Since yesterday I've been trying every possible suggestion available on the forums, repaired my launcher, ran setup again, updated my graphics drivers, ran as administrator etc etc... Still loads and then crashes to desktop.

Turns out what works for me is to run at compatibility mode for XP SP3... LOL ***...

ANYWAY.

I'm a win7 64bit user. Hope that helps anyone

Finally working for me. At one point, my Assets directory vanished completely, and I had to re-download the entire game. Now everything's working without using any compatibility mode or run as administrator (Windows 8 64bit)

Same here I had tryed all the steps proposed by ea/bioware with no luck.

Today i do just the opposite. I TURN ON compatibility modo (windows xp sp3) in both launcher.exe and swtor.exe. Then sudently it WORKS!! The crash to desktop startup problem was resolved, without restarting Windows.

Even now i have DISABLED compatibility mode in both files and the game works perfectly.

So if some of you want to try.

My config is Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, NVIDIA GTX560Ti and 8Gb RAM and Intel Quad Core Q9550
