Diablo® III

Stuck at Checking for Updates

Whenever I try to start the game it gets stuck at the Checking for Updates box and does not even begin loading.

Reinstalling doesn't help as it still gets stuck at the same point.

Can anyone please help?

Same problem here, I have tried every "fix" I can find in past forum posts but nothing is helping. I have submitted a ticket to tech support, will re-post if I come up with anything.

This ended up working for me...

Configure Windows to Show Hidden Files and Folders. http://battle.net/support/article/6231

Then naviagte to this folder Windows Vista/Windows 7: C:\ProgramData\

If Blizzard Entertainment, Blizzard, or Battle.net folders exist in the directory, right-click it and click Delete them.
