Help - "The update could not be applied"
Return to board index
I'm getting this error message after I've loaded the updater:
"The update could not be applied
The file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Blizzard Entertainment\World of Warcraft\Uninstall.xml.temp" could not be created. If this problem persists, you may be able to solve it by uninstalling and then reinstalling the game. If you are unable to correct this problem, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (InstallerFile::Create)."
Did anyone got this message too? Is there a way to fix it without reinstalling the game? (I upgraded it online and all I have is Vanilla WOW cds... so it will take a long time)
Thx for Help
Run the launcher as administrator, or move your world of warcraft folder out from your program files folder. Vista/Win7 restricts modifications to the program file folder, and the launcher can't apply the update as it does not have the needed permissions.
Thx a lot, that solved it.
