i followed your instructions with modifying the .agent.db file in the diablo 3 folder then deleting the agent older from the battlenet folder. When i went to the launcher it just came up with the first ever setup saying INSTALL.
I read through later where you said to one person to rename the agent.db file in the battlenet folder, i did this, same thing, i then opened it in wordpad and saw that it had the patch as http://enSG.patch.battle.net:1119/patch, i changed the SG to US in this one and it worked with no issues after that

Hi all, I had a go at this fix and I managed to break my D3 install.... but managed to also fix it and solve this issue in a few steps.
This fix has worked perfectly on 3 diablo 3 installs so far.
Also thanks to Barthus for giving me the starting steps to get to this point
Before you start, make a backup copy of the original .agent.db file. (to restore in case something goes wrong)
I am in Australia so I am unsure what changes would be required in this step for other regions
Next I downloaded (and virus scanned... its safe btw) the exe from Barthus at http://www.gamefront.com/files/21864092/Diablo_III_exe_1_0_0_8370_zip
Next NB IT IS IMPORTANT YOU DO NOT PERMANENTLY DELETE THESE FILES. ONLY SEND THEM TO YOUR RECYCLE BIN.
ALSO MAKE SURE TO ONLY DELETE UPDATE FILES ENDING IN 10235
1. Delete the Updates folder. (Diablo III\Updates)
When you run the game it will be broken :( It will come up giving you the option to install the game again.
1. Now exit the installer and restore all of the files and folders you deleted from your recycle bin (Arrange by date deleted works great if you have alot of stuff in there)
2. launch the game again and it will update correctly.
As I said this has worked perfectly for 3 installs in Australia and we play on the Americas region... so anyone on Americas go for your life, quick fix. other regions I cant be 100% sure this will work but give it a shot, the worst that can happen this way is you restore all the files back to their original state and wait for Blizzard to fix it.
If anyone can confirm this works or doesnt for other regions I would appreciate it.
Hope it helps and thanks again Barthus!

Holy cr@p i have no idea what t do, it is confusing the hell out of me. will i come back in a few days and find that it wil fix itself or that battlenet have fixed it? or am i just never going to be able to play again if i dont follow the million confusing steps???
Whoever you are, thank you.
I was a little skeptical on deleting the Agent folder initially, even though I have already saved a back-up copy and my heart was pounding all the way from the time I deleted till I launched the game.
But it all turned out well. So thank YOU.
Good Evening Burthus,
Sir, I tried searching for .agentdb file in DIABLO 3 Folders there is 1 .agent file without "db" and when i try opening it with ?? there is no word pad or any program can open this .agent file in my folder.. hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
i tried lots of online game before but only Diablo 3 makes so difficult in terms in patching new patch or updates. why this game soooo complicated? cant you just make patch that will automatically update when players open the game? not like this.. blizz gave players a headache ... please do something about it.
