Installer is broken. File downloads cycle endlessly due to wrong size checks

Tried to install the game.
Fresh install.
Installer just repeatedly downloads client_sound.dat
After finalizing step just repeats on endless cycle.
Installer is run as administrator. IUnstallation location is c:/Games
No antivirus or windows security enabled.

Things ive tried:
Uninstall, reinstall
Delete all DDO folders
Repair button in launcher.
All leads to the same issue of endless cycle of client_sound.dat download error.

Is there a location one could download just the full gvame without the installer?

Never ran into that specific file but for similar issues I run the DDO launcher as admin.
This seems to work, at least for me. Sometime is seems like a file get a lock on it.
Once that fixes the issue I can run as normal and things seem to work as they should.

I do not know of anyway to download the fully updated client

I did run as administrator. I slapped a file watch script on and launcher downloads partials into downloading folder. After that it probably copies/unpacks file into game folder. It gets created and then immediatly deleted again. No idea if their hash checker fails or its some other issue. Tried removing files again and now it just fails in the smae way with another .dat file. Tried interrpting by deleting partials and then rerunning installer which got through one dat but not the other. Namely client_anim.dat Literally the solution would be if they hosted a torrent or full game version. Looks like i cant play this game :(

Check your folder permissions for write access?
Your amount of Free Space remaining?
Try installing it somewhere else? Different drive or partition?

Or maybe check My Documents\Dungeons and Dragons Online\ for an errant UserPreference or corrupted cache? Maybe just move all the contents of that directory somewhere else temporarily.
