Anyone willing to help me trouble shoot. Followed instructions twice now, deleted everything and reinstalled and get the same error. When I run ashita it says I am missing a msvp1001.dll file. I moved the data folder back to playonline and launched viewer, when I go back to check files FFXI is not under the drop down window anymore to check files again. Any run into this error?

I am having this problem: Error Code: FFXI-3101, transmission error with lobby server. can you please help me??? I installed it properly and got to the character create part and this just shows up. I see the status of the site and servers as online, that's why I don't get it why it says failed to enter lobby server

Sorry guys but i have to ask this...

So i stuck at the Check Files option. so when i have to choose 'Final Fantasy' on drag box, there is no 'Final Fantasy' option, did i do something wrong? I already installed
- Final Fantasy XI, (installed on G:\games\FFXI online\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI)
- Replacing the PXI-FFXI-UpdatePatch Do this befor launching play online.zip on Final Fantasy Folder
- Replacing ROMs_20111214.rar and Sounds_20111214.rar on Final Fantasy folder too
- Starting and updating Playonline and registering it and reach the Check Files,

other things is im using x64 bit windows 7

here is the pic of my problem

If FINAL FANTASY XI doesn't show up on the list, recopy the files from the folder "PXI-FFXI-UpdatePatch Do this befor launching play online" into the PlayOnline folder.
After starting POL again, the option for FFXI will be there.

I am also having the same problem, Apollo. :(

Gotta wait til the Dev fixes some stuff, he said that when SE does major updates, the files get pretty messy.. He also said problems should be fixed in a few days or so. You can find the post on the forum, too.


uh oh...

http://ffxifree.com/forum/showthread.php?497-March-27th-2013-Version-Update

unfortunately there's not really a whole lot you can do. yesterdays seekers of adoulin update changed some stuff that will cause your client to crash.

honestly, the only thing you can do is try to find a full download of the pre-march 27th client

otherwise, you're stuck waiting for me to fix the adoulin issues. working as fast as i can in the few hours i have after work, maybe a few more days

sorry ^^

(This was the dev.)


Just a heads up, big SE updates tend to break the shit out of everything. I haven't had a chance to update my client yet (at work still), but with what I've read about windower plugins breaking, it probably breaks private servers as well.

Don't update your client to March 27, 2013 if you don't have to. If you do, expect crashes and other odd things to happen.

(Dev)


Known issues:

crashing in combat
improper recasts when changing jobs
crash on character creation

(Dev, again.)

Error 3101 usually means the lobby server is down at the moment.

You shouldn't need to enter anything for a gold world pass, Are you entering anything in that section before pressing enter?

no im not i just keep on pressing enter and it gives the error 3322 ive done this another 10 times but i cant get it to work

My only 2 other suggestion, is to follow 100% Directly what is under each step for installation, I am not sure how, but many people have missed the "Secret Ninja" step somewhere along the lines. I believe it is because of the extra information between the steps throwing people off.

My other suggestion is, wait it out. I know it sucks, but the BEST things in life usually come from having patients.

Look forward to seeing you in game soon. Keep trying and don't give up!

just spent the last day downloading and installing this (the ROM update download got corrupted for me, so i had to redownload), and finally thought i was able to play, but after the character creation and world choice, it asks for that gold ticket thing and then gives error 3321 or something like that...

is it really just a waiting game like the above posts state?... i would like more info..

also sorry if this is a bad place to post this, obviously im very new to this forum.

I followed all the steps, downloaded ashita, added username / password in the booter, but everytime I launch to play I get ERROR: :LOGIN: :INIT_TOP_SOCKET (10050) A SOCKET OPERATION ENCOUNTERED A DEAD NETWORK

Anyone have a solution?

Hello everyone,

So I have followed every step to the letter but I get a little error.

So I got the Ashita and I can log onto it just fine with my username and pass and it closes then FFXI program pops up. Then I get an error message saying, "pol.exe has stopped working"

Not sure what I am doing wrong. I noticed everytime I open Ashita I get this window popping up (I'll attach pic) is this normal?

have followed all steps but i encountered a problem and have had a few questions. what i did was:

1. download the torrent with the game
2. installed the game plus al those add ons (Rise of the Zilart, Chains of Promathia etc.) this takes about half an hour?
3. i copy all of the stuff in the patch and paste it inside the FINAL FANTASY XI folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI)
4. i click the playonline button on my desktop
5. i choose the existing member choise and entered hagelslag as user and ABCD1234 as id
6. i select check files, but i cannot select Final fantasy XI its not in the list.

