Windows 8 Consumer Preview -- Has anyone gotten Diablo 1 to work?

  • #1
    Hi and thanks for reading,

    I am using the Windows 8 Consumer Preivew and I would like to play Diablo 1. Unfortunately, even using different compatibility settings, I have been unable to accomplish this goal.

    Has anyone gotten Diablo 1 to work?

    Thanks again,
    Will Howard

    I'm have Windows 8 64 bit, and I can't get the game to work for me neither. Whenever I try to launch it, it crashes giving me the "Diablo has stopped working" message. I'm at my wits end and I can't figure this issue out.

    I've looked over the error report in the Diablo folder and can't figure out the problem.

    winblows 8 is made for tablets. the fact that it runs on pc is a travesty.
