UPDATING SETUP FILES..... for the last hour.

#1 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

The title says it all. I'm on a MacBook Pro using the most recent version of OS X. What I have is a disc copy of Diablo 3. When I launch the install, the game did everything normally until it made it to UPDATING SETUP FILES at which point the progress bar stopped at around 30%. I've tried quitting and starting over but nothing works.

Any tips?

Had the same problem, tried everything that was being suggested but nothing worked,I eventually downloaded the blizzard downloader (that also did the same thing) and it just suddenly worked. I changed the compatibility mode to windows XP service pack 3 and ran it as an administrator, and when the setup files loop began I stopped the agent.exe process with task manager (I'm on windows, dont know how this would work on mac).

But yea it's now downloading the entire game, even though I have the disc right here. Kinda sucky.

The installer is in Battle.net under your account/games. If you have a valid Diablo 3 key you can access either the Mac or PC network installer.
