Hi, I'm running GW2 on Windows 8 on a MacBook Pro using Bootcamp.  Happy to say the game installed OK, and I was able to play it no problem.  It shut down OK without crashing, too.  Now, though, when I launch GW2, the entire .dat file (140,000+ files) starts to download again, even though I already have it and, as far as I can tell, it isn't corrupted. I'm running the game as an administrator.  I'm sure if I let the download run its course it would start up OK, but I don't want to have to wait five hours AND download 15GB of data every time I play.  Any clues as to why it should be doing this?  Anything I can do to prevent it from happening?  Thanks all.

Try running it as an administrator and let it finish. I moved it to another drive to avoid this.
