I haven't played for a couple weeks, but today I downloaded the newest patch and every time it makes it to the install process, it gives me "An update error has occurred. Error 20524". Has anyone else had this problem?

I would try deleting that patch and redownloading it. Did you use the official downloader or a torrent? If a torrent, could you have installed the downloaded patch into the wrong directory?

Generally I use a torrent, but this was a small update so I did the official downloader. I don't think it would have made it to the install process if it was in the wrong directory though.

I tried deleting and downloading again, but the same error. Now I'm trying as a torrent but not finding any seeds.

I'm receiving this same error code ever since the Dec. 15 update arrived. I've tried just about everything - re-downloading the patch from several different sources (updater, external torrent, hosted file links), changed around my sound settings as Lodestone suggested, updated my video card drivers.. nothing seems to work.

I did some digging around and this error's been linked in the past to using third-party hardware mouse fixes. I won't be able to try it til I get home, but I wonder if maybe switching to software mouse mode in the XIV config utility will make any difference? Give it a try and let me know what happens.
