Game will not update


The blizzard launcher says the game is up to date but when I launch (on PC) it says hearthstone needs and update and closes. I’ve tried all the steps on the known technical support issues thread (including reinstalling).

Please advise.


I had the same or similar issue Blng. What worked for me was right-clicking the shortcut, opening the file location, and running hearthstone.exe as administrator. Make sure is closed first.

This should automatically open up your After that, the update started right up.


Might be good to try reinstalling the desktop app. It might have some bad cache data for the game.


I had the same issue just now. I ran the scan and repair utility and it fixed the problem.


Yup, and then run as Administrator incase there is some weird firewall issue.
