I started updating the game when the patch servers first came up. I got through updating the programs and part way through updating game data. Then I got an update error and the launcher closed. I started the launcher again but now it seems to be stuck on the "Examine Game Data" part. It's been on the "waiting" stage for well over 20 minutes now. It did not take this long when things were working before the update error. Anyone know how to resolve this problem.
I am having same problem. Previously run LOTRO for four years or so on XP and had no problems at all. Just installed windows 7 and reinstalling LOTRO online via Shadows of Angmar CD and am not able to get past Examine Game Data.
read the helps EXTENSIVELY - set up windows firewall as directed
Restarted launcher several times, restarted computer several times
Reinstalled the game itself...SEVERAL times - including the whole re-downloading of the programs several times.
I am at my wits end with this and cant understand why its not installing. It is a fresh windows 7, this is pretty much the first program I have installed on the computer.
If anyone can help me with this to get it past this stage you will be my hero.
