World of Warcraft Install on Vista

  • Comments 82

Okay, so I bit the bullet and installed WOW on Vista last night.  I am going to install the patches tonight and see how it works.  If anyone has had issues, lemme know.  BTW, feel free to catch up with me on Eredar (70 NE Priest -- SQLVarChar).  I don't play as often as I used to but still try to get in  a couple of instance runs on weekends.


  • i cant run the stup as the admisnstrator theres no such a option can some one help me im using vista laptop fujitsu siemens

  • The same thing happened to me on my brand new mac (OS X 10.5.7).  I installed it into (your username)/Public/WoW/ and it worked fine.

  • I know now what's wrong! I have Vista too. When i wanted to download WOW on Vista and somewhere (i don't remember where) i seened that WOW can'y be installed on Vista only on Windows... I wanted WOW so much!

  • You CAN ABSOLUTELY run WOW on Vista.  I have been doing it for a couple of years now.  This post is, in fact, about the fact that it can run on Vista.  

    Later on I will have a post, most likely, about running WOW on Win 7 when it ships.

  • When I put in the WoW disk and wait for it to begin installation, nothing comes up. No installation wizard or anything, just the loading circle and maybe the small cd once or twice. I thought it was the CD, so I changed CD's. It worked fine on other disks, just not the WoW that I just bought. I went to Computer and tried right clicking on the drive, and the Computer window that is oped starts to "Not Respond." Once I close all of that, my icons dissappear and I usually have to restart my computer. I have been repeating the process and it still doesn't change. Does anybody know my problem?

  • when i install it it says "Failed to read information from the internet. Please close all applications and try again". ive closed everything and have an internet connection

  • Basically I get to 100% on the installation bar amd then it says failed to install, and give a massive long list.

    Its on a Vista Basic Laptop.

    Can anyone help me with this.
