[SOLVED] The .tie installed the wrong client

So, my account is a EU account. A very, very old one, from the beginning of time. And I have no clue as to where my CD-s are.
So I thought I'd just have crossover install the game for me. Downloaded the .tie and installed. --> Got the US version.

So, I know I have to uninstall everything and re-install with the EU client. But how?
Is there a special .tie for this? or... can I manually download it somewhere and have crossover use it?

Edit: SOLVED! Or, partly solved, you need to uninstall everything, and then manually select WoW in the list of programs, and then make sure to change language from "English" to "English (Great Britain)", then you will get the EU client. (I hope)

You may not need to uninstall everything, I'm not sure exactly which files you would remove...

But, to install a different country's version of World of Warcraft...

1. Launch the CrossOver Software Installer
2. Select the desired application
3. in the space to the right of the software selection window, adust "Application Language" to the desired version. English is default but World of Warcraft does have a selection for "English (Great Britain)" which will download the version you were looking for.

The rest is right... you may even be able to do this over your existing bottle and save yourself the re-download.

(and you were posting the 'same' solution as I was typing this... nice!)

Unfortunately this did not work for me. I even deleted all files downloaded the installers directory to be sure. Everytime I try this it wants to install the US client.

Is there no way I can manually download the EU client and run it through the WOW install process?

EDIT: I was able to manually download the file from, then Right click the file, select Run with Crossover (Install) and it then lets you select the correct bottle type to install, World of Warcraft.

It is busy doing the game installation now on the Blizzard launcher.
