  • This should be resolved with today's tools patch.

    Start up the launcher as normal. When prompted for your admin username/password, please enter your credentials. This will allow Agent to fully update and resolve the issue.
  • What specifically happens when you attempt to install the game?

    Try deleting the folder located in Users/Shared and see if this helps.
  • Can you attempt to install one more time? When the install does not go though, please send me your system information.

  • Try creating a new administrator and attempt to install via Safe Mode and see if it helps.

    Creating a new admin account:

    Starting up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot)
      1. Be sure your Mac is shut down.
      2. Press the power button.
      3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
      4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
      5. Once the login screen appears, make sure it has Safe Boot/Safe Mode displayed. This indicates you've done the steps properly.
      6. Login and attempt to install/patch. Once you are done, simply restart the Mac to leave Safe Mode.

    Now you can email the compressed (zip) file to This way I have all your logs and can investigate further. Make sure you put the URL and thread title in the body so I can know what issue we're talking about.
  • This sounds like a similar issue where a bad Diablo III.mfil file was cause issues. Can you try deleting that to see if it works Pelicashka? This is located in the D3 directory.

    Also, do you ever get any crash reports that have a long string of letters and numbers?
