    have you downloaded the newest patch? if not, please try to visit Battle.net's officiall site and download it manually. and make sure you've got enough space left on your HD,
    Regards, BendiK

    thank you for the help bendik. but these files must be less than 1 Mb and i have just under 250 Gigs left. It is patch 1.20e and that usually is a different error. im thinking i need to install it so i get the registry set up right... but i will find out after i try reinstalling it. note to self: make sure i grab my cd key before i reinstall it... at this point i dont even have any written

    just use Shadowfrench CDKEy grabber. (www.Securegamers.com/shadowfrench) run it, go in "Local Area Network", and alt tab, should display your cdkey, and i belive reinstalling it will do the work

    I fixed the problem, there is a bunch of things you have to do with windows vista to allow the program permissions.

    shut up you fool -.- I use vista too and i never had problems with Games running on Vista.
