I recently decided to give LOTRO another whirl and updated my (long outdated) client to the most recent version. While there were a few hiccups along the way, this ultimately completed and the launcher started and began the normal sequence. However, the first time I did this, the launcher failed during the "Check Products" portion and then exited. Upon restarting the launcher, the game now always stops at 44% during the "Check Products" portion. Thinking this might be some sort of bad installation, I downloaded and installed the client from scratch. However, I still have the same problem - failure and exit upon the first run and then stop at 44% at all subsequent runs. I have let it run for over an hour and nothing happens. My LOTRO installation is not in the default location. I also deleted my previous profile data to ensure there were no lingering configuration incompatibilities.

My launcher log is below:

I would like to give the game another try, but unfortunately this has stopped me cold in my tracks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
