i have problem whit installing World of warcraft , when im installing CD-5 this text come up . The file "Uninstall\Win32\UninstallLocalization.xml" in archive "<unknown>" could not be opened, because an error 2 occurred. If this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (MPQFile::OpenFromArchive can someone help me whit this or having same problem?
i really dont know but if you go into documents if there is any folder ANY that says world of warcraft on it rename it because it may try to be overwriting some wow files u already have on but if not I dont think I know much what to do
I had the same problem/error... I was trying to install WoW on Windows XP Pro SP3 and received the "could not rename..." error at 98%. After a lot of tries, I decided to use the "Run as..." feature from the right click menu... and it worked!
I'm using an account that is a member of the administrators group, but the installer didnt liked it... when I used the "Run as..." with the administrator account everything went fine...
Rid my PC from the bugs.
I was very happy that I found the antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy(http://www.Search-and-destroy.com/antispyware.html) to help me rid my PC from the bugs that threaten its overall performance. I'm sure that you already know that when you search the wide world of cyberspace you pick up spyware and viruses that can make your computer run slow and sluggish. Over time, it will completely stop working if you don't find a good scan to prevent this from happening and the Search-and-destroy Antispyware is one of the best I've found so far. I love it and I'm sure you will too.
Will someone please help? i'm installing the 10 day trial and everything seems to of finished, but when I click "play"; this comes up :-
the dynamic link library d3d9.dll could not be found in the specified path C:\ProgramFiles\World of Warcraft;.;\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT\system;C:\WINN T;C:\WINNT\system32;c:\WINNT;C:\WINNT\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Common Files\AdaptecShared\System.
erm is that so hard then -.- just look for d3d9.dll and put it in C:\ProgramFiles\World of Warcraft;.;\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT\system;C:\WINN T;C:\WINNT\system32;c:\WINNT;C:\WINNT\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Common Files\AdaptecShared\System.
if that doesent work try to install wow to a little shorter file lol
like mines in c:\programfiles\world of warcraft
and done lol
Its very easy I had this same problem and after 2 -3 tries I started to read on some forums and I found out you have to explore the world of warcraft.exe file in the wow disc, then right click " Run as ", and you choose your account name and type on your password, If you dont have a password or account make one quick and remove it after the installation, hope it works out for you
So, I found the problem with this install. I was having the same problem as everyone else. Error Code 2. WowPlayer had the right solution but missed one step. Once get the error, you should see a folder show up on your desktop that points you to the install files. Right click on Installer.exe and "run as administrator". Fixed the problem for me.
You are going to have to remove any WOW files on your hard drive, including the installWOW.exe files and even the WOWTrial files. Everything. Then you go to worldofwarcraft.com and reinstall all of these files in order, from the first to the last.
just find the wow installer.exe and make sure you run as administrator
that will solve it
The problem seems to be windows not allowing the program to access files from another directory for security reasons, running as administrator fixes this
Otherwise you can disable the windows security
