Hello aziara,

Could you please provide us with a bit more information about the problems you’re encountering, so we can try to help get you back into the game?

What is the exact text of the error message you’re getting and when does this occur?

Could you also post here a DxDiag as well as your Launcher logs. Information on how to obtain these can be found here.

Thanks for your patience.

Hello aziara,

Firstly, I'd like to ask that you connect your machine directly with a cable rather than via Wi-Fi if you have not been doing so already.

Next, I would recommend that you perform the steps laid out in our Connection Issues thread.

Should the issues persist after following those steps, I would like to try and identify connectivity problems, with this in mind can I ask you to post your traceroute results here.

To do this please go through the following steps while experiencing lag issues:

1. When logged into SWTOR, press Alt+Tab together

2. Gather the IP information:
a. Press Windows Key + R, enter ‘cmd’ and press Enter (a Command Console window should appear)
b. Type the following into the Command Window that appears: netstat -n -p tcp -b | more
c. You will see a line like this one above [swtor.exe] :
i. TCP XXX.XX.XX.XX:***** YY.YYY.YYY.YY:***** ESTABLISHED ZZZZ [swtor.exe]
ii. The X is your local IP address.
iii. The Y is the address of the server you are connecting to.
iv. The 5 digit numbers, represented by *'s in both cases, indicate the port used.
v. The Z is the process id for SWTOR on your computer.
d. There will be two (or more) entries for the [swtor.exe] application;
e. There are currently two possible port ranges while the game is running:
3. In order to get the information from your connection, in the same command window, please type in:
a. tracert YY.YYY.YYY.YY > C:\tracert.txt
b. Using the IP address denoted above with YY.YYY.YYY.YY
Make sure that you perform the command without the appropriate port number that has been
found in Step 2.
c. A file will be created on your local drive (C:\) called tracert.txt which will contain the trace route information
d. Please wait while the command finishes (this can take several minutes).
Once you have returned to the command window, this signifies that the command is finished.

4. Please modify your tracert.txt file so that your IP address (entry number 1 in the list of IP addresses) is not visible and attach the tracert.txt to your reply for analysis

Please note we are unable to support users with 3G internet connections or over-clocked systems.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

I have this exact same problem. A few months ago I re-installed the game and had the same issue. I ran traceroute and found a bad hop somewhere in Kansas. After a few days it cleared up by itself and I could download and install normally.

3 days ago I did a clean install of windows 7, (just for housekeeping purposes,) I have not been able to download the client since, due to patcher issues. So I tried to workaround by installing from my retail discs then patching. But now my old nemesis, "error 5 repair." is back and I cant install the patch. After every attempt I have to force SWTOR to close. Very frustrating.

*Edit: Actual error reads "An error occurred updating. Repair (5)"
