You have to realize there are several THOUSANDS of people complaining/having issues right now.

BW doesn't have 10000s+ tech support people, they will be exceptionally busy for a while and probably will take quite a long time to respond.

Greetings All,

If you are receiving any of these errors it may indicate that the server is currently being restarted, or has been taken down for maintenance.

Please check the Server Status threads for any communications in this regard.

Try removing and re-adding the following files to your anti-virus and firewall exceptions:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic\launcher.exe

and swtor_setup.exe

Please run the launcher with administrative rights by right clicking and choose run as administrator.

Please note that some users have resolved this issue by running the launcher in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3.

For more information regarding Windows XP Service Packs please see this Microsoft page:

If the issue persists and there is no maintenance on-going, please contact Customer Support at for further assistance.

Please ensure that you have included a copy of your DXDiag and client logs when contacting Customer Support.
