    I have tried everything!!! wow won't finish downloading

    I hope to make the switch to ubuntu from win vista. I have tried wine, wine tricks and playonlinux to no avail to install WOW. The installer freezes as soon as it finishes loading the tools. It locks up and i have to restart to shut it down..... any suggestions?

    Only use the Launcher.exe to update WoW.
    Use System Monitor to "kill process"
    Launch WoW to play using Wow.exe.

    All well known issues
    Running wine/WoW on a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+(2.6GHz)w/4GB DDRII(667) and a NV9600GSO w/768MB DDRIII.

    What version of Wine are/were you using?

    There is a bug in Wine with the Launcher.exe and the P2P download option, where having the P2P option enabled would crash the Launcher.

    I think the fix is on AppDB or the Wine forums, just Google search it.
