Diablo® III

Long Installation Time?

Anyone else getting unusually long installation times? I've been sitting here on the installation screen for a good half hour now and it's only at 14%. There is nothing using up my bandwidth running on the side, and my PC is far from "low-tech".

i had the same problem with the physical copy. But it does install the game if you wait long enough (I think mine was around 4-6 hours). But yeah, it sucks that it has to take that long.

really annoying that for me it seems to go blazing fast (im talking 1 MB/s DL speed according to launcher) then pauses, then goes blazing fast for 2 minutes, then stops.

why didn't i just go buy a physical copy like i knew i should have....

I am at more than 5 hours now to install from the DVD. What did you need Blizz to redownload the entire freaking game? This is stupid.

This is ridiculous, I buy the stupid game on DVD and I have to wait all night before it even begin to install?? I bought the DVD because I wanted to install it faster, not to wait in front of my computer for hours.

*Edit* if your install is stuck at 0% (like it was for me) make sure to make every update of your software, including Windows.
