All Characters
It happened at least 20 times now

Tried restarting... tried repairing... checked everything they said and still no fix.

My game doesn't even open. A few times it's gone to the opening screen before it would go to Character select but it immediately crashes out. This is obviously not very reassuring with the expansion next Tuesday. As it stands I cannot access anything in game. My wife's game started up just fine though.

After patching I crash to desktop while on the loading screen. I've tried repairing the launcher and using the repair tool available using the launcher. I've had no problems before until today, and I'm a very disappointed subscriber >=(


And yes, this is a crash directly to desktop during the initial loading screen after hitting play on the launcher.

Patched, now I crash on the loading/splash screen every time I try to launch. Need an immediate fix, never had this before and have been a subscriber for a long time

tried setting both to win xp sp3 and the game crash while loading
tried setting both to win 7 and it work straight to my character select screen

I'm running win 7 64 bit

my suggestion is to make sure there both set the same and try again, hope this helps some of you with this issue
Confirmed worked for me on win7 64 bit system

Same here. My system is also based on Win 7 64 bit.
It worked probably before the update.

I launch the game and after the first loading screen it throws me back to the desktop without any error message.

Pls fix it soon. As an abonnemnt time is money........

I can't even start up the game, I double click the game shortcut, then click "run" and when it loads the login it either brings up the login screen and says updating login, or my computer says "t has run into a problem an has to restart".
Also I think its important to say that I have windows 8.
I hope this gets fixed soon.
