Hey all,

We are investigating an increase in the BLZBNTAGT000008FC errors after a recent patch. We hope to have more information on this investigation soon. Please stay tuned for updates.

Thank you for reporting this to us and for your patience in these matters.


Just writing to say i have the same problem.

Same problem to me, I’ll be looking out for solutions or updates

Same problem here. When I locate, it wants to update but then instantly goes back to “Install/Locate”. If i install, it just hangs on the first screen of the installation process.

Hi. I have found a solution on reddit (/u/mikrimone):

Win+R : services.msc
Right click on “Secondary Logon Service”
Properties -> General -> Startup Type: Automatically -> OK
Restart Computer

Worked for me.


Clearing the cache worked for me.

Hey folks,

We made a change on our end which should have fixed this. Is anyone still having this error?

yes, i have still this error


Can you try reinstalling the application to make sure that you picked up the changes? If this does not work, please post the error code/message you receive when you have the error.

I am still having problems, the hearthstone download wont go past 69%, and I cant reinstall battlenet either. I have followed all the recommended suggestions to no avail.
