D3 updating setup files taking forever

22 Oct

Graev was unable to play Diablo 3 during the beta due to a problem with the launcher giving an error. it will get stuck for a min or so and then work Fix #5 (Thanks SCH) NOTE: This Fix is experimental. Proceed with Fix #5 at your own risk, “I followed all of the posted fixes and none of them were working for me.After pre-ordering tonight and downloading the client to be ready for Tuesday, we ran into the same problem and thought all hope was lost. Close it, and ctrl alt delete and end the “Agent” process. Go to C/programdata/battle.net/agent and run the “Agent” executable 4. An user on the forums posted his version of the C:\Program Data\Battle. All you have to do is replace his version with your old version, and hopefully everything should work (as it did for me).” -SCH from comments - Fix #5 Additional Notes: If you get a decryption error it means you probably didn’t finish the download. decryption error might also indicate a corrupt download. For whatever reason, with Internet Explorer set to work offline, the Diablo 3 installer was failing to do anything other than time out.

)This one worked for me: try and find the agent application in the folder (for example C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\battle.net\Agent). i close the agent again and reopened the Diablo 3 setup and began the same process...this a shot.

I remember reading something before about some agents or something a while back but can't find the threads and not sure if that's my problem. well i havnt really encountered that problem once i started it in admin mode. Maybe there is some feedback to be found on the tech forums on offical d3 forums.

But im rather lazy atm so cba looking it up for you! After trying all of the options posted to no avail, I started fiddling with it myself.

This is the only way I've ever been able to get by the "Stuck at 60% Updating Tools" issue. Not sure if they 'fixed' it or if my Windows finally 'just' started to let it work. Running on Vista 64-bit myself, and got into this problem too. and the stench of terror drifts on a bitter wind...

If you promise to stop (by clicking the Agree button below), we'll unblock your connection for now, but we will immediately re-block it if we detect additional bad behavior.
