    The read only attribute on the world of warcraft folder and child objects was causing the problem for me.

    Does anyone have any information about what patch did this? IMO its a horrible idea to have all the the program files be read only...

    Hey there,

    I can't seem to find an answer to this anywhere. It's mentioned in the common problems thread, but I didn't see a solution.

    A couple days ago, i tried to load WAU and the following error occurred.

    WowAceUpdater has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the in convenience... If you were in the middle [blah blah blah]


    Pretty standard error message, first though was to update the program. Went to Add/Remove to attempt to uninstall and I get...

    dfsvc.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.... [cont. standard microsfot error report message]


    Thought this was kind of odd... So I download a new version and tried to do a install that way, same MS error message.

    Has anyone else encountered this, or know of a fix action?

    Thanks
    -Tom
