I strongly suggest that people just wait until tomorrow and then launch the .exe again.
i moved my files to my desktop its worked fine but after relaunching it again i got the error . i thought i fixed it but no :P
~The only opinion that matters is your own.Everything else is just advice,~
Juat fixed this morning, i did not download anything but again it downloaded 12GB of game -.-, still im happy.
Edit: crashed again...
Still crashing, have tried all the tips in this post.

I guess I would just have to download the entire game again tomorrow, since I can't even launch the launcher, hehe. I hope everyone is on broadband connections hehe.
ArenaNet is aware of the problem(which is on their side) and they are working on it,so no need to re download the entire client.
In the land of Predators,the lion does not fear the jackals...
prollem just got fixed! thanx every1 and see you in beta!
OK, after trying numerous suggestions, the last files finally downloaded and I was able to launch the game client. Nothing was working initially, so decided to apply the principles of chaos theory and just started changing shit up randomly. What finally seems to have worked is flushing the DNS, creating a new shortcut called GW2 Repair, adding the -image switch to the file path, running as Administrator, setting compatibility to XP SP2, setting the launch shortcut (not the newly created one for the repeai) in exactly the same way, except for the -image switch, and finally, sacrificing a goat to the dark gods. I don't how much of that was needed, but I'm banking on the goat being the key.
Incidentally, the client won't close properly and needs to be shut down via Task Manager, but at least it seems to be running and it recognized my login creds. Also, don't use the Repair shortcut to try and launch the client.
Here's hoping this gets straightened out for everyone by Friday.
just updated and worked ! ,i was having crash problems for 2 days
Yep working for me too! Downloading 200K files as we speak.
Yep. The on again off again relationship continues to keep us guessing... but tonight is ours.
It is quite hilarious watching everyone on multiple forums freak out at the crashing client. I mean, this isn't a beta or anything, right? They couldnt't be testing hardware and network setups at a time like this, eh?
People need to calm down and relax. This is a beta. How are you guys gonna react if a bug pops up and you can't play at all during the weekend? It happened during the first one, and it could happen here. I almost want it to happen. The forums would be blowing up even worse during the first BWE.

I bet they will cancel their pre-orders and tell us that the game is too buggy !
Are you people serious? People freak out b/c they are afraid they won't be able to play bWE. Have some empathy or is it too much to ask from a human being.
People read this i hope it helps.
1- remove all your registry of guildwars i recomend downloading Winutilities and use registry search, and search the name Guildwars and remove it all.
2- download the setup from https://account.guildwars2.com/download and instal it.
3rd - Right click the Guildwars 2 desktop shortcut and run as admin and compatibility windows xp service pack 3
4th - Follow these steps in this video
This worked for me, like a charm.

Heh, they're like our very own version of Statler and Waldorf, but without the wit and charm.
I had this problem too, the fix for me was DNS. I changed to the free google dns servers of 22.214.171.124, and 126.96.36.199 then it worked with NO problems!
I was having the crash problem all week. I just tried this morning at 9 am CST in the US and the patcher worked like it used to no problems. It was a big update.
looks like its fixed now. crisis is over. move along people, nothing to see here.

They hot fixed the client, thanks Anet
Nope, still crashing for me! Even after the last 3-4 hot fixes...le sigh
Humans are also known to cause the type of reactions you see when they're in panic or overly nervous. That's what's happening here. I'm not saying that would make it alright to post that reaction publicly, indeed some empathy would be better but there's too many people who lay it off their chest first by ranting instead of putting it into perspective and calming down that way.
That said, my ISP had maintenance from midnight to 6 AM this morning and I didn't get that note. Because they have been known for screwing things up during maintenance frames and a mechanic even 1x "accidentally" shut my connection down by unplugging me in the hub down the street without a reason (and I had to wait 5 days until a technician was available but got refunded for those days), I almost started panic'ing too. I bet you if they would make such misstake causing me to have no connection during a BWE I wouldn't be very friendly when calling them
geez its working today with a new patch..... people worry WAY to much . They do read forums to you know, but it was like after midnight PST so its not like a patch was going to go through until after they got back to work.
Patcher crashed for me yesterday. I restarted my PC today and now it got 100%. Just be patient folks they are working on it.

For me helped deleting whole GW2 install, then downloading new GW2Setup from GW2 website, then going command line in administror mode and doing ' ipconfig --flushdns ' and redownloading whole thing.
Still I annot guarantee that it will help + not everyone have enough bandwidtch to redownload whole thing
Just got a response from ANet, and it turns out that it must be my GPU afterall:
