Wow has Error 2 – “X could not be opened, because an error 2 occurred”

Step 1. First look at the full message, like so:

The file “Files\Data\Interface\Cinematics\FILENAME” in archive…..

Step 2. Verify that you have deleted all the previous WoW install files, such the one listed in the error. You can even do a broad windows search for any file with “wow” in the title.

Step 3. Delete all the files in question. You may want to verify that files you delete are actually WoW files. You can even let them in your recycle bin and test it until it runs or you are out of wow files.

If you still have problems…

Step 4. Verify that you are using a complete WoW Install Disc Set rather than a hybrid of multiple copies as they are not interchangeable. You can find this out by going to my computer -> opening the cd-rom and viewing the creation dates. If the disks match you are fine, otherwise you may have two different disc versions.

If you do have a game disk that needs to be replaced, are missing your authentication key, need a new manual, etc. then go here to order it, or go here to download Wow 4.0 via the installer.


Installation Error 5, Error 8, Error 38 “Unable to read file”

We have listed an order of steps to take. You should try re-running the install after taking each step.

Step 1. Clean your disk, remove scratches… try a new disc. Clean your disc drive. Try installing the game by downloading the install.
Step 2. If that does not work, conduct a virus/spyware scan, as well as run scandisk. This can be done by going to My Computer -> Right clicking the drive in question -> Properties -> Tools -> Error-Checking -> Check both boxes and hit Check now and follow the directions provided.
Step 3. If you have your computer overclocked, then try putting it back to default settings.
Step 4. Verify that your memory is running at the correct voltage. Many computers (especially ones built by users) have their bios auto-detect the voltage. This can create issues for the user. We recommend that you manually set your voltage at the level recommended by the memory manufacturer. Be sure to check with your motherboard manufacturer as well.
Step 5. Run a RAM testing tool Blizzard recommends using the Microsoft Memory testing tool here. Be sure to run the extended test by pressing T while the Windows Memory Diagnostic is running.

We at geekmontage recommend using Memtest86. You can download Memtest86 here. Both of these programs are free of course. Run either program for at least two hours.

Step 6. Verify that your memory is running at the correct voltage. Many computers (especially ones built by users) have their bios auto-detect the voltage. This can create issues for the user. We recommend that you manually set your voltage at the level recommended by the memory manufacturer. Be sure to check with your motherboard manufacturer as well.

If your memory does turn out to be faulty, you can try:
1. Switching the slots your memory is installed in
2. Taking out one stick at a time or sets of two until you figure out which stick is bad.
3. Seeking additional assistance
4. Getting new RAM, or Motherboard. (last resort)


Error 121 0×8510079 Version Mismatch WoW.exe or “Wrong number of columns”

Blizzard claims that most users will get this error when installing an old expansion on top of Wow 4.0 and/or using system restore. This is because older gamer files will get into the World of Warcraft folder. Here are some solutions that Blizzard has recommended.

Step 1. Run the world of warcraft repair tool. You can find this by going to your World of Warcraft folder. For me it is located “C:\Users\Public\Games”. It can vary depending on the user. When you reach the folder run “repair.exe” and follow the instructions that you will be provided. Blizzard admits to it having a low but still existant success rate for this issue. Good luck.
Step 2. Remove and reinstall World of Warcraft by using the disc or the 4.0 installer.

If you still have issues then it would be best for you to post it on the forum at Blizzard and in the comments section below so you can receive support.
