Don't buy the discs, try downloading the install files by signing into your battle.net account on battle.net

I don't recall how I got mine added there but I think I just typed in the CD-Key and it was available for download.

no need. If you have the Cd key put it on your battle.net account. And download it from there.

What the other guys said, but I have the original disc that I have bought on release, and I use them on my vista machine all the time, so I really don't understand how you have this problem.

The original discs don't work with the new OS's. I think they fixed it in patch 1.13, but I'm not sure. So the only way to get the updated patched version that works with your OS is to download it from battle.net

I have never had a problem with Vista/7 and Diablo II, aside from an error message saying it wouldn't work (which it did)/

If you can't install for whatever reason from your CDs, upload the Keys to Battle.net and then Download and Install from there, as those above me suggested.

No signature.
