    I reformatted my hard drive and am now trying to re-install world of warcraft but whenever i try and install it i get the following error...

    The file "D:\Installer Tome 3.mpq" could not be opened, because an error -2062548861 occurred. If this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (OpenArchive::Execute)

    I tried copying the files onto my hard drive but no dice. I dont think its the CD because other people have had this problem and tried different CD's with no luck. The only thing is no one has posted a fix to this error in any of the forums, so i was wondering if anyone knew what to do? Thanks!!!

    I know that when i had switched to vista i had to run the installer as an administrator. Just right click and give that a shot. I have to clue if its not for vista.

    ....... and?
    Marked solved but still no fix?


    Edit; From what I read it's bad discs. Changing your CD/DVD drive has helped a few people. As not all drives read the same. :rolleyes:
