Update 40 featuring the Endless Archive is now available to test on the PTS! You can read the latest patch notes here: https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/categories/pts

Cannot Start Client following latest Patch

I normally use 64-Bit clients but they seem to be broken (both PTS and Live EU).
Using the Elder Scrolls Online Launcher (not something I normally use to access the Game) you press the PLAY button and nothing happens!
This is true for Live EU and PTS.

BTW the download seemed to fail and I had to run a rebuild and that also failed. When I restatred the Launcher it seemed to be OK except that the PLAY Button did nothing at all.

    I had the same issue after patch.

    I downloaded the patch, restarted my computer & started the client as Administrator. Worked for me.

    Since both the download and the repair failed, those need to be sorted first before you can play. Reboot your PC, try the Repair again after it comes up
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.
