Hi all,

Our team is still looking into the issue you encounter.

For those on Windows 7 who still encounter the C1/C7 error message, updating Visual C++ to the latest version should help you: The latest supported Visual C++ downloads.

Thank you and do not hesitate to let me know if this troubleshooting helped you.

Thanks for this, I've managed to get mine working again, but the issues has been happening after EACH patch for the last 3 or 4 patches, any idea why it happens each time?

Didn't work for me (Win 7 64).
Had to switch back to Win 7 compatibility.

Please fix this bug immediately.
May the Force be with you.

Even though you may not like the idea... It might be a good idea to finally upgrade your OS.
You do realize that they will only be able to patch Window 7 for just so long. When they no longer can or because they are simply tired of trying to, you may find you will have to give in and byte the digital bullet.

Oh and it's NOT a bug. Support for Windows 7 ended on January 14, 2020.
Your days using Windows 7 are Numbered.... Sorry.

Since the patch last Tuesday, I have not been able to log in. I've tried every fix I've found on these forums. Nothing worked. I uninstalled and re-installed. I can finally log in and patch. Game loads and now takes me to a blank server screen. My sub runs out in a week. Wasn't planning on leaving the game. Unfortunately if this doesn't get fixed by then, (or at least an explanation of what is happening), I'll be on my way. Which is a bummer.

I'm aware of these facts.

I've started to build a brand new pc in April, but had to stop because of the corona crisis.

Some components haven't been available and my favorite computer shop is closed at the moment .

Is this an automated message? How can someone still be looking into this mess that is affecting so many players. Workarounds are causing my guildies and friends to leave the game. I think its time to let us really know what is going on! Its stated there is a Cantina about new updates in the game. I think it should also discuss this issue as a whole! Frustration players eventually give up and leave and this is happening and continues to increase to a point where more will remove their subs.

Please tell us what is going on!
