The new launcher gets a big thumbs down from me. Its new design creates new temporary directories on each load and just provides endless amounts of firewall approvals.Gala Net Rappelz Epic3 is an Epic Fail!

I typically launch the Launcher from inside Steam so others can see when I'm playing WoW. Doing that in the post-3.0.8 causes Launcher to launch copies of itself indefinitely without ever loading. Sounds like it's probably related to the creation of temp directories. Any ideas on how to get around it?

I'm rather annoyed with the constant approval notices, as well, but mine are from Norton Anti-Virus and even though I put on the option of *Always Allow*, it still doesn't change anything.

@Karzon: A Blue post suggests that you skip the new launcher and just have a shortcut to WoW.exe instead.http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=14498230357&pageNo=1&sid=1#1
