Diablo® III

Unsupported 16-bit Application

Posts: 5
When I try to launch the installer via my hard copy I get this popup.

"The program or feature "\C:\ProgramData\Battle.net\Client\BlizzardLauncher.1506\Blizzard Launcher.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatability with 64-bit versions of windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if 64-bit Windows compatible version is available."

Then the game closes promptly afterwards. Any ideas anybody?

Have the same problem. Even with the downloaded client.

i've got the same problem. downloaded the enGB client. it took about 7 hours, the download was never interrupted and everything went smooth. until the setup launched automatically, then i got the "unsupported 16bit application" error. i have windows 7 64bit.

i just found this resolved thread: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4926494466
how nice of google to spit out the unresolved one first ...
anyway, wasn't able to try the solution yet but i'm very confident it will solve the problem.

EDIT: yes, that seems to get rid of the 16bit unsupported application error, indeed. i'm able to install now!
