Have the same problem. OS is Win7.

Deleted all temporary files in client folder and forced client to re-download the files. But the error still occurs.

Please go to and download the latest launcher setup file. This will be used later.

Then, ensuring that you have the launcher closed and gone from your Processes list in Task Manager, delete the following files:
- "Patch" folder
- "Patcher_-1toXX" or similar folders
- "assets_swtor_XXX_XXX" or similar folders (do not delete the folder named "Assets")
- "Patcher.version" file
- "Launcher.settings" file
- "Launcher.exe" file

It's ok if not all these files are present, just delete the ones that are.

Then run the Fixlauncher.exe found in the client installation folder.

Once this has completed, please restart your computer in Safe Mode with Networking, and run the previously mentioned setup file.

I'm windows 8 but changing compatibility has not fixed the problem.
