different issue...~_~

Sorry. I really don't know what's going wrong there...

I tried running it in compatibility mode on windows xp, yet no luck.
