Hi all
I've tried to install via the launcher many times and get the same message every time saying

"critical error
failed to install updates
the application cannot continue
for details, see log file"

NEVER had this before...no idea about log files either.

ALSO downloaded patch file via 8.3 update page. When i try to install it using the download it says
"patch is not appropriate to existing version. Installation impossible."

I have no idea what the hell is going on...HELP PLEASE!
Regards
Len

You will have to re-download the game, and the install the patch again, try using the link for the patch that flowerhorn provided instead of the launcher guys!

Just re-downloaded the whole game hope this one will work. Have already tried flowerhorn's advise sadly it didn't work for me.

try launching the WorldOfTanks.exe from the main folder after you patched it

Thanks. So, the launcher trashes the whole game? Nice.

Thanks Skitz, thried downloading from site rather than launcher which is screwed. Thats what makes the second error. Deleting and re-installing...damn. Hope you're well mate. Thanks all for the advice.

I had this error with WoWP. After restarting my computer it fixed itself. No idea why though!

Try deleting the files in C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\Updates before trying again though, your install mustve been corrupted/derped.
