I was lucky enough to get a beta key this morning and lucky again to get it registered this afternoon. I downloaded the client without issue, but when I launch by double clicking the icon my desk top it says,
"Preparing to download..." and in the upper left corner "Boot Version: 2010.06.25.2002"
I left it like that for 4 hours now and was really hoping it would have moved by now. I couldn't find a tech forum for FFXIV, but if this is not the prper place for a question like this I'll be very happy to delete it. Any help much appreciated! My PC skills are not very advanced, but I don't usually get stuck on something so easy as double clicking!
