Good day all.

I had to do a re-install of windows the otherday.  I have WOWS on a separate partition.  I go to the the launcher.exe and did the last pach/update. When it was done installing the launcher restarted and now wants to download the game all over again 10+GB of it.  To make it worse, we have net metering here that limits me to 950mb per day total usage.  So in 2 weeks or more I may have this done :-(

 

So, my question is.. is their a way to avoid a total re-install of WOWS that I already have on my "games" partition ?

 

Thank you for any help !

Copy /updates folder from your old install to the new then restart the launcher

 

Sorry dead_man I do not understand. As far as I know I only have one install that is on the separate partition I mentioned. In my case that is G: drive.

I went to my G drive and launched the .exe.  The updater did the last patch with no problems.  So, far as I know I do not have a "new" install to past to.

 

Thank you again.
