Maintenance for the week of June 24:
• PC/Mac: No maintenance – June 24

Client stopped working

After the patch today I ran the game client and during the "applying" stage it gave me an error message about files being in use, like the game still running. The game was not running. I tried this three times and got the same result three times. After rebooting, the patch process appeared to complete.

Now when I try to log in it spins away at an endless loading screen until it times out. Both EU and PC servers. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, this did nothing. In fact, the uninstall process didn't even remove the game files, because it didn't reinstall anything. At this point I can't log in at all.

Is there a way to force the client to repair, because I don't see that option anywhere. The only thing I found was the Game Consultant, which I ran and didn't see anything wrong with. I have no idea what to do next other than maybe deleting all of the ESO files in Program Files and trying it again.
