Diablo® III

Updating Blizzard Launcher Stuck!!

I've been trying all day and its been stuck at the Updating Blizzard Launcher Screen. I reinstalled D3 and now im stuck at the Updating Setup Files screen. I've already tried a lot of things suggested in similar posts but nothing has worked! Also, its the same thing with my Starcraft 2 launcher!

Any help would be great...............

OK so I had this horrible issue for 2 weeks now. I finally got my D3 and WoW launchers to work. I wanted to share because it is a big problem lately. I would recommend before deleting anything check to make sure your adobe reader and adobe flash are both up to date. I tried everything in every forum and none of it worked. Updating Adobe got it running instantly.

You will want Adobe reader IX


And Adobe Flash 11


Hope this helps. If this doesn't work then try everything the blue tells you.

Installing the newest adobe did NOT fix this problem for me, which I was having since the 19th of March.

I got this problem too. I played yesterday and it was fine just today i got this problem. I have already installed latest adobe flash player and reader and tried the -launch on shortcut but still doesn't launch and get this error("Streaming Failure" - Diablo 3 was unable to initialize a streaming connection,which is required to download, patch, and repair files. Please check your connection settings). I did not do anything else with my computer/connection since yesterday. I'm from Philippines playing on US. Please fix this asap.
