Diablo 3 updating blizzard launcher stuck
My downloader is at 100% and has been for some time. I tried running the now-complete that was downloaded and it's telling me I cannot due to it being in use by another program (likely the downloader). The Blizzard downloader is a P2P client, even if it has finished downloading it stays open to let others download from you. The downloader is based on Bit Torrent, an extremely robust protocol for downloading.I'm aware that closing the downloader and then reloading it to resume where it left off and finish whatever last second stuff it has to do is an option, but since its 'stuck' I'm worried something might go wrong. Check out the button on the lower right, if the download is over it should read "Finished" or something like [email protected] Robot thank you that worked! apparently some kind of error had fooled it into thinking I was done and thats why it was stuck. It is minimally phased by crashes, disconnections, partially downloaded files being deleted or much else.Now you can email the compressed (zip) file to [email protected].This way I have all your logs and can investigate further.
The game will then close but if I click on the game again it will just to the updating blizzard launcher step. In the answers to this question you can see the "-launch" flag which will bypass the launcher update.
This process will also take 15 to 20 minutes but once its done I can start playing the game. I've tried it and it at least doesn't break anything, but it may have side effects.
