This is the error I am getting when I attempt to use the updater. Is this a result of your problems with the database?

Update Complete! how can i redownload older version cause in the process of trying to figure this out i deleted the old version that was installed in program files.
I'm posting a comment here to ask for the links to Jira / FishEye to be reinstated, either on the front page or replacing the "Trac" link in the reources list. The Trac link gets you into 404-land.
It seems the links was removed due to the patch day update - if so, perhaps a link to "old frontpage news posts" or something could be added. Sarf 07:27, 27 September 2007 (EDT)
Server crash 2.3?

hmmmm.... someone just did
I've used aceupdater for months without problems, but out of the blue it stopped working for me today... nothing on my pc changed, but it now only appears on the taskbar for a split second, then vanishes. I tried updating windows, and .net, but it still didnt change anything. at this point i'm hoping for a miracle solution or for an older, unupdated version (i used to have one that didnt use .net, but i replaced it).

The link on the main page points to the beginning of a very long thread from 7/18 on the forums. A useful FAQ was posted 7/22 ( http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php?topic=14316.msg231975#msg231975 ) that may answer a lot of your own questions without having to slog through a lot of people asking the same question over and over.
