Problems installing (.parts)

I have tried redownloading the client 3 times now.

First time, I thought it was finished so I closed it. But when I tried to install it said my files were incomplete. And so it was, the files in the folder were named .part (Tome 2 and 3).

I deleted the whole thing and started over, but that did not help. When it finished downloading it just shut down and the .part files are still all that it created.

In my folder, I have one "Installer Tome 1.MPQE", one "Installer Tome 2.MPQE" (0kb) "Installer Tome 2.MPQE.part" (4GB), and one "Installer Tome 3.MPQE.part" (3,5GB)

What can I do to make the downloader download the whole game and not end in parts all the time??

Once all the Tomes have downloaded they will be in .part format, DO NOT CLOSE the
downloader until it finishes converting the .part files into .MPQE files.

The downloader will convert the tomes to their intended final format, once this process
is complete the downloader will close automatically and the installer will launch by

As I said, I did fail these instructions the first time.

The second time however, the downloader did shut down by itself, but no launcher launched..

I had a similar issue where the .part files were not being converted, they seemed
stalled, so I kept the file window open and by simply clicking on the 0kb .MPQE
file I was able to nudge the conversion into action.

I also kept refreshing the file window to make sure the file was still being

I did this for both Tome 2 and Tome 3.

Downloader crashed 3 times while downloading. Finally got it to 100% and have the issue with "Installer Tome 2.MPQE.part" (4GB) not converting to "Installer Tome 2.MPQE" (0kb). Anyone know of a way to force this without having to download it again?

Tried clicking on the files as per Krullcat's post, but no luck.

Downloaded the client from my battle.net account just now and it has started running the installer (@ 10%). Previously had been using the pre-release client. File is still a .PART, so have to see what happens.

No luck crashed. Might have to borrow the disc off someone I guess, or try downloading the 8GB again....
