[Diablo 2 Classic] Cant Install

Just bought D2 Classic and D2 LOD. Downloaded the installer, open the installer, Click Play Diablo (Odd because I thought it should say Install Diablo), Installed blinks like its progressing and does nothing. About 30 seconds later I get a troubleshooting window from Windows.

I’ve tried Admin, disabling antivirus, trying all the different OS compatibilities, and still nothing.

I have to be missing something somewhere. Please help.

Hey Shorteez,

If the installer instantly showed a Play Diablo button instead of Install, this may indicate that you had a previous Diablo II install on that system that wasn’t fully removed. I would recommend to try manually uninstalling and clearing out any old installs using these steps:

  1. Make sure that Diablo II and LOD are not showing up as installed inside the Settings → Apps list in Windows, or Control Panel Add/Remove Programs.
  2. Press Windows key + R to open the Run window
  3. In the box type regedit and press Ok
  4. In the registry editor navigate to the location:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Blizzard Entertainment
  5. Right-click on the Diablo II folder and select Delete
  6. Reinstall Diablo II, then LOD, using the digital installers
