Add me to the list... Just got a new 15" MBP, running Win7. Followed all the suggestions from this thread and others. No luck whatsoever. A flash of the Launcher then gone. I'm glad I still have my old MBP so I can still play, but I was really looking forward to playing on the retina display

Just to check on something, but I suspect it may be a low level driver issue

The Win 7 install

Does it have
.net 4 - plus any windows updates ( or 4.5 )
VS C++ 2010 - plus any windows updates sp1 etc
directx 9 - not needed but hey we are here -

Edit - When you start the launcher , start it as administrator and compat mode for XP Sp3, if this works ensure swtor.exe is set as XP Sp3 as well.

I wrote feedback on about bootcamp for that specific machine needing drivers update. Feedback is under OS X, subcategory hardware and software compatibility and boot camp. I know it's a long shot but hopefully gets voice heard.

Hello, 1st time poster here. I wish I had came here before dropping $2800 on a computer that wont run the only game I play. Ive also done everything as far as troubleshooting and drivers are concerned. I am running in Windows 7. If that helps.

I have the same issue with my brand new MacBook Pro 15". The launcher won't run. I've tried all of the things posted in this thread and others. I'm hopeful that a solution can be found soon.

For those with Windows 7, it helps if tech support is called so they get the logs and are aware of the issue. This is most likely old apple driver issue, but maybe swtor can update something in launcher to make it run too - after all other games run ok. I'm on windows 8, which tech support doesn't support - still looking for my old windows 7 key.

I did call Tech Support and send my diagxxxxxxxxxxxx.tgz file as directed. Patiently waiting. All this could be avoided if they would make a mac client.

Add me to this list of having the exact same issue with the launcher. Completely unable to play the game the last week+. Brand new MacBook Pro, BootCamp 5. No issues whatsoever on my older (2010) MBP running BootCamp 4, which I'd played the game on since beta.
