Launcher exe is up for 10 minutes and people start to jump to conclusions.

How much is the pre order, their website is really lagged up atm...
I dont know if this is the case, but i read about some games not being compatible with W8 or crashing a lot... maybe, MAYBE the first thing on beta is showing this problem.

I have not much of a clue about programming, but since it is a beta build it might even be that the launcher is trying to get a connection right when you start it. Right now the flood gates are open with thousands trying to login/patch.
I'd just wait an hour or so and give it another try.

Will try that! I am just really excited waited for this for years
Not to piss on your bonfires, but I have windows 8 and it doesnt work, because I have a windows 7 vmware machine also running and ive installed it on there fine and it's patching.
so yeah windows 8 users unless you have a virtual machine handy or can duel boot will be highly unlikely that your playing come monday
Just to add to this for the nay sayers, the error being thrown is
The thread 0x2568 has exited with code 0 (0x0).Unhandled exception at 0x0131970F in DFUWLobby.exe: 0xC000041D: An unhandled exception was encountered during a user callback.
Win 8 works like a dream.

I did that, it doesn't work.
The window opens up and then it crashes.
Could you please elaborate on what you've done to make this work?

This error doesn't feel like a network error. It feels more like something local. Network errors due to congestion would take much longer - up to a minute to time out. This happens immediately.
"you're all so pittiful, this is sad"
windows 8: it's natural because it's a new OS. its going to have problems.
go back through every mmo released (in the past 6 months) and read the beta/launch threads and it will read like this one (with more rage).
calm yourselves, eat some cake. it will sort itself out
A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.
I cant even login to the account page or rather new account page now, as it says "your username can not contain those characters blah blah.." well my login usernam has an underscore from last web page account stuff was all ok but seems now its not allowed lol?
Or is it a case of just grabbing the client and logging in with your old purchased details?
