Can you get into the Client long enough to go to Help -> Submit a Support Ticket and describe the problem? :)
I am unable to. I at first had the .net error (resolved) but now when I try to install I receive an error after 3mb of the ~7mb file is downloaded that says
ERROR SUMMARY Below is a summary of the errors, details of these errors are listed later in the log. * Activation of http://clientupdate.curse.com/CurseClient.application resulted in exception. Following failure messages were detected: + Exception occurred loading manifest from file CurseClient.exe: the manifest may not be valid or the file could not be opened. + File CurseClient.exe is not a valid Portable Executable (PE) file. + Could not find file 'C:\Users\Matt\AppData\Local\Temp\Deployment\BBWYMZHN.CA9\THXYQ6O1.5Y2\CurseClient.exe'.
This is not alarming my AV program at all. Same message if AV is disabeld.

I am getting same instal error . i think the client has been corrupted IN CURSES SERVER how about putting out a stand alone installer or re write curse to work with .net 4 instead of 3.5 its making me ANGRY THAT YOU THINK ITS A PROBLEM ON OUR END HOW CAN THAT BE WITH ALL THE FRESH INSTALLS?
The Curse Client is not corrupted on our servers (Just verified this myself). The installer we use is robust and allows us to deliver updates seamlessly to millions of users everyday. However, configuration problems on your computer cause the install to fail - It isn't something we can fix from our end, sadly. The problem isn't with .Net 4 or 3.5 (.Net 4 contains all of the code found in .Net 3.5 so if youh ave version 4 installed, you have 3.5, 3, and 2 installed as well).
We have millions of users using the Curse Client right now, with only a few dozen errors. The best we can do is provide guides on possible solutions. Curse is always looking to improve the user experience we offer to gamers, and as we move forward we may use other methods to install the Curse Client.
Twinkielock - If I remember correctly, you are using TrendMicro, correct? We've been able to work together to resolve the issue of it marking the Client as a false positive. Could you please update your antivirus and see if this fixes the issue?
Using this tool I verified that .net 3.5 SP1 is installed correctly. As far as I can determine I've verified the functionality of everything short of the client. Is there any sort of diagnostic tool for that which might be able to determine what's causing it to be unable to load the libraries it needs to function?
I was unable to locate a CurseClient.log file which could have helped, I assume the program is crashing before it can even begin this file.
