I'm sorry I don't have any advice or help to give you, all I can say is I hope you figure it out =). I'm sure you had to delete in your task manager (if you are on Windows) I can't really remember how I managed it on OSX. So load it up, ctrl/alt/delete as usual then processes find and end the process restart.
If that doesn't work then maybe someone else can help you out.
Well, I bit the bullet and went to reinstall the entire thing. the installer can't update the launcher OH JOY OF JOYS.
But at least it's moved on to Updating the Blizzard Update Agent, so I suppose this is progress?
I tried rebooting a million times, I tried rebooting my internet and router. I windows 7 it had a box pop up that said connect to internet or work offline..
I tried ipconfig /flushdns and then reboot (this did seem to help but not fix it)I tried a bunch of other stuff too... but when I tracked down my copy of IE I opened up IE and I could NOT connect to internet!!?!?! I clicked connect to internet and then IE browser was connected.
I've tried several things, running wow as administrator, and my friend showing me how to delete the folder, but it didn't change anything. Every time I open my launcher that little window pops up, however I've never had it hang.
The little green bar whips to full very quickly, the tiny window goes away and the launcher pops up.
Please click the link below for more information or contact Customer Support if the problem persists. I'm on windows 7I tried deleting the Program Data/folder...
and the Program Data/Blizzard Entertainment/Battle.net/Cache Folder and then the whole Blizzard Entertainment folder.
