How to Fix World of Tanks Update/Install Error Problems
Having a update and/or installation error problem with the game World of Tanks?
Then you've come to the right place, because on this page I will show you step by step how to fix the problem.
The first time I installed the game World of Tanks and downloaded a big update it suddenly stopped at 99%.
And I got the error message:
Unable to download updates via HTTP.
The application cannot continue.
For details, see log file
I got a little bit irritated because it took a long time to download this WOF update (my internet speed isn't that fast).
And I was just starting with the game.
Actually, I didn't even play the game yet.
So I began WOF with a bad start and experience.
I didn't gave up on World of Tanks yet.
So, I searched on the internet and found a solution that solved this problem.
And on this page I will share this solution with you.
How to Solve the World of Tanks Update/Install Critical Error
The first thing you should try is to just click on the retry button.
If that doesn't work then follow the next steps:
For this solution you need the torrent application uTorrent (it's free).
This program is made for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
You can download uTorrent here.
1 Go to the World of Tanks updates directory on your computer.
Example location: This PC > Local Disk(C:) > Games > World_of_Tanks > Updates.
Example location: My Computer > Local Disk(C:) > World_of_Tanks > Updates.
Inside this folder you will see a patch file and a torrent file.
Or in my case I saw multiple patch and torrent files.
2 Double-click on the torrent file, to start downloading the patch.
The torrent files will have the green uTorrent icon.
3 When uTorrent accepts the torrent file and starts downloading the file, you can stop the download (don't delete the patch file from uTorrent).
To stop the download you need to right-click on the file and choose "Stop".
4 Go back to the World of Tanks updates directory.
5 Copy the patch file from the World of Tanks updates folder into the uTorrent downloads folder (location where uTorrent saves downloads).
Replace the place holder file that is there.
6 Go to uTorrent.
7 Right-click on the patch file (that you were downloading) and choose "Force Re-Check".
This will check if all the pieces of the patch file are complete.
If you're a missing piece(s), start the download to get the missing piece(s).
8 Do a re-check when the patch file is complete (just to be sure).
Right-click on the patch file and choose "Force Re-Check".
9 If the patch file(s) is good and complete, you copy the file(s) from the downloads folder back to the World of Tanks updates folder.
Replacing the old file(s).
10 Click on the retry button of World of Tanks and hopefully it will finish the update(s).
This solution solved my WOF update problem and hopefully yours also.
