Diablo® III


Jeah it hangs a long time, but the folder grows, till the installer crashs.

Try to install it on a different HDD on your System (no SSD/no OS)...this worked for me

...i can play (nice intro btw), but the servers are busy atm -.-

Ohanakahu, I'd do the same with McAfee. Temporarily uninstall it, and try installing Diablo III, then reinstall McAfee afterwards. McAfee has a removal tool as well.

Now just before I removed AVG to my shock and suprise this install of Diablo III might actually be working...I changed nothing.

Error was not on my side just a slow and painful fix on Blizz end I guess. Its at 5%..and hanging hopefully its gonna work.

If not ill try getting rid of AVG tho if that fails my frustration level will go through the roof.

Uncheck "Automatically Detect Settings" then hit OK.

Worked for me, although I was stuck at 99%.

I didnt even run as admin, I just double clicked the DIABLO DISK Icon outta my Drives list thumbnails. And magically outta nowhere (or the blizzard tech finally fixed the issue but are too embarrassed to talk about it openly maybe) its working as intended.

Try it now everybody see it outta nowhere its working for you now.

DO NOTHING SPECIAL...ignorantly double click the disk.

I'm trying to install via digital download, can't figure out what's wrong for the life of me.
Tried multiple fixes, nothing works.
It seems that I was screwed over by downloading in advance, and everybody and their moron brother who downloaded it the day of are playing as I type this.

Thanks for catering to the casuals once more, Blizzard.
For now I'm counting down the days til my Annual Pass ends.

Zombius the reason it "miraculously started working" is because it never stopped in the first place. Your patience seems to be the technical issue, as it seems with most of us.

Granted, the fact that we have to wait this long simply to install a game is bull excrement, but hey, a little bit of patience goes a long way.

you will wait and hour or 2 3, but you'll play for years (if D2 is anything to go by)

Just a lil patience mate

I re-downloaded the setup file from battle.net then disabled my firewall and it seems to be downloading correctly now.

Well you get what you paid for and nobody paid me for patience.


But seriously on the topic of patience I let this thing GO AND GO. I went off to drink and have a mini celebration with Pizza and Wine.

Funny thing is it got into its 60%'s last night, then had a totally different error.
Then Refused to Stream
Then this other error where it kinda just said a bunch of crap went wrong and WARNING then it failed.
Then this issue after I deleted everything trying to make fresh attempts for best results.

Exploring the disc and running the setup.exe as admin fixed my 1% problem

I had this - Seems ti be installing now

I Did
1) Deleted D3 beta data
2) Ctrl+Alt+Del - Under processes stopped "Agent.exe" from running (Its the battle.net updater)
3) Deleted the D3 tmp folders that were created by the 1st install attempt
4 Restarted the install and SEEMS to be working at 6% installed so far... fingers crossed
