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.
