Poor me, my computer won't let me download the patch. D:
Very simple, I try to log in, it tells me i need to download the patch, and then it tells me: "Failed to apply patch, please try again later. If the problem still occurs blablablablabla."

I've looked in other forums for help, but none of the solutions have helped me. I was told to go straight into my WoW folder and start the downloader, but it tells me there is no patch to download.

After a while of being frustrated, i decided to try again. Logged in just fine, but the realm list was in red. Wasn't sure what that was, so I just logged in anyways. And it worked fine. Got in a group for VoA25, and we attempted Toravon, and the same thing happened midfight. My game crashed, and when I tried to start it up, I got the same "Failed to Apply Patch" error.

Now the game refuses to let me log in, giving me the same error every time.

Any other info needed please let me know.
Thanks for the help in advance!

If you're running Windows Vista, try starting up WoW by right-clicking on the World of Warcraft shortcut, and choosing "Run as administrator" (http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p276/bitsf/vista_admin_02.png).

If you're using Windows XP, please verify you're logged on an Administrator account. You may need to create a new User Account (The Account Type should be Computer administrator.). Then log on that User Account and try patching.

This is how to make a new User Account in Windows XP:

There have been many cases where the sole Administrator User Account has become damaged or corrupted. It's a good test to make another User Account and try WoW out on the new User Account.

Gobuffurself, I would revert World of Warcraft back down to a previous version, and then patch up again.

Delete any patch files from the Data folder (World of Warcraft\Data), like:

patch.MPQ
patch-2.MPQ
patch-3.MPQ

Then run the Repair Utility. The Repair Utility will say, "World of Warcraft is seriously damaged and will need to be reverted to an earlier version. After it has been reverted you may need to patch up to continue playing."

Afterward, run WoW to patch back up.
