Nah....ES doesn't change anything I know of, to make vanilla not work. I've played it for years. I read most of those things also. Most are for after you get it started, if I do recall. Sometimes I wonder if a simple reboot might be in order:) I think I'll try that first...haven't rebooted this laptop in weeks.:)Posted in: Diablo II

Here is the email I just sent Blizz support. I love Windows 7, but I'm starting to wonder how much some parts were improved over Vista. It's ridiculous to me that I've been playing Eastern Sun on this laptop for a month or more, and cannot even get vanilla D2 to run, or the patch to install. This after I gave up on Diablo 1 working. Getting more than a little frustrating.Posted in: Diablo II
By the way, I also just tried it again, after disabling Desktop Composition. Same issues.
"Trying to get 113c patch. Downloaded, but it doesn't work. Says the version I have is newer. So, tried to start D2, for the first time, on my newish Win 7 laptop, won't even start. Says to put LOD disk in, even thought it's in already. And, that Storm.dll is missing.
I've been playing a D2 mod(Eastern Sun), for weeks, already. Works fine.
I changed the properties to Service Pack 2, and it is running as Admin.
By the way, I had similar problems getting Diablo 1 to run. I gave up. I couldn't install the 1.09 patch, or connect to Battlenet. Any ideas on that, as well?
Edit: Oh, also, I've only played ES for years now. I can't remember if I got the prior patch. And, I don't see where I can get it. Not sure if I even got 1.11. Been too long:) And, being I reinstalled on this new machine, naturally, I have none of them, anyhow. Could that be part of my problems?

I'm having the exact same issue the original poster in this thread had. I have Win 7, and can't get the 109 patch to work. Game color problems are the least of my worries right now. Was there a fix for this? I read through all the pages and don't see one.Posted in: Diablo I & Hellfire
I also tried to connect to battlenet, and cannot. So, no way to get the patch. However, I started a single player game, and my colors look fine.
Wanted to initiate my son to Diablo via multiplayer. Really hope someone can tell us how I can get the patch, and how we can play multiplayer now. I've read enough to know that IPX isn't going to work with Windows 7. So, I guess I need to be able to connect to Battlenet. Unless there's a way to get IPX.
Edit 2: Still waiting for answers. Hans was helping me a bit, and mentioned Win 7 needs the NT patch. Still doesn't work. Get this message, when try to run patch:
"This program is used to upgrade programs through battle.net and does not need to be run"
