TimmyC,

It sounds like something is preventing the launcher from connecting. There are lots of things that can cause this.

If you are using Windows Vista/7/8, please try right clicking on your game shortcut and select the Run as administrator option.

Disabling or temporarily uninstalling firewall and anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc) can permit the patch to complete successfully. Of course, do not remove security software if you can't reinstall it, and always restore disabled security after patching.

If the issue persists, we can try resetting the launcher files completely. Follow the steps here to do that.

Ok have tried all of those suggestions more than once with no change what so ever. I have not played in over a month due to this problem. I have un installed and re installed plus every suggestion there was a thread for with no results.

TimmyC,

I'd like to get a bit more information regarding the situation. What were the results for the steps you tried? What security program are you running? Did you uninstall or disable it? What happened when you deleted the Battle.net folder?

I am running McAfee and did drop the firewall to try and patch. nothing different happened. Same when I deleted the Battle.net folder same results. The launcher sets up get 1/2 way through checking for updates then gives me the error message. I have tried to open it as the admin as well.

I've been getting the same error as of yesterday. Everything was running fine. Uninstalled the game and tried all similar error fixing solutions and came up with nothing.

It would seem this error is the bane of many of us players. In my case, I don't ever get past it checking for updates, so I had not realized it could be the same error that the rest of you are suffering from. Now however, I suspect it must be.
