CAS System error

11 posts in this topic

So I get this CAS system error whenever I try to open wow.exe and my Avast antivirus(which is a very good antivirus) pops up and says that the ashran URL has a virus.

I made a thread about this on the technical support section and I didn't get any answer and many other people have the same issue.

So what am I supposed to do, exactly? Even if I turn off my antivirus I'll probably have the error and I don't want to constantly fuck my PC's security whenever I play wow(which is a lot).

This didn't happen to anyone a few weeks ago, so I think something's up with that ashran URL where the game and shit gets downloaded from.

Hello @Seraphierre , you should remove WoW.exe & WoW-64.exe from your World of Warcraft folder and run again Firestorm Launcher to download new executables. I had same problem with Avast which pop-up 6 problems with URL:Mal(ware). After re-download I can normally play WoW: Warlords of Draenor on Grommash.

Hello,

Is there news on how to fix this particular error?

 

I have tried to re-install the whole game from scratch? ( regular wow by blizz is working fine )

I have tried to play on other servers and I get the same exact error when installing those.

Uninstall Firestorm official launcher and re-Install it again. Open the Firestorm official launcher, choose the expansion and locate the game, select “Settings”, then “Analyze and repair”, wait for the repairing and click on “Play” button.

If the problem is not solved yet, try creating an other user account(With administrator rights) in your computer and run the game in your new user account you made.
