"The application encountered an unexpected error"

  • Diablo III will not launch for me, occasionally the title card will appear on my desktop, but immediately after I'm met with an error box stating that "The application encountered an unexpected error"

    For reference I have none of the overlay programs installed on my computer, nor have I ever had them installed. My GPU drivers have been updated, and the last time I played was somewhere around season 5 and I encountered no errors during my playtime then.

    BardBoy,

    You're still getting an overlay-related crash and it looks like it's due to Discord. Check for and uninstall that application if you can. If you don't want to uninstall it, it must be disabled when starting up Diablo III for now.

    Discord Support article explaining how to disable it from starting.

    Same solution as I posted for BardBoy.
