Hi guys,

I was wondering if it was possible to just copy/paste the GW2 folder from one computer to my laptop without any issues. I just don't feel like downloading the file all over again.

If this isn't possible what are other options?

I don't know if it will work with Guild Wars 2, but definitely works with World of Warcraft.

Just try it... It worked for GW1. The game doesn't need to be installed. Just copy the files and run it.

It works (just did a reinstallation of windows and just ran the old install from another drive and was away)

yes it works fine if you just copy the GW2 folder (part of the reason I see Anet as a reasonable and flexible developer)

The main thing is GW2.exe and the gw2.dat, the latter being the main game file.
