StarCraft® II

"Updating Blizzard launcher" game wont launch

Posts: 53
Starcraft has worked fine the whole time i have owned it since it came out. but now when i try to open it, a download starts for a patch or something and then it gets stuck at about 70 percent. The only thing it says is "updating blizzard launcher..."

Has anyone else had this problem before or know what to do?

Btw: I played the day or so before this happened. so there weren't a bunch of patches i am backed up on downloading. I dont think a patch has even been released in the last week.

Ok it worked. not sure which change was the deciding factor. In one of the later ones, maybe the advanced troubleshooting section. Thanks

I had the same problem the suggestions by velnrak made it work for me. I only did step 5 which was deleting the Battle.net Tools folder because I knew the other suggestions wouldn't apply to my computer.
Thanks.

If you just start typing this, it should appear in the Start Menu search:
c:\programdata
Then delete the Battle.net folder. If that doesn't help, delete the Blizzard Entertainment folder as well.

energystar, try restarting your computer, and then see if you can delete the Battle.net folder.
