When I run GW2Setup.exe all I get is a login screen. I get the same result if I run it with "-image"
My GW2 directory contains Gw2Setup.exe and nothing else.

Any ideas?

Gw2Setup.exe downloads Gw2.exe to your temporary files (Win7: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Temp) and asks you for an installation folder. From there, Gw2.exe is moved to that folder and Gw2.dat begins downloading. Note that Gw2Setup is not the launcher. It's just the downloader for the launcher.

It sounds like your Gw2Setup isn't asking you for a directory and is just placing it in your temporary files. Try manually installing it by moving Gw2.exe to where you would like to install Guild Wars 2, then run it.

If you can't manage to find Gw2.exe, you can download just the launcher from http://cloudfront.gu.../client/Gw2.exe

I tried moving Gw2Setup.exe to another drive and running it, and that didn't work. Tried clearing \appdata\temp and that didn't work.

The launcher link appears to be working, as it's downloading now.

Thanks! :)
