I've never been able to install SWTOR

Hi m8s!

The truth is, I've never been able to install SWTOR. I thought it was a beta thing back in the days but the problem remains. I use the online installer (free trial). After downloading the 12GB of data, the installation starts and somewhere in a random asset; it just fails.

I am on win7, everything is up to date and my antivirus is disabled...

Worst of all, it seems I am the only one experiencing this problem, since other people are actually playing the game.

    I had to disable my antivirus and allow access through my firewall to the install program, immediately setting off red flags in my mind.

    I have two very similar PCs. Both are Windows 7 64 bit OS and I can't get SWTOR to install on one of them. I tried everything support said, what I found on forums, and copying the files from the working PC. I just gave up and cancelled. I have been playing online games since 1994 with many PCs and never had this happen to me before.


    You are not alone.

    The launcher is very sensitive. One of the good workarounds is try and take out a RAM stick or two. There have been reports that if there is any kind of problem with the ram, the launcher will just error out.   It's something that Bioware have said they are working on, and are redesigning the entire launcher to allow manual patching and less sensetive installation.

    I would suggest you hit up the official forums, and check out tech support.


    I am sure others have run across your current issues. GL in getting it sorted out. :)

    Not sure what the "12 gig of data" is you downloaded, but the swtor client is well over twice that big.

    I had the same problem.  Was due to a bad stick of ram.  Run memtest86+ to see if that might be the cause for you as well:
