Okay, I dont know if this would work for everyone or Anyone else... but I had invited a few of my friends over for a D3 Launch Party last night and We started the Pre downloads Around 9PM MST well in advance Unfortunately we had all run into the Uploading Setup Files issues and Tried all the fixes and Nothing happened... We all are running Either Windows XP or 7 - Lone and Behold I decided after everyone had gone to sleep to try and figure the issue out. After countless attempts of trying all other Issues. I said lets put every computer in "Safe Mode - With Networking"... Luckly this worked out and we have all be able to install Diablo 3.
