Did anyone have a WoW beta download that wouldn't start?

I got the downloader, I accepted the license agreement, selected a folder and the software created a bunch of files and folders of 0 byte size. Now, next to “Estimated time left”, it says “Starting up…” and it won’t load a single byte. It’s been like this for hours.

I have the XP firewall disabled, I have no other problems with BitTorrent or my internet connection in general. I’ve tried re-starting the download, even on different drives and on the other computer. Same result. =/

Did the downloader ask for your beta key? If it didn’t, you need to kill the donwloader from task manager or reboot and then try to restart it again.

Yeah, it asked waaaaaaay back early this morning. =/
