I’ve been trying to launch WoW through the Battle.net launcher, but it’s indicating I need to install it first (for retail, classic & tbcc beta). Worked fine at every other point, until today. Clicked “Locate the game” & went to it, but message states “This folder doesn’t contain the correct version of this game. Please check the installation path and try again. ‘More help: BLZBNTAGT00000AF0’”. I followed the troubleshooting tips indicated for that error code, but launching directly from the game folder didn’t resolve any configuration errors. Followed suggestions from a similar topic & uninstalled/(clean) reinstalled the launcher (twice actually, temporarily disabling Norton the 2nd time just in case), still nothing. In the launcher settings I went to Settings>Downloads & ‘Scan for Games’, but after I path it there, nothing for WoW shows up on the list. I even went ahead & clicked “Install” to see if it’d recognize it was already installed & maybe just update, but it’s indicating I need 74+GB & don’t have enough space (which is true… I need to get a new laptop. Yes, has to be laptop, no place to setup a desktop). Given issues I already have with the computer, it’d take hours, or even a few days to uninstall & reinstall the games.
I recall a message popping up last night that Battle.net updated & needed to restart, and now today it can’t see the game. Seems that update would be the most likely cause. I’ll continue launching it from the game folder for now, but would like to know if there’s a way to manually reconfigure the launcher to recognize the game is, in fact, already installed. Or, if the last update to the launcher can be reviewed to see if there was an unintended oops.
