Nobody knows anything? What the !@#$ is going on. I've been stuck on Updating Setup Files on my other computer for over a month now. So i try my desktop an what do ya know....I get stuck on Checking for Updates and then it gives me a god damn error.
This is bull%^-*.
I brought my my laptop into work to download while I was working today. Where I was sitting, I was barely getting a signal but it would still download little chunks before the internet would fail. I gave up and decided to move closer to the router during my lunch break.
Now i get the same error immediately upon clicking the set-up file where as it worked fine and started with out problems earlier.
I found a fix for me. You may try it.
Path out to C:\ProgramData\Battle.net\Setup
Cut and paste the 'diablo3_enus' file into another location just to save it in case you need to revert.
then try running the Set-up file as Admin.
This should bring up the "Checking for Updates" then once done, it should bring up the Diablo 3 Splash screen, and then you can continue on to install.
Remember when it asks if you need to activate, and you are an AP holder, then you do not need to activate. It will then start your download.
I was getting the blzpts00007 error, here was how i fixed it:
If your agent.exe program is never running in the task manager during the installation, you could have a messed up registry due to a virus. Check out
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution
for anything suspicious. I had a lot of "update.exe" "scanner.exe" "updater.exe" the virus made to keep anti-virus from running. One of them was "agent.exe", which meant the updater would never start, and the game wouldn't install.
