Got my kid a new PC and i cant download the game. It gets to around 5%...then starts over. I'll check after a couple of hours, it'll be at 5%...check later and its at 0%. Check over night, its still at 0%.

 

Uninstall and try again and the same thing over and over.

 

Any ideas?

Delete all the old game files in the folder if any downloaded and clear the cache folder at %appdata%\wargamming.net

You can always stop playing while the getting is good.

Perhaps being blocked by a firewall?  Did you allow access on the launcher?

Are you doing a download with WG Game Center or without. I had problems with the Game Center once.

Close the launcher.

Open Task Manager and end all WG and WoT processes.

Find the launcher 'exe' file, right-click on it, and select "Run as Administrator".

 

If you don't have the option to run as an admin, you will need to log off the computer and log back in as an admin.

My friend is also facing the same problem. He is unable to download the game. Before it he connected a canon printer with this computer but the printer was also not working. So he got canon printer support or canon support for fixing this issue. After it now his printer is working well but the game is not downloading till now.

I don't get it. Steam, EpicGames, WT are all doing fine. This just goes to 4%, stops then goes to 0%.

 

Maybe something with ports, but I'm not gonna mess with that. My days of digging that deep to get a game to play are ovvvvvverrrr.*

Did you ever try not using the game center and just use the stand alone WoT launcher/installer?

I've tried. Is there a link? Cause all ive seen installs the game center or launches the game center.

This is WGing forums. 95% of all posts are worthless (including this one). I think you forgot where you were.