Any idea what the problem is i'm stumped.


I am having the exact same problem. The only two options for file check are the play online viewer and tetra master, there is no option to check ffxi files T_T. Please help, I want to play with you all =D

You are not following the instructions.

You DO NOT log into Playonline!

You choose "Check Files" on the lower left of the POL window. If FFXI does not show up, maybe you updated your POL too far by actually logging in, and my suggestion is to re-download the "Patch" files (not the rom files) and paste it over the top of the folder as instructed.

If your playonline has updated, you might have to reinstall and try again, but I am not sure because I did not log in and update POL.

Literally the only reason you are creating a POL account with that login information is to get Playonline off of your back so you can check the files and download the correct information.

Not log into their actual service.

This is not the problem, no additional steps were taken and instructions were followed to the letter. I am removing and reinstalling everything from scratch, I'll post with quote when I have made my second attempt with details.

I think I have identified the problem, when copying patch files I received a message such as " files failed to overwrite, access denied" I don't understand it, I've tried many unzip programs and locations. Is it possible to get some help with this? I notice after reading this whole thread that many people have the same or similar issues.

Edit: POL was not updated except to get to where you can scan files.

I had this issue but as an IT Technician I didn't think twice about fixing it, and I just assumed most other people would do the same. If you can't overwrite files because it doesn't allow access, do the following:

Locate your PlayOnline folder, usually at "C:\Program Files (x86)\PlayOnline". Don't go into the PO folder, instead right click it and select the "Properties" option. Then, on the top of the properties window, click the "Security" tab. Almost near the bottom of the window should be a button for "Advanced". Click that button.

Now, this will open a completely new window. What you need to do is click the "Change Permissions" button. This will bring up a list, and one of the items in the list should have the permission "Read & execute". This is usually your "Users\Named-PC". Highlight that option and click "Edit". In the new window, simply tick the top box that says "Full control" and click Okay, Apply etc.

This will now allow you to completely access, rewrite and do whatever you want with your PlayOnline folder and everything in it without compromising your security.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. There was no way I would ever have figured that out, and I was unsuccessful at problem solving it by searching online. I am now able to see FFXI on the file check list and have begun repairing files.

Neither the movie-less boot or Ashita will let me log in. The error message in pol.exe is:

Connected to the server.
Login failed.
ERROR: You could not be logged in!
ERROR: Did you enter the right password?

The other booter has a very similar error message.

I'm running it as an administrator, the username and password matches what I wrote in the config file, and I appear to be connecting to the server, so I don't know what could be wrong!

Thanks so much for setting up this guide.

Click here to download the booter (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?kq9k268q4fl7b8f)



Open the WinRAR file you downloaded and extract the contents to PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\
please also remember to download x86 and x64 from here and install both http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679

Run Ashita.exe as an administrator.
Click the updates tab on the launcher and update all files.

Go back to the launcher and click FFXIFREE.COM once, then click edit and change the screen resolution.(Remember to change the resolution in the game config program aswell)
Add your user name and password to boot command.

I have gotten up to the step on repairing the "files" step but am having trouble finding the option to select Final Fantasy option in the check files area. I then followed the direction provided by Vherus but it seems that Windows 8 does not like people and wants me to never be able to change things to be able to play this game. I am attaching some screen shots of what it is I am looking at.

04-13-2013, 10:22 AM
Found the crux of the problem. Step 3 was kind of watered down on what I needed to do and got confused on what needed to be done. To all who may not know make sure you copy and paste the items of PXI-FFXI Update folder into PLayonline/squareenix/Final Fantasy XI folder.

Also, can you try logging in here? Does it let you log in?

I feel frustrated and a little silly at this point. I had to run the file check & repair to get screen shots. Well, this time it went through without an issue... Now, I cannot get logged in via the ffxi-boot because every time I hit enter after my password, the Enter key adds an extra character. Which makes my password incorrect -.-

Yes, you have to edit that string with the username and password you want to use for your account.

When you first load the boot loader, you will have to create a new account on the server using the username and password you used in the configuration.

