Launcher "PLAY" button grayed out
Return to board index
Hello. Recently whenever launching WoW, the big Play button remains grayed out and is not clickable. Normally it would be gray and little text next to it would say "initializing..." or something to that effect, then it would disappear and the Play button becomes clickable. Now it doesn't even have the little text, the Play button just isn't clickable.
I know I can go around this issue by opening the Wow.exe icon in my WoW folder to open the game but I'm concerned about what could be causing the issue with the Launcher and if it could have a serious affect on the WoW program or my account. This issue started shortly after the Security Press Release so I am unsure if that has anything to do with it. I have already taken precautions and measure to secure my account.
Anyone have any idea what could be causing this, and if so how to fix it?
goto wow folder.goto repair. then try again. if that doesnt work blizzard support. i use them often. always helpful.
Thanks. I'll give that a try.
I think what bugs me the most about this is that since the Launcher isn't working properly, I haven't gotten any notice that the Blizzard Downloader is doing anything.
Did you get an update for your OS or security software? That might be inhibiting the launcher. I know my Win 7 computer requires me to authorize the launcher each time I launch it even though I have most of the alerts turned off and have it set to run as admin as default.

I can tell you with near certainty that the recent Security issue would not be causing the problem you're experiencing in the slightest.
The only reason that the Play button is unavailable would be a patch, or re-download of damaged data files, but that's pretty noticeable anyway.
