    And update error has occurred. (Error 20524)

    Trying to install the newest patch. Gets to 66.9% installing after verifying the patch file and gives me this error. Deleted patch file, re-downloaded, same error.

    Any clues?

    was going to link you to the first page that i found solving this problem from a google search, but it was a gil selling website... Anyhow this is a problem from a corrupted ffxivgame.exe, this usually results from you applying the mouse fix someone released a while back. just get someone to give you a backup of the exe and it should go away
