WOW start up problems
Since the last update I've been having problems loading WOW. After I hit play nothing happens. No error message appears, the system doen't crash it's just WOW doesn't load. I see that WOW launcher continues to operate. So far the only remedy is to use the repair kit to fix this proble.

Anyone else having a similar issue?

have you tried opening the wow.exe and bypassing the launcher? if it still loads that way your problem is somewhere in the launcher.

I vaguely remember someone saying that they had this problem and it was one of the addons they were running.

Try deleting them all and see if you can log on, then re-download and install one at a time and maybe you will find the issue.

Can't think of any other solutions though :(

I know I had one issue where wow would crash every time I logged off a character. It turned out to be either Recount or AtlasLoot. Both were updated quite quickly and the issue has gone.
Not had any trouble logging in though.

Try deleting your addons as Aph said. Or better just cut and paste the addon folder somewhere safe and try that. If it works, you know its an addon. If it doesn't, then you have your addons all safe to put back in.

I have the same issue, just go into your wow folder and open the .exe file to launch the game, should work if u do that =)

Only worry I have with that as a long term approach is that the launcher scans for keyloggers iirc.
