(Solved) - diablo 2 on vista(16 posts)
hehe annoying isnt it
heres your fix
watch carefull ill only type this once
however you can read it over and over
) Go to Start > Run > type regedit
2) Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Shell Folders"
if there is no string in there called "Programs" put that in with the value:
so that make a new string then right click your new string call Programs and modify then in there put C:\
make one more called Desktop and do the same thing with the strings
and you can get the installation to work, game works fine too.
basicly the game is looking for the desktop but cant find it...you just showed it the way...whe it works for you post a quick thanks guys
this may work for other games with the same problem. thought i'd post it up incase some had the same issue...
i tried everything recommended on every web site and forum but the game just wont play...i reinstalled it and now a message appears saying that i don't have a play disc in my drive
please give advise
...i have an asus f3-generation laptop...
I made an account on here just to thank you, Diablo2helper. I have been fighting with this for months. Finally I came across your post and it works PERFECTLY! Thanks again for all that help!
actually as long as this might be starting back up again, is there anything else you can do? i have both those entries already on my PC when I checked I have set it to compadibility mode run it with 256 color and as an admistrator and I still get a blue screen of death physical memory dump. I heard there was a memory problem that made it only work with 1.5 gb of memory but I have 2 and still no luck
