I think some of the servers are dead. Can't login Asia servers now.
Took me less than half hour to install + patch, about 8 hrs ago. Off peak period.

Took me about 20 minutes to re-download the latest downloader and install the game completely.
But I have an awesome new comp & internet... So...

installed it prior to launch but it took about 15 minutes.
2.4ghz intel i5 quad processor laptop; 4gb ram.

u might want to cancel it and try again. if ur using wireless u might wanna try hardwired until u get it installed.

Yeah, this might be an indication something is wrong.... When you say installing, I am not sure if that means downloading or installing.

If its just installing after everything has been downloaded, you have a serious problem if it took 8 hours....

If you mean downloading, it could very easily take that long if its going slow....

All the smart people downloaded the installer(game) a few weeks in advance, but anyways. :P

you have to jump thru hoops to get the game to install.

google diablo 3 won't install.

you will then have to fiddle with settings (run as admin/compatibility mode for xpsp3)

and you may have to fiddle with agent.exe

Don't mean to grave dig, but I just bought it (late on the train) and Its been at 0 % for around 5 minutes I want to say with looks of no further progress.

Been installing for around 4.5 hours (havent been keeping track probably longer >.>) and its at 1.4% but to be fair my internet connection SUCKS and Starcraft II took like 2 days to fully install the updates and game

It takes around 9 months to install. If you uncheck the PvP box, it should install much faster.
