its the 3/april/2013 and this still isn't fixed! I bought the game two weeks ago and I've not yet been able to play it. I have Mac OS X 10.7.3 and I've tried most things. First off, i click to launch D3 and Im stuck on initialising.
I've deleted D3 and Battle.net folders and reinstalled multiple times.
I've tried Force quitting in the activity monitor but but i don't even need to cause as soon as the "Failed to read" Error comes up it's all completely exited.
Ive tried to hit cancel when it says "diablo III would like to make changes" but it gives me another error and won't allow any further action (until i type in my password) and then I'm at INITIALISING again.
Im not very computer savvy, but i look at the dates and it has been months since these issues arose, any solutions?
Instead of restarting you can open Terminal and type:
Everybody !!! This one works !!!!!!!!!!!! I did it!!!!!!
Be aware that this is a "last resort" launch type, since the game cannot patch if it is not run from the launcher. You'll eventually need to resolve the launcher issue or else when a patch finally goes live, you won't have access to the game at all (the directly launched game client still checks for patches and if it sees one tries to run the launcher).

I'd like to point out that in my case of encountering this issue, I created a new user on my iMac and resetting the game folder permissions solved the issue for me.
Thank you Machkhan!
