"Failed to change permissions" on mac

  • When I launch Diablo III on my mac, it fails with the message
    "failed to change permissions on a critical file. Please log in as an Administrator and try again"

    I've run with sudo but that did not help. Checked permissions on the folders. Everything looks ok.

    Old build I guess. I have not played in a while
    <BUILD>1.0.8.16603 (75916-915981)</BUILD>

    Blizzard Launcher.log has
    [UIController] Error occurred Failed to change permissions on a critical file. Please log in as an administrator and try again....

    Setup-<numbers>-<more numbers>.log has
    Failed to Repair file/folder permisions for "/Users/Shared/Battle.net"

    Any advice?
  • Hey Ninjack,

    That is an old build. It may the files are damaged or that the build it too old to be properly updated to the current version of Diablo III. At this point I recommend uninstalling and reinstalling Daiblo III.
