Server Busy - June 4th 2009, 08:42 PM

Ok, two days ago I was annoyed at the slowness of the Blizzard Downloader so I decided to download the latest patch from one of the mirrors listed. Everything looked fine, game updated, was going smoothly until I actually tried to run the game. Before my screen turns black like it usually does, I get an error message saying: "The application failed to initialize (0xc000006). Click 'ok' to close the application".

So I ran a malware scan and the error stopped, but a new one showed up. When I clicked on play on the Launcher, I got a "Server Busy" box with three buttons: "Switch to, Retry, and Cancel". Cancel is greyed out. They want me to switch to the busy program and correct the error but when I click "Switch to" all it does is open the Start menu. I've been running scans of all different sorts. I think my virus protection is out of date. Could that be the problem?

PS - I posted this in Blizz's Technical Support forum but they said it was a general Windows error and beyond their scope so I figured why not ask as many people as I can.

I'm assuming you're talking about WoW?

I never used to DL the patch from the Blizz downloader. For some reason, it always messed things up and took forever anyway, so I got fed up with it. I've had a similar thing happen to me dealing with that, and it was my virus protection not allowing the new patch. It was weird. My boyfriend at the time fixed it for me, but I'm not sure how he did it. You could always go to the website and see if anyone else is having the same problem. Oorrrrr, I could be no help to you at all. lol :]

EDIT: Also, Blizz' technical support team sucks... Or at least they never helped me with any errors I ever had while playing WoW.
