launcher trouble - "Failed to download information about the next patch."

#1HarmfulHamPosted 10/13/2010 2:29:22 PM
The updater spent hours downloading and finished without any problems, but now every time I open the WoW launcher, I get an error message saying "Failed to download information about the next patch. Check your network connection." My network connection is fine, and there seems to be a lack of blue posts concerning this issue on the tech support forums. Anyone know what's going on here? Big thanks in advance to anyone who any ideas.

Forgot to mention i'm using Vista, and my firewall is disabled.

My girlfriend is actually having the same problem (I googled the error and your message came up). We've tried completely reinstalling WoW and changing the security settings on the downloader, updater, and the launcher. Now we're at a loss.
