ps i uninstalled DDO and reinstalled it and it only worked once and then had the same problem.
Been down since U16 as well
Experiencing same symptoms: successful launch but crashes as character logs in. Did everything listed in the Knowledge Base: checked drivers/settings, installed new DirectX, repaired user preferences file and installed new game (even switched from hi-res to standard download). Even turned off firewall. Nothing seems to work. Fearful that there are only a handful of us experiencing this problem and that no one is coming to our rescue.
Update 1: Per advise from My2Cents, I defraged the drive (only 2 frag'd files) and reset my router. Still crashing.
Update 2: Performed multiple clean uninstalls and reinstalls. Even wiped hard drive of everything except OS and DDO. Still crashing.
No more dndclient.exe errors
Per the Knowledge Base for a Clean Boot of Windows, I was able to isolate my problem to the NVIDIA firewall, which I didn't realize was active. I originally thought that my firewall troubleshooting ended with an examination of the Windows firewall. By turning off NVIDIA's ForceWare Intelligent Application Manager (IAM), I am now able to log into the game fully. If you are experiencing dndclient.exe errors and if you are using NVIDIA devices, then consider disabling or deleting IAM. Good luck all!
