Diablo 3 beta stuck updating setup files
Please check this link for more information: the Beta, several startup issues were resolved by setting the Diablo III tools to run in Compatibility Mode.At this time, Compatibility Mode for the retail tools is no longer needed.
Edit: I went to my mom's house, and tried installing it on windows xp, and I'm having the same problems. Close it and click on download run it as admin and it ask where to save the downloaded files. When you can see the download is on 100% and still hanging and it not starting the client. Shot it down go to the Folder where you can see the downloaded file and client! And go to properties and set it to XP service pack 3 and then right click on and run as admin! Next time you run the launcher it should skip the 'Updating Tools' part and begin downloading the patch/update whatever it happens to be. EDIT: I would like to add that I personally have not had this issue since the last tools update (the one a few days ago, not patch 16). But as the shadow once again crawls across our world... This will open the DOS-like program that needs to stay opened through the whole installation. Once the game is installed, you can play with no trouble at all. 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... installers start running today (even though you can install the game, you can't play until midnight PST), a host of issues have cropped up.Most of these can be solved by commonsense troubleshooting techniques, but some others are a bit more .I have tried everything on and those fixes don't work.
I am was using Windows 8, and I reformatted to Windows 7 both 64 bit, and I am still stuck at the same place, and I have tried all the same fixes with both operating systems.
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.
What I did: Run launcher, it'll stick at 60% Open Task Manager and Kill Open C: Program Data/Battle.net/Agent/Agent.868 Run Agent. I uninstalled it, and now I can't even install it again!
Although the method of stopping the agent, and then starting the agent from Program Data did get me to 99%, but it then froze their. Bam it worked I can install what a hell of time and hard by me and not blizzard.
Does anyone have any other advice, I have tried searching the forums, and I can't find anything.
It is forever getting stuck on "Updating setup files............" then pops to "Loading Launcher.........." then right BACK to "Updating setup files............" I KNOW my system exceeds the requires to run this game, I KNOW my internet works perfectly [I play Wo W daily hours at a time] And it is exceedingly infuriating that my MOTHER, on the same network, same system specs had NO PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER INSTALLING AND PLAYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
