"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."
I tried right clicking and running it as administrator and I got this message.
"Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Diable III\Diablo III Launcher.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
I followed that pathway to the Diablo III folder, clicked directly on the Diablo III application and got another error message. A quick check online told me to go to DxDiag and hit "Run 64-bit DxDiag". It had a short green load bar at the bottom left. It ended and I closed the window.
After this the third message changed to the following.
[Bar at top] Unsupported 16-Bit Application [Bar at top]
The program or feature "\??\C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III\Diablo III Launcher.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please Contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.
Unfortunately, while I can tell the third message is different, I cannot remember the wording of the first version of it.
I opened windows update and there are 9 separate updates that installed yesterday, though I do not know if they installed before or after I played in the afternoon.
Any advice? 0_o
