WoW issues addons
hello, i recently installed WoW using crossover and everything ran perfectly, until i had to patch past version 2.0 of WoW whihc i bypassed by running he patches with wine instead of crossover. finally got up to date and ran wow and it ran perfectly. So i closed it and threw in my addons folder. start it up again, it locks up my system not even showing the load screen. so i got rid of my addons worked good again, then reloaded wow crashed again because of blizzard addons in the folder. i was wondering if anyone knew how to fix his error besides deleting the addons folder every loadup.

Sounds to me like your install is a bit corrupted. The updates should install just fine in CrossOver. They always have for me anyway. It would be worth re-installing from scratch. Save the patch installers first, they will be in your WoW installation dir.
Thanks for the reply, but i don't think it is a corrupt installation, because it did the same thing when i installed wow with wine and it ran fine up until the latest patch. i am using installer discs to install and not the online d/led file if that would make a difference. and the reason i had to use wine to update anything past 2.x.x was because i was getting the waiting to close all files error, and changing to NT 4.0 through cx didnt work but worked in wine. also i copied over my linux wow folder to my windows partition and everything ran perfectly in windows, which leads me to believe it wasn't corrupt.
