Using Patch 2.5.2

Postby PennyPim » Sun Mar 17, 2019 1:05 am


I've been running WoW off of version 2.5.0 with no issues, but I can't figure out how to get the 2.5.2 patch that I downloaded working. When I run the new launcher, I get the error "Missing or corrupted data. Failed to open archive interface.MPQ." I can still use my old launcher in the meantime, but how can I get the update to work?

Thanks in advance,

Download the latest launcher.

You need to do the following:

1. Move the wow client to the root of your driver (Ex.: c:\wow-mania)
2. Make sure that the file is NOT read-only
3. Make sure the client folder is not read-only either
4. Add the client folder to the list of exceptions of your anti-virus
5. Start Launcher as Admin
