World of Warcraft latest patch-Cannot Validate Game Version

Hi just upgraded to latest patch. Until that time game was running fine. Now I keep getting Cannot Validate Game Version. Did everything Tech Tips at Wow suggested - ran virus scan with McAfee and AVG - also used Fixwareout and ran repair in safe mode and regular. None of this worked - what more might you suggest?

    Did all of the things you suggested and also ran Spybot. Unistalled again (about 4 times) and installed from their site as my original came was off of a CD. Still no luck. Also did an install of patch from a mirror site. Thank you though for the help. Any other thoughts would love to know - now more frustrated trying to figure what is wrong.

There are a couple things u can do. U can delete the path and redownload it, u may have gotten a bad copy of the patch. Second thing u can do is to completely uninstall wow and reinstall it, this may take a while so do it on a day that u have time.

    well the only other thing i can think of that it may be a ram problem, that is wat happened to me. it turned out that after a patch my game wouldnt work any more and it ended up that some of my ram had gotten corrupted and easy fix is to change around your ram sticks and if it still doesnt work for each combination of ram then im not sure what the problem could be

Every time i try to download world of warcraft it says i have a fake serial number or something like that and it wont let me download things because of it. Just not world of warcraft but also everything.


Are you trying to download the trial version? If so, you HAVE TO click on a trial download lick which is not the same as the normal download link that requires a different serial number. If this is not your problem and you are trying to use a legit full game key, let me know OK?

Installing warcraft 1.24d without install path


Hello Sir,

I assume you were asking how to install game without patch.
Game installed from PC will have the version depending on when CD was burned.

However using patches doesn't do anything bad so it's strongly recommended to always have the lastest patch. Download you will find here: http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?locale=en_US&articleId=21220&parentCategoryId&pageNumber=1&categoryId=2542


Cheers,

I cant down loader a online game world of woarcraft patch my fire wall stops it


What firewall do you have?
They all have options to configure. You could allow the patch utility access.
Another way to do this is by downloading the patch manually from Blizzard's site. (I hope you don't need a link to find it)

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

World of Warcraft Patch problem


Try these two solutions -

Try to move the World of Warcraft folder back to where it was originally installed and run the patch.

Or try this -
1. go to Macintosh HD => Users => Shared => Blizzard: delete the .plist file inside
2. launch the World of Warcraft game and let the patch go through again, download/patch

Good luck.

Unable to Validate Game Version


Two causes for this error meassge either you are not running the latest version of World of Warcraft, or your game files have been modified.

It is possible that you have a virus or program which is modifying files on your computer. Scan your computer with an updated anti virus program to make sure that your machine is clean. Then make sure you are launching the game using Launcher.exe
If none of the above helps they are a few repairing tools that might fix your game, you might want to check "Fix Wareout".

Good luck.
