[quote]Are there any particular programs that have major issues with stopping the Agent program from running? I've tried disabling everything I can think of as far as background programs go
and it still dies randomly.
Usually, it's a security program that interferes with Agent. Unfortunately, just turning them off rarely helps as most security programs continue to run services even when disabled. Although I know it's a pain, the only sure way to be sure if it's your firewall or anti-virus program that's causing the issue is to temporarily uninstall the programs completely.
Thankfully I've not spotted any rampant security program issues, although I did overhear a few reps talking about AVG's Watchdog causing some oddness. Security programs frequently mess with our games, so it wouldn't be too surprising.
I don't think that's the issue and thought I d let you guys know from what I have experienced.
The reason I dont think it's the issue is because prior to installing diablo 3, since I was participating in the beta, I formatted my hard drive, and wiped EVERYTHING from it. SO i installed windows again, all the drivers and did the proper updates from manufacturer (Sager).
I did NOT reinstall any sort of anti virus, not avg, not norton, not anything, and I also had the firewall OFF the entire time.
This is the problems I have been getting:
1. a) Upon clicking play, nothing helps, the game just doesn't start, I waited several minutes nothing.
b) Once i attempt to run it again it says: Diablo III is already running
c) So my next step would to be END process agent, that just tosses me back to step a) and cycle begins
2. a) I delete the battle.net folder
b) Once I double click on diablo 3 shortcut, it now takes a while and a diablo 3 setup launcher screen appears and a bar "updating setup files", following that and after
clicking play we are back to step 1a).
Anyways I have tried everything on this post, I have tried updating my windows, updating drivers, checking for any updates. I am just lost at this point and out of options.
Also I saw that someone worked around it on a different forum by:
Step 1. RIGHT CLICK on diablo 3 and click on properties (not launcher, the actual diablo 3 icon WITHIN your diablo 3 folder.
Step 2. Select tab COMPATIBILITY
Step 3. Under Compatibility Mode - select run this program in compatibility mode for:
option 1 - Windows 7 (which did not work for everyone, this is REGARDLESS of your windows)
option 2 - WIndows XP Service pack 2
option 3 - Windows XP Service Pack 3 (which seems to have work for the most users, including to windows 7 users.
Step 4. ALso select the box under priviledge level - run this program as an administrator.
Step 5. Click apply and then OK.
Step 6. Right click on the actual diablo 3 (not launcher) and try run as administrator.
That did not work for me, but several people were happy after that. Thought I d share
