please don't delete threads after people answer you elsewhere. if it needed to be moved i would have moved it. :(

your issue is a general plugin/launcher/updater question and isn't an mq2war specific question which is why i didn't move your post here.

gonna move your post back to the thread where you were asking for help.

as far as your specifics go - it *might* not be antivirus or windows defender related, but most often is.

do you have slow internet or intermittent internet issues? because it can be those as well.

also guessing cause you tagged me you do want my help? just full disclosure between you and that other dude today my patience for being talked down to is pretty thin, so if we can just stay on topic and help get your issue resolved we'll both be happy lads


that error is saying there is an issue accessing that file which can mean things like the following:
antivirus
windows defender
any file syncing - like one drive
anything that scans your files
intermittent internet connection
slow internet downloading

best bet is to:
check av
check defender
check file syncing
if you have any quarantined files, unquarantine them, then consider whitelisting your mq/eq/rg folders
reboot
re-run the launcher
cross your fingers

if everything in your plugin tab is green, then you are updated and good to go

many times that file lock hiccup will sort itself out - especially if it was one of the things i mentioned above - could have also just been a computer resource hiccup
