Technical Support

Hello there!

I'm mostly finding examples of that particular error ("procedure entry point K32getmodulefilenameexw") in relation to Windows XP and Vista platforms, which we no longer support. Are you on one of these older versions of Windows?

Otherwise, let's start by checking for any pending Windows updates:

Windows Update

Let's also try clearing out the Battle.net app's cache folder, in case it's getting stuck on some damaged or out-of-date local data:

Deleting Battle.net Files

If issues persist, we'll want to look over a system report to assess driver and hardware details.
