do not use the directory D:\Games\Diablo-III-8370-en GB-Installer as this is the one created by the downloader). If you chose the correct directory only around 65MB will need to be downloaded to fix your install, otherwise you'll re-download the entire ~7.6GB New EU English Installer New EU English Installer (Mac) New German Installer New German Installer (Mac) For more information or help with the installation, check out the Diablo III Pre-Sale Downloader Walkthrough or use the search on the support site.I had to delete folder one more time, then it started downloading. I'd suggest sticky this thread, since I'm pretty sure with 200k more people with AP getting invites, more people are likely to get stuck on the same problem.I actually have no idea why this fixed it, but this was the only thing I did. So sticky to not flood the forums with the same threads.We'll keep this post updated throughout the next couple of days with the latest problems and info on how to fix them.We'll also include non-Blizzard sources when appropriate (but in general, Blizzard is pretty on top of all these). It also works for the "Updating files..." progress bar error. page=1 TL; DR noob friendly version: This worked for me, I was finally able to log in after 1.5 days of failed attempts. Go to WTF/Find and edit SET gx Api "D3D11" to SET gx Api "D3D9" Start Launcher.

Update - Possible fix for 15544 Update Okay, so I couldn't log in after the 15544 Update. If the progress bar is stuck, try it a few more times.

Whether you repair your previous install or download the entire game again, it's necessary to use this new downloader to install and play the game when it launches.

If you try running the Diablo III file and nothing appears to be happening, check to see if the Windows Service for Secondary Logon is enabled. This service being disabled may also cause the system to appear to hang during the "Updating Setup Files" portion when run.

In fact, setting the tools to run in Compatibility Mode may cause other issues with the Blizzard Launcher.

If you are having issues with the game and normal troubleshooting steps have not helped, please create a thread here or you can create a Support Ticket on your Account Management page.

Though the downloader may show 100%, please allow some time for it to fully complete.
