Hey all,

If you’re getting “Failed - Network error” when trying to download the Battle.net-Setup.exe it’s possible there’s something interfering with the connection to our download server. Here’s what I would recommend trying:

  1. Run a malware/adware scan to ensure nothing is infecting the system and affecting the download.
  2. Temporarily disable any firewall or anti-virus software, then try the download again.
  3. Check the proxy settings to make sure the connection is not being redirected.
  4. Test the download using a different web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, etc.)

If you’re still not able to complete the download, perhaps try using a different connection such as a mobile hotspot (using mobile data) to see if the download will complete. You could also try connecting through a VPN, which may get around any configuration issue or problems on the internet provider’s side that may cause this download error.

I had the same issue, it’s blizzard’s download page it’s being blocked from but the software will download it, almost like it’s a different location.

Not sure if this helps anyone. I still had access to a game launcher. If you run the games launcher, it will install battlenet, the launcher was about 4gb. My housemate tried downloading the game, same issue. All files tried from https://www.blizzard.com/en-sg/download/ were cancelling. The system was confirmed as virus/malware/adware free.

I hope the above helps track down the issue. Now back to PTR download
