How to fix "can't patch 1.04" loop

I'm also stuck at 92% like the poster above me said. :(

I can literally see my download speed going from 30 kbps to 10, then 9,8, 7, 3, 2, 1 kbps....700 bytes, 300 bytes..20 bytes..1 byte..0.

Then the download speed dissapears completely..

Ok when it stuck at 92% I tried deleting agent exe two times and also copied again into hosts file and it made it to the end finally.

Blizzard please name a legendary axe after this man. Thank you sir :)

Dear Diablo,

What on earth is going on?. Did you sent your Lord of Lies to prompt me " exit the game and the patch will automaticall install " is a bull!@#$. It does not work!. i have change the language to all nation of the country and i have downloaded countless times but nothing happends!. What patch is this? i did'tn pay for this!. I saved all my money for this game and this is what i get?. Comon guys! what da hell.... dont you have a team of tester or something like that to do a test run before you release it?.

Yours sincerly,
the monk.

Just because if u do not change the file authentication, the system won't let u save your change of the file because it is a system file. By default only admin can modify the content of it.

Dear God,

Did what you told, did'tn work. I allowed all authentication on. even god and saturn can access my computer now, but it does not allow me to save still.

If you still can't get the patch - check here:

There's a note about Safe Mode with Networking - I did this with the edited hosts file, and launcher opened and started updating. It did get stuck after a while so I returned to normal windows - ran the launcher again.

And it updated fine, and started downloading the patch!

Good Luck!
:D thanks Slayer for the host file edit!

Thanks again Slayer,

Appreciate it!!

I shouldn't have to !@#$ing do anything.... the fact that I have had problems patching every single patch shows that blizzard is %^-*ing useless and need to get their !@#$ing %^-* fixed!!!

This is pathetic... I've heard that it's not much better on star craft 2
My friend can no longer play it due to patching problems...
