Diablo 3 stuck at “Updating Setup Files” Fix

Graev was unable to play Diablo 3 during the beta due to a problem with the launcher giving an error. After pre-ordering tonight and downloading the client to be ready for Tuesday, we ran into the same problem and thought all hope was lost.  Graev has Windows Vista and could not get past the “Updating Setup Files” little window that came up.  We scoured the support forums for days, Googled, and had no luck until tonight.

Here is the fix that finally worked for Graev:

Fix #1

Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

Scroll down and find “Secondary Logon”

Right Click > Properties

Change it from ‘Disabled’ to ‘Automatic’

Run your Diablo 3 setup as administrator and it should quickly go through Updating Setup Files and bring you to an install screen.  Congratulations, your game now (hopefully) works!   If this solved your issue, spread it around.

Blizzcon 2011: Monks, DOTA, and Weakened Resolve

It’s Blizzcon time again.  Time to be reminded of my weak resolve, get hyped, and agonize over a wait that will surely feel infinite.

Mists of Pandaria was confirmed, as if it wasn’t already.  I am done with WoW.  I swear, I am.  Really.  I mean it.  Yet… Panda… Monk…want… No, I’m done.  Maybe it was the music in the trailer or the open-fist fighting styles of those pleasantly plump kungfu pandas that sucked me in and took captive my mind.  I am a slave to my own desires for polish.  It looks great.  A zone on the back of a turtle for crying out loud!

Maybe the coolest part of the opening ceremony was watching the Diablo III and Heart of the Swearm trailers.  I feel like we can piece them all together and make a real movie.  I have this fear that Diablo 3 is never going to release because the day it does the world might stand still.
