Diablo® III

Invalid Installation Options.

As stated in the title I am getting the following after scrolling down and hitting accept to run the install...

Invalid Installation Options.
Please try again.

Anyone getting this or know a fix besides re-downloading all over again? My search results were mainly for Beta clients and have found no fixes

Well anyone know if I can still cancel or get a refund for the digital purchase?

I would have just bought a physical copy if I knew the download would be this horrible.

I cant get passed this error or find any fixes/workarounds

It took me a few hours to finally be able to install mine. Been reading all the posts (in which I realize you are in most of them), tried their advice but to no avail.

I'm using windows 7 64bit, and finally managed to install by activating the hidden administrator account, and installed in in the default path (seems changing it other folder caused it to fail as well)

I hope that works for you!

I'm also getting the same error when I run down and hit the accept key:

Invalid Installation Options. Please try again.

I'm using Windows 7, Home Premium 64 bit.

Edit: I tried right clicking the D3 launcher icon and running as administrator and it didn't work, still getting the error.

I found a fix. I right clicked on the D3 launcher icon and chose a windows option to "see if this program was compatible" it turned out I had a service pack or something that wasn't. The fix took a minute to download and windows fixed it. If you are still struggling with this error, you might want to try it, this is what I found:

Diablo-III-Setup-enUS is incompatible.

Just got home with my CE and am getting this error. I deleted the folder it said, tried different paths for install, ran as admin in various ways, did the windows fix and tried running comp modes etc and deleted the beta. Not sure what else I can do...

The help links on the German page are all 404 not found also... and most info is pre-launch. It's now a day in or so and I can find no other info. Can I call bliz to help or something?

Opening the disk from "My Computer" and running the .exe file as an admin worked for me. Now I get to wait a thousand years for this huge game to install :-)

If you guys are still having trouble, go to your download folder and move the setup file to the folder you want the install done in, then install and set path to that folder, Just did it and it worked