Hi everyone!

First, thanks for the guide and the opportunity to play FFXI again after all these years <3

I installed everything and with the booter from the torrents it all worked and i was really happy ;)
Now I was told if I use the Ashita Booter I could minimize the Game. This is quite important for me so I can look up infos to quests etc.
So I did everthing that was mentioned in the Guide but at the point where I should run Ashita.exe I receive following error:
I can't post the exact error message because its in German but it basicly says that I should install .Net Framework v4.0.30319
So i tryed and looked this up, but I only found v.4.0. and v4.5. so i instaled v4.0 and it didn't work and then i installed v4.5. but it still doesn't work :( :( :(

Does anyone know how to fix this or if there is any other way to minimize the game?
I use Windows Vista and if you need to know anything else let me know ;)
Thank you in advance for your help!

Lets say my username is 'naveruz' and my password is 'ffxifree'

The string would be --server 85.25.116.212 --user naveruz --pass ffxifree in the "Boot Command" section of the "Edit config" section.

If this is your first time logging into the server, it will say something like the account doesnt exist or its not found. At that point you need to create a new account with the same username and password you used in the Ashita configuration

I have the game up and running on my PC, but my PC is ancient and just barely plays the game. I got a new laptop that should run the game much better, but I am having an issue. Got the game installed and running, have the rez set the same in Ashita and the ffxi config, have updated the drivers (cant install from intel had to use Toshiba's updated video driver) and installed the recommended runtimes.

The problem I am having is one that has been listed here before. Log in to game and everything seems to work except my all pc's & npc's are invisible. The names show, but no toon. I have heard mention that there are issues with Windows 8 and Intel HD Graphics 4000. I am running both Win8 and HD4000. I have not seen a fix listed for the issue.

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. I can still play the game on the desktop (poorly), but I'd like to be able to switch my playing over to the new laptop.

Thank you for your time.

You might not have administrative privileges to install the game, or the download is corrupt. Make sure you are installing the game from an administrative account and if that doesnt work, try rechecking the torrent you downloaded.

I have the game up and running on my PC, but my PC is ancient and just barely plays the game. I got a new laptop that should run the game much better, but I am having an issue. Got the game installed and running, have the rez set the same in Ashita and the ffxi config, have updated the drivers (cant install from intel had to use Toshiba's updated video driver) and installed the recommended runtimes.

The problem I am having is one that has been listed here before. Log in to game and everything seems to work except my all pc's & npc's are invisible. The names show, but no toon.

It's most likely a driver issue. I would start by googling the issue and see what you can find.

Looks like the torrent is incomplete (barely.)

I've checked, forced re-checks and downloads throughout the day (probably 25-30 times) and the .Data.001 file is incomplete. Redownloading doesn't help. It looks like it's just a very small portion of it missing or corrupt.

Edit:

Scratch that. Finally worked after all day of trying. Nice.

Dunno, if I buy new PC just for this game. Should I get Windows 8 or 7? I have been hearing the issues with 8 and FFXI. If the PC has Win8 preinstalled. Is it possible to downgrade to 7 or leave as it is and instruct how to play FFXI on 8 without issues?

I'm trying to download the client on a windows 7 x64 bit and I'm having an issue. I have previously downloaded the game on two other computers (one for myself and one for a RL friend) and I'm trying to help someone else get the game however I cannot get into PoL to patch the game so that the booter will have the path to open XI. He's running on Windows 7 x64 and I vaguely remember reading somewhere about an issue with that however no searches is helping me in this issue. Any help given to get this taken care of would be greatly appreciated.

I'm following the instructions to the "T" on the OP as I did with the two previous installations and both me and my friend are able to get in and play so I know the instructions or ability to follow them aren't an issue. For some reason PoL just continues to crash. I've tried completely uninstalling removing the download for the Abyssea version and then re-downloading and reinstalling both regularly and as admin and then installing PoL/XI/expansions both was as well and running PoL normally, in admin, & in comparability and still not opening the program.

Hello all, I just installed FFXI and want to starting playing again after a few years out. Ive followed the install thread but got to the ffxi-boot section. I got the "FFXI check-unknown" part, updated it.

But, when I put the booter on, I change the .ini file to acceptable user name and password and have changed all the resolutions to the same 1024 x 768. From this, i run the booter in admin mode but unfortunately get "you could not log in; did you get the password right".

