3.3.3 Error: "Download not authorized"

by Infiltrate | 24/03/2010 11:22:00


So, I log in, get re-directed to the patch downloader as usual, the % goes from 0-100% then resets at a random % and continues like that a few times. Then it says the download is ready.

The Blizzard Downloader comes up, the bar races to 87 MB really fast and it stops with the following error message:

"This download is not authorized"

I click on "more" and follow to the troubleshooting site, on the Blizzard Downloader error messages I follow the "Download not authorised" link and it offers the following solution:

"The attempted download is either not an authorized file or is no longer available for download. Please ensure you are using the latest downloader available for this file.

Solution ID: 19592"

Not very useful...how on earth do I ensure I'm using the latest downloader when WoW automatically selects the downloader for me? I really don't have an option here :D

Can anyone offer a solution, or anyone had the same problem?
