Warcraft 3 install stuck at 65%

Technical Support
When I first downloaded setup.exe it was stuck at 0%
- I cancelled it
- I started it again
- stuck at 65%
- cancelling and starting again and I'm still stuck at 65%
Thoradin,

There are a few things that can cause an install to stall like that. I have a few steps for you to go through that should get you taken care of.

• First you will want to right click the installer and select run as administrator.

• Try running in compatibility mode
- right click the GAME INSTALLER icon
- select properties
- Go to the compatibility tab and select Windows OS 7 Service pack # 1 (If you are on Windows 10) Windows OS XP if you are on Windows 7 or 8.

Lastly lets close any background programs that can interfere with installation.

Let me know if it continues giving you trouble.

Still giving me trouble
It's been going for 2 days now, at 76%
same for me but won't go past 65%
Any update on this? mine is stuck at 99%
Stuck at 65% here too. Trying to update by going ingame instead will just tell me to restart and give me error that warcraft is already running.
Mine is also stuck at 65%

Can we just get a WC 3 remastered like StarCraft got?
Same issue stuck at 99%...
Same. PTR stuck at 65%
+1 stuck. first at 65%,
Cancelled & restarted as admin & compatibility(per above), now stuck at 97%
Same problem for me too, got stuck at 99% so i reinstalled the game but still facing the same problem
same here... no solution yet, any idea?
Same issue here.

To be very specific, it starts off downloading but remains at 0%. It never moves from there, I could leave it on for hours, and nothing will move. So, I cancel the download. When I try to start it up again, it immediately starts off at 65% and stays there forever.
I had the same issue, thanks to Blizzards help it is fixed now!

You guys have to do the following:

"To start off we will want to delete the Warcraft III installation directory. Along with this, please delete the following folders:
- Press windows key + R
- Type %programdata%
- Click OK
- Delete the Battle.net and Blizzard Entertainment folders

- Press windows ke y + R
- Type %appdata%
- Click OK
- Delete the Battle.net folder

- Press windows key + R
- Type %localappdata%
- Click OK
- Delete the battle.net and Blizzard Entertainment folders

- Press windows key + R
- Type %temp%
- Click OK
- Select everything in the folder and delete as much as you can"

After I did that I restarted my pc ( somehow it took a little longer then usual) I redownloaded the installer from the site and it worked.

Should be the fix you need!
Still not working for me

Just make Warcraft 4 already!

Holy !@#$ that worked.
Same problem, stuck at 65%

I don't understand what the problem is. I've had this game for about 15 years since it first came out, and never had any issues until the new blizzard app was required for updates! Soooooo frustrating!