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

You need to create an account on the server first. When you try logging in for the first time, it should ask you if you want to create a new account or log in (assuming you are using FFXI-Boot). If you are using ashita and the username doesnt already exist, it will prompt you to create an account.

Its also possible that someone already created an account with the username you are trying to use. I suggest using a different username

What, exactly, are you having issues with?

05-06-2013, 09:52 PM
What, exactly, are you having issues with?

In the torrent that you downloaded, there should be a WinRAR file called ffxi-boot. Extract the contents to PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI
Open the .ini file inside the ffxi-boot folder(couldn't find the .ini file) and add your desired username and password. You can also change the resolution to your liking. You also need to change the resolution in the config program called 'FINAL FANTASY XI Config' located at PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\ToolsUS\
Run ffxi-boot as an administrator (this is important).(what is the password for admin?)

:( I am not very tech savvy.
Thank you for trying to help me.

Depends on what kind of transmission error you got.

Its possible the either A) Someone already has a character by that name or B) You created the character you just need to keep trying to log in with that character. Sometimes it takes several tries to get online for the first time with a new character.

Could be blocked at your router. Perhaps you need to forward the ports for FFXI (no idea what they are) or put your computer in the DMZ. Otherwise it could be a problem with your ISP.

Thats probably because you dont have permissions to write to the FFXI folder.

Make sure you are on an administrator account and have write permissions.

Hello Viperpray,
Im trying to install FFXI in my notebook with Windows 7, but im having some trouble...

First of all;
I did everything exactly as you said, using the booter without cinematics.
The problem is when i finish putting the username and password. Then i go change the resolution in the 'FINAL FANTASY XI Config';

The resolution i use here is 1024x768 and only appears in the first option to change resolution.

And the other thing is: The game don't start after i open the ffxi-boot, my password and Login are correct, that black window stays, but the game don't start...

Hello Viperpray,
Im trying to install FFXI in my notebook with Windows 7, but im having some trouble...

First of all;
I did everything exactly as you said, using the booter without cinematics.
The problem is when i finish putting the username and password. Then i go change the resolution in the 'FINAL FANTASY XI Config';
The resolution i use here is 1024x768 and only appears in the first option to change resolution.

And the other thing is: The game don't start after i open the ffxi-boot, my password and Login are correct, that black window stays, but the game don't start...

So what's your problem with the resolution?

Also, can you take a screenshot of what happens after you type in your username/pass?

It's like i already posted;

The resolution i use here is 1024x768 and only appears in the first option to change resolution.
The other two: Menu resolution and Background resolution only have three or four options like: 512x512, 1024x1024 and 2048x2048 etc.
I can't choose 1024x768 or another regular one.

And the other thing is: The game don't start after i open the ffxi-boot, my password and Login are correct, that black window stays, but the game don't start, don't load...
I Thought maybe because the three resolution options ain't the same perhaps.



I don't know why happen that...I installed and played a few months ago in another computer with Windows xp...
And i did the same procedure in this Notebook with Windows 7... But then when i went to configure the ''Final Fantasy XI Config'' the screen resolution, didn't show the same screen resolution as i write on the ffxi-boot...

nonetheless, i went try to start the game anyway. But did not succeed, the game didn't load, despite the ffxi-boot says i was Log-in..

Dont know why the game didnt start but the background/menu resolution doesnt matter. Increasing these values only makes everything look smoother. The resolution is the only thing you need to worry about.

Try using the Ashita loader (the booter with cutscenes) and report back on what happens.

I was just told that you probably dont have Final Fantasy XI actually updated. Make sure that is up to date (NOT PLAYONLINE) before trying to log in

Razhael
05-13-2013, 08:49 PM
Well my friend;

First of all, i run de Repair tool on Final Fantasy XI, inside Playonline.
No errors found.

About your suggestion on Ashita Booter;
I did not understand how to use, even with the tutorial.
Inside the Ashite zip file i downloaded, there was 4 files;
- Scripts (folder)
- ffxi-boot_mode (folder)
- config (folder)
Ashita.exe

Ok, i extract them all to FFIX folder.
I run Ashita.exe inside the folder, but i did not found any Update option on that program. Thats the picture i got running Ashita.exe as admin;
Then i got an error if i press LAUNCH: Ashita failed to inject into PlayOnline.

http://i44.tinypic.com/2whdzc3.png

I really don`t know what can i do anymore...
Unfortunately i'm almost given up if you can not help me..

