Same issue here. Upon hitting "Acquiring Bulk Data 67/86", game just restarts (returns to desktop without any message, then restarts)
Tried clearing cache/settings too, didn't work.

I also have this issue, and even after running the repair utility it does not go away.

If you're suffering from getting stuck at acquiring bulkdata when trying to login to the game, please follow the following instructions:

1) Download the file from:
2) Extract the files located in the zip file to Bulkdata folder located under the EVE installation folder. Default locations:

Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit: C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\bulkdata
Windows XP/Vista/7 64bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE\bulkdata
Steam client Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit: c:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\common\EVE Online\bulkdata
Steam client Windows XP/Vista/7 64bit: c:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\EVE Online\bulkdata

3) Once the file has been extracted, start the EVE client (do not login yet).
4) Press ESC or click on the Settings button and go to the 'Reset Settings' tab and click on the 'Clear' button for 'Clear all cache files'
5) The client will prompt you to restart the client, click yes on that prompt
6) Once the client has been restarted login normally.

I have completed those steps, and now it crashes on 11/86.

Would it be possible to get the entire bulkdata folder in a zip file, instead of just 2 files? Thanks.

[Edit] Please disregard. I simply ran the repair tool, and repeated the steps, and it works this time [/Edit]

Had this issue - and after following CCP's guide, and then doing the EveRepair tool i was able to login, but now have no characters.

-- copy from this thread

Cursor does change depending on where it is (where the text - get the text cursor) and the interact ( cursor with lines below ) over the 'tip of the day' etc.

--- Edit :
i declined the recomended update (after running the repair tool again)
was stuck at bulk data - (issue 1)
cleared cache
copy pasted the contents into eve/bulkdata
and my characters were back.
