Are you experiencing difficulties updating your Elder Scrolls Online game? Here’s a quick fix to get you back on track!
Troubleshooting ESO Launcher Updates
If your Elder Scrolls Online launcher is stuck during an update, there are a few things you can try. First, try restarting your computer and running the launcher again. If that doesn’t work, check the patch notes to make sure there isn’t a known issue with the update.
If the issue persists, try clearing the cache by going to “Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live” and deleting the “ShaderCache.cooked” and “ShaderCacheIndex.cooked” files.
You can also try running the launcher as an administrator or disabling any antivirus or firewall software temporarily.
If none of these solutions work, try repairing the game files by clicking the gear icon on the launcher and selecting “Repair”.
If you’re still having trouble, reach out to the ESO support team for assistance.
Firewall and Proxy Server Workarounds
If you’re experiencing issues updating Elder Scrolls Online due to a firewall or proxy server, there are a few workarounds you can try. First, try disabling your firewall temporarily to see if that resolves the issue. If that doesn’t work, try adding an exception for the ESO launcher in your firewall settings.
If you’re using a proxy server, try adding the proxy server information to the launcher’s settings. Go to the launcher settings, navigate to the “Proxy” tab, and enter the required information.
If you’re still having issues, try using a VPN (virtual private network) to bypass any firewall or proxy server restrictions. Additionally, make sure you have the latest version of the ESO launcher and check for any available patches or updates. Hopefully, these workarounds will help you get past any updating issues so you can enjoy the latest bug fixes, Alliance War updates, and Tamriel Unlimited content.
Repairing Corrupted Program Data
If you’re experiencing issues with Elder Scrolls Online updating stuck, it may be due to corrupted program data. To fix this, try repairing the data by following these steps:
1. Close the ESO launcher and any related processes.
2. Navigate to the game installation folder.
3. Locate the game executable file (usually named eso.exe or eso64.exe) and right-click on it.
4. Select “Properties” from the context menu.
5. Click on the “Compatibility” tab.
6. Check the box next to “Run this program as an administrator”.
7. Click “Apply” and then “OK”.
8. Restart the ESO launcher and try updating again.
If this doesn’t work, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the game. Make sure to check for any patch notes or bug fixes before updating. ESO offers DLC and Tamriel Unlimited options on PS4, Steam and other platforms.
Updating Drivers for ESO Launcher
To fix ESO Launcher update issues, try updating your drivers. First, check if your graphics card driver needs updating. Go to the manufacturer’s website and download the latest version. You should also update your sound card and network drivers. If you’re on PS4, make sure your console software is up to date. Once you’ve updated your drivers, try launching ESO again. If it’s still stuck on the loading screen, try restarting your computer or console. If that doesn’t work, try running the ESO patcher as an administrator. If you’re still having issues, contact Bethesda support for further assistance. Make sure to keep your game and DLCs up to date to avoid future issues.
