Getting this error message once again. I DO NOT use SWTOR Unleashed. I tried unning in safe mode, and i'm still getting the same problem. I tried running fixlauncher as well.

I've gotten stuck at 10% on install then my launcher froze, next time i made it to 55% then the launcher froze again. After that, it was able to finish repairing the files, then it prompted me to repair once again after i completed the last repair process. I am now doing that repair. However, my launcher is now acting weird and randomly going from repairing 7 files, to installing....stopping at %12 of the install then going back to repairing 7 files by itself(looks like it might have actually restarted that repair process, the yellow progress bar went in the opposite dierection lol...)

My RAM and hard drive are working as they should, so they are NOT the problem.

This happened to me last update as well, took me a full day(no exaggerations here) of repeating the repair process to finally get it to randomly work. Wish I knew what caused it to work last time, unfortunately it just happened randomly after trying the same thing over...and over...and over ...and over...and over...and over

I should not have to devote that much of my time to get this game to work, specially when I'm paying monthly for it.

I have the same issue, my own post is here

I've corrected this issue, at least temporarily, by downloading the client onto an external hard drive on a separate computer, attaching it to my own and running it from there. Of course, if I have to continue doing it this way for every patch I will be incredibly dissatisfied, and not everyone has access to another computer from which to do this.

I was finally able to get it to work...don't ask me how though. I just kept hitting repair every time it came up until it finally was able to work . Only took me about 12 hours of repairing . I still cancelled my sub, i'll renew if/when i can download a patch without having to spend 12 hours trying to repair it. Seems like the game's performance gets worse every time they release an update.

My patience with this game is growing thin, and I refuse to reward EA/Bioware with anymore of my money when they are constantly screwing things up.
