Finally worked on my second run through the entire process . . . . I wish they'd just switch back to the old launcher. Much more simple in my book. Stop trying to copy other companies CCP and just use what works.

1. Manual Patch (run the evefile.exe from bin folder, (make sure its the one in C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE\bin)

2. Let it do its thing updating. when the pop up launcher restarts CLOSE IT ASAP. and run repair tool located in C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE.

3. when the repair tool completely finishes (was approximately 3 minutes of fixing) reopen the evefile.exe located in C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE\bin

4. Login like normal.


EDIT: if still having issues, try running the .exe file as admin, and it will apparently patch as well

eve then worked for me (direct evefile.exe from bin folder) .

Excellent.. this seems to be working for me... *crosses fingers*

And... Nothing... What?

Sorry bro, im definitely online now. not sure what may have been done different at any point.

i did try a few methods a few times, somthing got the kajiger

Me too.

I did the manual patch as above, ran the repair tool (which failed) then just ran the launcher using my normal task bar EVE icon. The launcher validated the client (which took a couple of minutes) and then the patch was successfully applied.

+1 worked

Was broken here too - but Raimundo Desilu advise really made my evening. Cool

My solution:
After deactivating the option in the launcher to delete used patches, I had to run the EXE file directly to initiate the patch. Now it was finished correctly.

I also had my firewall (Win7 Firewall Control) switched off during patch process, because I often had issues with that while patching directly from EXE and not from the launcher.

It works for me too!!

Looks like backend hardware has become less reliable since... huh... DUST integration?

We're currently experiencing an issue with the Level3 caching server that is causing the issue. We're looking in to see if it can be resolved and should hopefully have more news very soon.

Oh my CCP this problem has been since DT and because we all pay for playing EVE and this problem has been ongoing for more than 12 hours.

Is CCP going to reimburse us for something which was out of the player control.

I guess not CCP will not reimburse us for hardware failure of there Level 3 caching server.

CCP need to sort the Hamsters out, or sack them because they are getting lazy.

And employ new Hamsters that can get the job done LOL .

Is that wonky server causing problems again? Cause after multiple patching attempts I can't get the launcher to get out of the way of itself.

Help you out here:

Remove the launcher - less angry posts to hide.

Launching ExeFile.exe in BIN folder causes "Incompat version" error, starts update download. Download completes, launcher opens for 10 seconds, then closes. Re-launch ExeFile loops back to beginning again. I've done this three times already, same result. Launcher won't patch, ExeFile won't run. Now the update seems to be in a download/install loop.

Same problem here.

Re-installed eve 3 times now past the last patch from 11th. Every time a patch is inserted (which is nearly every day), the patching launcher dies, running eve from bin/exefile does´nt work, and repairtool gets stuck at some point.

I have the feeling that my +4 year career in eve is over soon.
