You clearly don't know, what you talk about. And this is not the right forum for me to educate you.

I tried the BR to SSN and it still has a ST in the corner.

Didn't do a thing, its still in streaming mode.

EDIT : After hour o f it doing th ST version and completing there was NO launcher on my desktop so clicked the launcher in the SWTOR folder after doing the edit. Then it for some reason it installed Visual C++ 2008 (even though I just installed 2010). NOW it's doing an install all over again in the normal way.

I hope to god this works or I am done. I have been dealing with this for 2 days now, since the patch, and am FED UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am having the same problem; been trying to instal the patch for 2 days now but it hangs and freezes on Asset 169 at 11% installation. I'm not using the Bitraider, or streaming or installing through SWTOR Unleashed and my computer configuration (i.e. firewall and antivirus) has not changed. I have never had a problem in the past 2+ years of playing with patching until now. It's very disconcerting and disappointing...

I had to switch to the SSN settings, let the launcher hit a downloading error, then switch back to BR, but now I'm finally past the never ending initializing stage.

I got the 99.79 death error and neither a router reset nor fixlauncher were solving anything, so a reinstall's in the works.

Here's hoping it actually WORKS...

There needs to be a sticky thread featuring the most successful way to download and install the game, along with troubleshooting pointers, they'd keep a lot more subscribers that way.

Brand new rig and that spyware grinds it to a halt. Another *******ed idea putting that in the launcher.

I had to make the 'launcher.settings' file 'read only' in order for this to work.

Before that it would keep reverting back to Bitraider and overwriting the changes I'd made to the file.

Bitraider needs to go (or there needs to be an option to fully disable it in the launcher itself).

It causes nothing but problems.

I just want my game to work!!! I'm not a software let's mess with the computer type. I need easy fixes, and these are not working for me at all. How many times do I need to use the fix launcher thing before it fixes the launcher, and makes the game work?