Have you installed Visual Studio 2012 Express?

Ashita doesn't work correctly without some stuff from it.

Razhael
05-17-2013, 07:53 PM

Visual Studio Express 2012 for Web or Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop?

Hello i hope you can help me because i have downloaded the Final Fantasy games from piratebay from you guys and after installing them and repairing the files i create a username and use the ABCD1234 for the player id but after i do all that and try logging in it asks for a password to play that username i created in Pol. Can anyone help please? I feel like an idiot asking because it is probably really simple.

Hello everyone. I seem to be running into a problem with the initial installation. I click the FINALFANTASYXIUCAE.exe which kicks off 7zip and the extraction process of the files. It seems to get all the way through FINALFANTASYXIUCAE.Data001 and then the following message pops up:

Main Setup Application Could Not Be Launched

and the installer just quits. So it extracts about 4Gb worth of files and errors out. Any ideas? Perhaps a botched download? If so not sure if it would be Data001 or Data002 that would be damaged. I'm reattempting the download now with Utorrent. About 65% done. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue. Thanks.

Hey, I did all the steps and everything worked out peachy-fine. The only problem is when I created my POL account and went to check the files, the FFXI dropdown wasn't there! There were only the Play Online and Tetra Master options. What should I do?

I have Windows 7.

EDIT: Nevermind. Seems like a file didn't copy over when I told it to, so I copied the files again and now it shows up.

After it has finished, there should be around 700 ish files that need to be 'repaired'. Click on repair files and this should update your client to the latest version.


Is it normal for the amount of files that need repairing to be around 2300 ish instead of 700?

Find the Final Fantasy XI folder that has all the Rom, Sound and everything folders in it and extract the PXI-FFXI to that folder.
It solved my problem after a couple tries.

My pathway was C:\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI

Hello,

I followed all the steps and got it to the point of where it boots into the client.

But I goofed up when I did step six, and copied the entire contents into the FF11 folder, instead of copying the data folder. I am hoping someone can tell me what stuff goes into the data folder so that I could easily transfer the files without having to reinstall everything.

Ok got past the issue that i was having now im stuck on Step 6
After the update has finished, copy the data folder at PlayOnline\SquareEnix\PlayOnlineViewer\data to the Final Fantasy XI directory at PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI.
Afterwards you should have the directory PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\data.

I guess my problem is there is no data file in my PlayOnline\SquareEnix all i have is PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI
is there another video or a dummy guide for this guide =P please and thanks for the help

^^
i think i have gotten past this part.. but i also might of screwed everything all the way up.. I can now launch the game but its not though ashita. Its thru the ffxi-boot. I can create a character up to the point of a gold world pass.
The ashita launcher goes away very fast so i cant read the full message. but i think it says something about not being able to connect.

Ok got past the issue that i was having now im stuck on Step 6
After the update has finished, copy the data folder at PlayOnline\SquareEnix\PlayOnlineViewer\data to the Final Fantasy XI directory at PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI.
Afterwards you should have the directory PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\data.

I guess my problem is there is no data file in my PlayOnline\SquareEnix all i have is PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI
is there another video or a dummy guide for this guide =P please and thanks for the help

How'd you manage to fix the issue with FFXI not being in Check Files? I have that myself and I can't find anything about it to fix it.

I cant remember exactly so im sorry. But i do remember i did extract a folder and it appeared there next time i went to check for repair files. All the directions are there, I had to watch the 2 videos fully without skipping anything. I think there was a part in the 2nd part of is part 1 video that i either overlooked or just plain skipped. also are you clicking on the drop menu for ffxi or are you keeping it on playonline?

the drop menu just has "PlayOnline Viewer" and "Tetra Master". I'll check the video guides and hopefully it'll be there, then ^_^

Can someone help me out? Why is it all of a sudden the background graphics/environment graphics aren't loading properly? I did no real changes to my computer since last night, so there should be no reason for them not loading.

I've been looking for something like this for the longest time. I played FFXI for around 2 years and can't wait to start playing again. Hope to see you all in game soon enough!

