Stuck on "Updating Setup Files"

Keywords:

Getting stuck on the Updating Setup Files loading screen may indicate that the Battle.net Update Agent is having issues installing the game. If stuck longer than a few minutes on this screen, follow the troubleshooting steps below:

  1. If you're using a wireless connection, switch to a wired connection and optimize your internet connection to rule out a connection issue.
  2. Review our troubleshooting steps for the Battle.net Update Agent to make sure it is running properly.
  3. The folder may be saved on a corrupt hard drive sector. Run the Repair Disk utility to resolve hard drive issues.
  4. Programs running in the background can conflict with the Update Agent. Try closing background applications.
