Greetings Oxydian,

Please reboot first, then log into the launcher and before pressing play click on the cog icon and choose repair. Please run the repair utility multiple times until there is no indication of files being repaired. Reboot again and run the launcher when ready.

Feel free to post again if your issue persists.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic

Dear Cerimon,

Thank you for the anwer but this is not about the launcher, it's about the file you have to download on this webpage SWTOR_setup.exe, it doesn't work.

Best Regards,
Oxydian

When you start setup it shows that file is in use (is it shows or list in event viewer witch one is locked)?
