After my character fell through the world and caused d/c’s upon re-peated logins, I followed the Blizz posts that said to Scan & Repair under Options. This caused an endless loop to UPDATE/SCANNING. The launcher blocks attempts to un-install and re-install the game with a “Woops, something went wrong” message. Followed another post saying “Delete *.IDX files under “Data” folder then re-run SCAN & REPAIR.” This did not correct the problem and the endless “UPDATE/SCANNING” problem resumes. This problem seems directly related to the Launcher but deleting the Battlenet launcher and re-installing it does not correct the issue either. COMPLETELY locked out of WoW…launcher seems to be blocking a login into “WoW Classic” which I don’t play to much but have…with the same UPDATE/SCANNING loop…though I did not initiate a Scan & Repair on that app. The Launcher is blocking any play whatsoever. I’ve also tried the Blizz post that says to create a new Windows Admin Account and try the Scan & Repair again. That also did NOT fix the problem-same result.
Blizz-please just tell me that you’ll have this fixed on Tuesday maintenance-that’s all I want to know. Long-term player…would like to stay with WoW.
