Tonight I was prompted to download a small update to the battle.net launcher, something about voice transcription and the like, whatever.
Anyway after downloading it and letting it do its thing, my WoW scanned and repaired itself. Okay fair enough, I run the game without issue, shut it down, and then exit out of battle.net. When I relaunch the desktop app my WoW is once again scanning and repairing.
Now every time I shut down and re-launch Bnet my WoW scans and repairs. I tried deleting all the .idx files in the data > data folder as is suggested and then running a scan and repair. It went fine but then as soon as I shut down Bnet and relaunched it, I was once again scanning and repairing.
I was able to x out of the scan and run wow anyway and it seems to be running normally, but I’d like to get to the bottom of this and stop it from happening in the first place.
Any help resolving this would be appreciated.
EDIT: After seeing some of the other threads I feel like I should clarify. My WoW only scans and repairs once so far, and then seems to be fine UNTIL I close battle.net all the way and re-launch it. Then it scans and repairs yet again. I’m not getting stuck in an infinite, non ending loop, and I’m not getting any error messages. But it IS acting as a gatekeeper, forcing me to do it before each time I play wow at the moment.
Edit 2: Rebooting and other options didn’t fix it. It also seems to happen any time I click on the WoW or WoW Classic shortcuts on my desktop, even if Bnet was already open and had scanned previously. And now that I’ve rebooted it scans, but tells me no repairs are required each time.
