I have attempted to start the game twice with no success the first time. A lengthy error box came up which would not let me copy to paste here. I uninstalled the manager and revalidated and the game worked. I bought a lesser heart and started to reincarnate my 10 bard/2 rogue. The ship was very laggy but when I went to level up, the first time i talked it said i had xp to level. It then gave me the skills page to set my skills, did that, then it asked if I stayed on the path or customized. I had customized my original characyter but this time i was taking the warchanter path. When I clicked on "stayed on my path" I got a crash to desktop, no errors or warnings, and the launcher/DLM is back to the error box where I have to uninstall/validate it to get it working. I am running Vista. The regular client runs fine on this machine although i start it without the download manager.

More info:

The start error waas due to an incomplete turbineservices.config file.

The file contained:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
<appSettings>
<!-- TDM PublicPreview Environment -->
<add key="TDM.FranchiseName" value="LAMANNIA" />
<add key="TDM.InstallGuid" value="b35d407a-d5d8-4a2e-91bf-1d95b9f3f590" />
<add key="TDM.InstallIdentifier" value="PublicPreview" />
</appSettings>
</conf

And i had to complete the </configuration> at the end and the game starts.

The windows error box that comes up sfter the crash states:

Ok, if you stray off the exact path you took when leveling up the game crashes. That's the problem. Shouldn't the NPC just say I can't do that and not have the game crash?

Each time I exit the turbine Download manager the turbineservices.config file gets overwritten with the incomplete version mentioned above. I have to manually edit it each time i want to run the game.
