I was running into errors trying to update my client today, so I tried reinstalling... Unfortunately now I can't even start the actual installation of the game files.

Could be one of two things:

1 - restart you computer, or open activity monitor and look for wot processes and kill them

2 - background files are no longer linked to the game (preferences and junk) i made a utility that helps with that, you can find a download link in my signature (takes you to the forum page on how to get/use it) if you are ok downloading it, just go to the WOT tab and click “reset wrapper” that should do it.

If you don’t want to use my utility, still click the link in my sig, and the page it takes you to will have instructions on how to do it yourself. Use the spoiler buttons to “reveal” the reset wrapper one and it should be in there. Though I’ll admit it’s heen a while since I’ve updated that page so it might be hiding. Either way you’ll need to go into your ~Library/ folder and delet a bunch of preferences and application support stuff.

Or go to the wot -> troubleshooting tab(s) and click “fix shutting down bug” I forgot that was there haha.
