    Can't download the GW2 client.

    Hi

    So I've done a format on my computer, or whatever it's called, and I'm trying to download the Guild Wars 2 client again. I went to account management and downloaded the file "Gw2Setup", but when I launch the setup the launcher pops up and after a few seconds I get the message "Download failed! Please check your internet connection and try again."

    Well. I have internet. I tried launching the setup file as admin. Has anybody else had the same problem?

    Go into ur virus software and allow GW2 setup Sounds like it's being blocked tbh.
    I'm going to cry like a little baby when Logan and Rytlock reconcile and have a glorious man-hug

    I have done that too, put it in the list of applications and chose "allow for all" in the firewall settings. I'll restart the computer and see if it just hasn't taken effect yet. Brb.

    Welp. That didn't work. But I disabled the firewall and that worked, so it was definately the firewall. Just wonder why the allow didn't work.

    When I try to download, it loads, then it resets and the closes itself o.o

    If you have AVG it's a problem with AVG. You can't allow the program but you have to actually disable AVG.

    I've disabled all my anti virus and firewall stuff. I get a launcher that loads 10k kb, then it reloads and I get a pop up asking for me to grant it permission, then it resets to 0kb and closes itself

    EDIT: Nvm, it didn't work with firefox or chrome. i tried IE and it worked lol :-\

    That's very strange cause I just download it right now with firefox.

    I think someone had the same issue :O I think he deleted everything and redownloaded the .exe changed folder etc. Try that.
