    Default unknown error: 0xffffffff80043038

    Game wont start after downloading today's update. Launcher indicates "done applying 6 patches" then freezes with the error code listed above. Any work-arounds?

    Yeah I get a similar problem, usually with a different number of applied patches. Also get an E_FAIL unknown error. Anyone have any ideas, I have tried both 32 and 64 bit client.

    After trying about 20 times it did make it through. Like I said it would throw an error at different applied patches and finally made it through.

    Surely there can't be only a couple of us with this issue?

    DBX and started the both clients at once like I usually do, but never had an issue before with updates.

    Letting it go on auto-retry (up to about 8 tries) and see what happens .. I alternate between unknown error 0xffffffff80043038

    and E_FAIL

    EDIT - Finally worked after about 10 minutes of re-trying.

    Default Unknown error problems

    This error problem is a major pain. I have tried waiting to see if it goes thru. I am starting with a new computer and loading DDO through steam for the first time. I have tried updating computer that my wife has been playing on for years and are both having the same issues. Is there anyone with any ideas that might work that I can try? Have the developers looked in to this and come up with a solution That I have not found yet? It is getting to the point that being a vip is worthless if I cannot play.
