    Hello,
    i am having problems installing World of Warcraft, whenever i attempt to install it i get through disc one fine, but when i come to disc two i just get stuck the file "patch.MPQ"
    I have tried installing it on my dvd drive but when i get to disc two i actually get an error saying that it cannot read Installer Tome 2.MPQ, i have tried downloading tome 2 but i still get the same error, can someone help me?

    EDIT: i left the installation on for 9 hours and it just hadn't moved from "patch.MPQ"

    I had a remotely relative problem installing WoW, what was happening is my running processes were whoring the CPU and killed the install speed (I eventually wound up having to format). Make sure the rest of your running processes are stable, and try a reboot and then install before opening up any non-startup proggies.

    If worse comes to worse, Blizzard hosts the download files in a gigantic download.

    well i just bought a new copy of world of warcrft today and it installed fine, i went to start the game and it said the interface files are corrupt and to reinstall the game, i did and it did the same again, what a waste of ten quid.

    Why'd you buy another one? Couldn't you just exchange it?