You have to download the ffxi patch and put it in your ffxi folder. You get it from the download on the first post.

I have reinstalled this game about 3 times trying to get this to work.

I have followed the directions as closely as I think I could. I'm at the part where i have to do Ashita. I have updated and now I am lost.
I have also downloaded the video version..If I have have to backtrack to do something please let me know.. I am so excited to play this game.. Its been a couple of years and loved it!

I am having an issue in which i have installed the game...(again) It works all fine as it has done on my first installation. Except with this second installation (got new computer) it says that all other expansions are installed except Chains of Promathia. Now has anyone else experienced this?

TL;DR:
Installed the game, installed and plays well, except chains of promathia isn't installed. Help please.


EDIT: I would reinstall the game and cancel all others except CoP but i don't want to mess up the already installed data.

Ok this step "
Adding a Booter to your Client
There are various booters to choose from. This is a booter that does not include the startup cutscene.


Booter WITHOUT startup cutscene




In the torrent that you downloaded, there should be a WinRAR file called ffxi-boot. Extract the contents to PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI
Open the .ini file inside the ffxi-boot folder and add your desired username and password. You can also change the resolution to your liking. You also need to change the resolution in the config program called 'FINAL FANTASY XI Config' located at PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\ToolsUS\
Run ffxi-boot as an administrator (this is important). Type 2 and create your account with the same username and password as you put in the .ini file.
After this type 1 and login with the same info.


(Click here to download the booter if you do not have it already.) (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?g3f3eoy88ysjyfu)






Booter WITH startup cutscene
Click here to download the booter (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?kq9k268q4fl7b8f)



Open the WinRAR file you downloaded and extract the contents to PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\
please also remember to download x86 and x64 from here and install both http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679

do i need to run ashita if i used the one without the cutscene? because i do not see a copy of that file in the one without cutscene...thanks

Edit: I got it myself :3
So Sellier what I did instead was the alternative method to download the files for step 3. I downloaded those, WinRaR still wouldn't let me extract them into the proper folder so I did extract to a test folder on my desktop. Worked perfectly. After that had extracted to the test folder I just moved/replaced the files in the right spot and afterwards FFXI was appearing in the check files section of PoL. Hope this helps :D

You know you suck at a computer when you have been trying to do these things for 3 days now, I just give up. I need help :( I've been trying to install this but i never get the option of the game on the file repairing area. Sadly i don't understand either what to do, i see that people fix it in a way and i dont exactly know what they mean with that. im new with my laptop and she is annoying.

Okay so you're at the point where you are supposed to repair the files right?
1) My WinRaR wasn't letting me extract directly into the folder so I extracted them to a test folder on my desktop.
2) Once they were extracted to that folder I replaced the files in the PlayOnline/SquareEnix/FINAL FANTASY XI folder with those ones. (you can just replace them, don't have to delete the ones already in there. It's just the cursors and everything out of the folders.)
3) Once I did that ran PoL went to the check files and FFXI was there to be repaired.
I hope this helps a bit more.

In case i havent talked to you via phone/txt Drazic:

Here is a previous post just 1 page back Drazic, see if this works for you. Also, get yourself 7-zip from download.com i feel it works better then windows zip or WinRAR, imo.

Here is a link to 7zip search on download.com, they have a 32 bit and a 64 bit:

Yes. i have encounted this due to poor latency and dop outs from an insecure network. in any case this can be resolved by pressing back until you reach the main menu of the pol client. this means it will re-scan all the file's you have just downloaded and make sure it wont re-download them.

From this point you will have to click the drop down box and select the final fantasy xi option and click next it will then give you a prompt about updating and scanning for out of date files. this entire proccess can take a while due to the square enix servers being the only server it streams from.

IF this is not the case then you may have to do a full un-install and then re-install all over again as well as update this is recognised by the program saying it wasnt's to restart. Exit before entering anything else in; such as detail's and then patch the files with the ffxi-patch.rar file located in the download and then enter in your detail's. the rest is in the guide. I am only being this benevolent because i'm re-downloading it as we speak and i don't even need to look at the guide.

hope i helped. peace out.

Hey I was getting this error 1706 thing too, and the way I got around it was clicking the X at the top right of the error message. Before that I was hitting cancel and it stopping me from playing. I hope this works for you too.
