If you are getting Fatal Error 6 in the launcher, please try the troubleshooting steps listed below.
REPAIR THE ESO LAUNCHER
Open The Elder Scrolls Online Launcher by right-clicking on the icon on the desktop and selecting Run as Administrator.
Wait for the launcher to open completely.
If multiple ESO clients are installed and available through the launcher, make sure you have the correct version highlighted by clicking on it once.
Open the Game Options dropdown menu and click on the option for Repair.
Allow the launcher to examine all the files for the game. This may take some time.
If any files are found to have problems, the launcher will re-download those files.
DELETE THE ESO LAUNCHER FOLDER
PC: Go to the Launcher folder and delete it.
You can find this by default at C:\Program Files (x86)\Zenimax Online\Launcher.
DOWNLOAD NEW ESO LAUNCHER
Once you have deleted the folder, download the ESO Launcher from your account management page here to reinstall it. You can do this by logging in to your account on our website and clicking the Download Game button on the page for your appropriate platform.
If you play on Steam, download a new copy of the game through Steam.
I'm getting this after today's patch but I have no repair option under game options on the launcher. I've deleted the launcher folder and redownloaded, twice. Still no joy. I'm still crashing after pushing play and not making it to the log in screen. Every time the crash report tells me its fatal error 6. The tech support offered here is not working for me.
@ZOS_BillE i am having this same issues. it kind of gets stuck on an infinite loops of repairing. while patching i got unknown error several times. i finally got in and got Fatal error 6 on crash report on start up. currently repairing for the billionth time. after verifying it goes into download and seems to be downloading the entire game repeatably. I have done the steps above several times. Please advise.
