Hey everybody!
I was trying to download GW2 whole night. There weren't any "serious problems" or other errors. The problem is that downloader shows GW2 is already downloaded in 100%. This is very strange, because it went  from 86% to 100% immediately. I can't even instal it! Please help me with that, because I haven't found anything like this on google :(

First of all you have the game installed as soon as the download is finished. There are going to be 3 files in your directory called:
Gw2.exe
Gw2.dat
Gw2.tmp
The game itself doesn't need to be installed, since all the data required will be inside Gw2.dat.

If you have issues running the installer you could try and use the old launcher:
Create a link to your Gw2.exe.
Right-click the newly created link and select properties.
At the end of the path add -useoldlauncher
The path for the link should look similiar to this (depending on where you have the gw2.exe):
"C:\Program Files\Guild Wars 2\Gw2.exe" -useoldlauncher
Make sure the switch is outside of the quotation marks or the link will not work.


If you double click this link now, you should get the old style launcher

It would be good to check that your firewall is allowing connections and that your dont have a program such as peer blocker running in the background. If that isnt the case you can try using command line arguments to force the image.
Try using the ~image command by following the directions from this site here : http://wiki.guildwar..._line_arguments

It will reset to 0 but it picks up where it left off....you aren't being put back to the start each time....just keep going.
Edit: a more accurate counter is the number of files you have left. that should continue to drop.

Is the GW2.dat file ~4GB in size?  If so, you probably have a FAT32 file system on the drive, and you will need to convert it to NTFS.  FAT32 has a maximum file size of 4GB.
