Yeah man I do have Vista. Im hoping that isn't the root of our problem  ???

Surely it would be flagged up big and bold somewhere if there was a flaw that meant Vista could not run it though right? I see this tutorial is set up for XP and 7 only but I was hoping that was just because of the directories being different from XP compared to Vista/7


Well, i do have vista...and haven't updated to windows 7 (it should be free, but i hear it sucks dick).  Since not a lot of people are experiencing our problem...maybe it is vista.
If anyone else has vista and its working fine for them....let us know.


Ive just started poking around the battle.net forums and it should play fine on Vista (makes sense to not cast aside the huge market that is Vista users)



Well I'm just thinking that maybe something happens when your downloading the patches that mess it up for the launcher...since i did have to download the torrent file.  Maybe that has something to do with it...being that it came from a torrent file.

Oh, or maybe its something in the "versions" folders...something that was added extra that shouldnt have been there.
I tried getting rid of the some of the stuff in each of the files and tried to get it working...but nothing worked.
For someone who has it working...what is inside your "base" folders that are inside the "versions" folder?

Or possibly a firewall/security settings on the files?
I really want to figure this shit out...


Im getting discouraged massively by nothing working so Im giving up for awhile :(


Wait, i think i know how to fix it.  Uninstall it again completely and reinstall it all over again.  You dont have to redownload the maps or AI, but after you install everything (including all of the patches)... DELETE your battle.net folder AND your older patch folders completely.  (if you want to watch replays that means u cant delete the old patch folders...but im not sure that it will work unless you delete them (or you can try and move them to another folder))


I'm having the same problem, but I'm using Windows XP.
Anyone fixed this? How?


In the OP, do you think you could upload your original MODS folder just as an online backup?
