Trouble installing HOTS

ANZ / SEA
when i open up the installer for hots it tries to download wings of liberty (which i already have installed), will i have to re-install wings of liberty then install hots or is there a way around it?
Well, if you send me your copy of HotS via the mail, I can come back to you on that.

SLIN VLA.
Wait 23 hours 45 minutes and try again.
Same here. Even the installer itself is called "StarCraft II installer" - no mention of Hots whatsoever. Not only that, but it wont even install over my current version in my current Wings of Liberty folder. Did Blizzard mess up with linking the right installer for us or something?

EDIT: Bah - apprently it's normal to not have any specific hots files or referenced folders. Didn't realise that - considering the beta went into a complete separate folder that was a separate 8Gb (or whatever it was) file.

Read this :) https://us.battle.net/support/en/blog/9064004/

As far as I am aware (I haven't installed it myself yet due to my laptop being fixed) you enter your CD key and then optimize the files of WOL and it will download any patches etc that you need for HOTS :)

Hope I helped :D
Yeah as Karma said, as long as you had WoL installed and had it updated you don't need to touch the HotS disc.

The HotS client and WoL client are the same, just make sure you put your key in online.

What the HotS disc tries to download is the latest patch, which is because the disc went gold(in to mass production) before the patch went live.
