none of this worked. why cant this let me by? is there a way to get the patch dl separately as to bypass this download requirement?
i'm currrently trying a reinstall from disc. hopefully that helps.
ok, i tried a disc reistall, an online reinstall, all suggestions that have been passed my way, and still it says "failed to download required file. check your internet connection and try again." what is going on? is this precedented?
Can you stay in a Selective Startup, and list the Running Tasks and Services?

Hit the Windows key + R, and type:
msinfo32
Then hit Enter or Ok.

This will bring up System Information.

Click on the + sign next to Software Environments
Click on Running Tasks
Click on one item on the right side
Click on Edit, and then Select All (Or hit Ctrl-A)
Click on Edit, and the Copy (Or hit Ctrl-C)

Then Paste everything into a reply.

Then click on Services
Click on one item on the right side
Click on Edit, and then Select All (Or hit Ctrl-A)
Click on Edit, and the Copy (Or hit Ctrl-C)

Paste everything into the post, select and highlight everything you just pasted, and hit the "pre" button (It says "Code Blocks" when you hover your mouse over it). That'll make the information much more readable.

Assuming it's the message I think it is... "Failed to download a required file. Please check your internet connection and try again" I would suggest (if the blue takes too long, or his/her solution doesn't work) go to patchup.info and get the TFIL file and put that in the place of your own.

me and my friend have the exact same problem, and we have tried everything. what ELSE is there to do?

did you solve your problem?
strawhatkevo, it looks like you're posting from a university network. I would check with your campus network administrators to be sure ports 3724 and 1119 are allowed for you.

so the university is blocking me from playing starcraft? lol
i live in a dorm and a few days ago i was able to play without any problems
I had a similar problem trying to do it via the wireless network on campus, but then I tried using a cabled connection and it worked fine. Hope this helps!
