I got this error after the update and I don't know what to do about it, does anyone have an idea about what this is?



Thanks

I redownloaded the client and now I have to reload the 30,000 files for the game.... but I don't care much if it fixes the problem, I'll let you know if anything changes.

Okay mine is now fixed - seemed that my firewall decided to 'sandbox' GW after the update. Had to give permission for it to be a trusted program!

And, if it's not a firewall problem, right click on your GW shortcut and choose "Run as Administrator".
