Access to path

Postby bamfcah » Thu Apr 19, 2018 12:46 am

Hello, it's been about 6 months since last time I was online and I'm getting a friend of mine online. We downloaded the launcher but when we try to launch it we get an error.

Access to the path
is denied

When I click okay the launcher starts but never downloads anything.

Any help?

that probably means that your '' file is read-only and launcher is trying to write into it. You can solve this easily.
Right-click the file -> Properties -> Un-check Read-only attribute and save.

You need to do the following:

1. Move the wow client to the root of your driver (Ex.: c:\wow-mania)
2. Make sure that the file is NOT read-only
3. Make sure the client folder is not read-only either
4. Add the client folder to the list of exceptions of your anti-virus
5. Start Launcher as Admin
