"I was getting all the same errors as everyone else. unable to stream, unexpected error, contact support, etc.
While reading some posts on the subject, I came across one that said any installer installed before Saturday will not work. I don't know why, they may have elaborated, but I didn't finish reading the post, or the responses to it. On it's surface, it doesn't really make sense, why would they allow people to pre-download the installer if said installer wasn't going to work on the 14th?
Anyway, long story short, I un-installed my old installer, and re-dl'd it from my account page, and voila. I'm installing the game as we speak."
I followed this guy's advice and it worked. You don't even need to redownload it all, just get the initial downloader again from your Bnet page and run that, tell it to save the installation files to the same location as your existing ones are. It'll download another 2mb or so and then work fine. Hope this helps you guys.
Same error here with the enGB client. Re-downloaded then installer from battle.net and it downloaded a small amount extra and now it works. Thanks for the advice Iix.
Note, I did not change from enGB to enUS and it still worked.

Re-downloaded the installer file from Bnet. It scanned the other 7.6 gigs I had, downloaded another tiny portion and the installer worked fine afterwards. Don't worry you don't need to re-download everything, just the initial 7mb installer.
