Diablo® III

Can't open diablo 3 setup


The download worked totally fine, but I cannot open the setup file. I have archive utility and it's working fine, but it will not unzip the setup. When I try to open it says "You cannot use this version of the application Diablo III Setup with this version of Mac OS X." Nothing has worked, I even downloaded the new installer and I have the same problem trying to open it.

Are you using the Blizzard Presale Downloader or the new D3 install client?

This is small step for me, but big step for humanity. Or something like that...

Same exact issue for me.

I'm attempting to download from the "Download Games" page in Game Management on Battle.net; I purchased a WoW subscription, so Diablo 3 came free.

Oh, goody.

The reason I can't play is because I don't have Snow Leopard or Lion. So, I'll have to pay $29 for Snow Leopard at minimum and another $29 for Lion if I want to play at the recommended settings.

Word to the wise: double-check what version of OS you're running. Chances are, it's less than 10.6.

I have posted this several times. I had the same issue... I am on 10.6.8

1. Right click diablo III setup - one with no extension. Hit Show Package Contents.
2. New folder will open up. Contents > MacOS - Diablo III setup < open this.
3. Terminal opened up and asked for system password and started installing.

I tried that, and it encountered an error, and terminated the installer. Any suggestions?
how do I find out if i'm running with what version of OS i'm running? if I don't have the right one, how do I upgrade?

Oh, and by the way -- if you DON'T have Snow Leopard, you have to have it SHIPPED to you from Apple. It's not available in stores any longer per a discussion with an Apple representative just now. Also confirmed with my local Apple store.

So, if you're in the same boat as me... you're screwed for 4-5 days until Snow Leopard reaches you! Snow Leopard is the bare minimum -- but you can upgrade to Lion instantly online (most preferred).

To find the OS version: click the Apple in the top left-hand corner. Then, "About this Mac" -- your version is underneath the Mac OS X logo. Snow Leopard is 10.6.
I did exactly what you said and the setup program did load. However, I then receive an Error 108 "Unable to load Installer Tome 2.MPQE"
Any suggestions?
