Diablo® III

A new patch is available - Workaround

hey bath ,
im up to step 5
and i can't find the application data , folder in all users folder.
is there somewhere else to find it?

it still doing a loop even after i tried method 1, keep saying theres new patch available, click ok go back to launcher, game is up to date, click play, and the same thing happens again

my friends now suggested me to delete the whole battle net folder in program data...
lets see if it works

Step 1 UNINSTALL. Not painless.... POINTLESS

Check the blue posts above this thread...
Wow Barthus just WOW! now playing. Thank you so much!
Geez guys
login page> options> change language.
it will restart d3 and it will start the update. This has worked for many!
Then, when it's all downloaded, simply change back the language.

Dude if i uninstall it will take FOREVER! I don't have the fastest bandwith : /

i have updated the method for those who do not want to uninstall

could you try this instead (minus the re-installation part)

1. Look for battlenet folder located in hidden folder c:\ProgramData\ , if it's not there, don't worry about it, if it's there, just delete it.

To reveal hidden folders in windows 7, go to control panel->appearance and personalization->folder options, click on 'view' tab and select 'show hidden files folders and drives' and click OK.

2. Go into C:\Program Files(x86)\Diablo III\ (or whatever folder you chose) and delete the following,

Diablo III.exe
Diablo III.mfil

Go into C:\Program Files\Diablo III\Data_D3\PC\MPQs\

check EVERY folder and subfolders for any file that contains -10235.MPQ and delete them at all (there should ONLY be 2 of these files for a fresh installation)

3. Load .agent.db in main Diablo 3 folder with wordpad and change patch URL to the following,


it should look something like this

"patch_url" : "http://enUS.patch.battle.net:1119/patch",

save and close

4. Final step is to download the old Diablo III.exe file provided on page 1 of this thread,


stick it into your D3 folder, and load Diablo III Launcher.exe first. It will only give you an option to Install. Exit once!

Re-load launcher.exe again and IT SHOULD DOWNLOAD a very small update file (this file is much BIGGER if you are using another language besides English so be warned),

Once ready to play, launch the game and in your login screen, look at bottom left screen and check the version, <- it must be this number otherwise you will get login error again

Now you will be able to login as normal!

Credits to barthus!
