How can I re-download gamefiles before resubscribing

I have played a digitally downloaded version of Vanguard after its release, About half a year ago, I uninstalled Vanguard. Im trying to redownload those files again before resubscribing.

But I cant find any info regarding this. I know this is possible with Everquest II and SWG with launchpad, but with Vanguard I keep running into the login screen without any patching or download options.

Does anyone know how to use Launchpad or some other source to redownload Vanguard before subscribing again? I dont want the chance of turning in days of my new subscription for downloading the game.

    From a totally frsh install with a disk bought at release, the patch takes me 2 hours.

    I'm not sure how to download it prior to subscribing :( sorry.

    If you wait a couple of days though, you should be able to log in for free from 12/18/07 through 1/3/08 as they are opening up the game for a couple weeks for previous players to try it again.

    Thanks! These are the files I was looking for. This is how I downloaded the game at release too.
