Diablo 3 Problems Solved


For those of you who have recieved Diablo 3 today and are having problems installing and playing the game, don’t worry – Blizard’s addressing many of the issue’s on their twitter and forums.

“If your installation disc has been ejected, please reinsert and try again. If not, or if you keep seeing this error, log in to Battle.net and install Diablo III digitally” – If you downloaded the installer digitally, this error indicates that it did not convert the files correctly. This can often be caused by closing the downloader early. Though the downloader may show 100%, please allow some time for it to fully complete. To resolve this issue, log into Battle.net and re-run the downloader.

Error 108 – Similar to “An unexpected decryption error occurred”, the error 108 can be caused by corrupted, damaged or incomplete installation files. This can often times be caused by closing the downloader early. Though the downloader may show 100%, please allow some time for it to fully complete. You may be able to fix this by running the downloader and pointing it to the same saved location so that it may scan and download any missing files.

Error 12
– This error is caused by the Global Play feature being disabled until all regions are active. Please make sure you choose the correct region when starting the game as per this sticky:

Error 33 and 34200 – The service is undergoing maintenance, please try again later. (Please note that Diablo III will not be available for play until May 15 at 12:01 a.m. PDT.Error 37 – The server is full. This is likely due to high login traffic. The only solution is to keep trying to log in.

Error 24000
– Once logged in you may run into this error when attempting to start a game. We’re aware and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible.

Error 3004, 3006, 3007, or 300008 – There are a number of possible causes for these errors. We’ve found that one of these suggestions can help.

Error 315300 – If you’re sure you’re typing your correct account information, check to make sure no additional spaces were added before or after your email address. If you’re still running into this issue, there may be an error in your foreign language appdata files. Some players have found a workaround, but please be aware the steps they provide are not something we can currently support. [NowGamer notices that creating a new user account in Windows – with administrator privileges – then restarting your PC and loading the game via the new account appears to be the most widespread fix]

Gray login button – You need to use your Battle.net email address as your account name. Your BattleTag is a nickname, not your account name.

No License Attached – Please create a BattleTag for your account.

Unable to Initalize Streaming – This error can generally be caused by security software on your computer. During this time, however, it’s possible that the error is caused by the number of people hitting the servers. Please double check your firewall settings and try again.

Check out the battle.net forums or Blizzard’s support Twitter account for more fixes.

  1. I fixed my Error 3007 by enabling static NAT and setting my IP as the (NAT) host in my router.

    In Diablo 3, my wife could play fine, but I would be disconnected every 2-5 minutes.
    I remember this being a problem for us back when we played Modern Warfare 2, and it seemed like a very similar situation, as my wife could play fine while I would get constant connection drops/host migration failures.

    After enabling NAT, I can play fine, but I have not yet been able to test if my wife will be fine. I assume she will be the one to get constant disconnects, as, at least in terms of MW2, only one computer on the network could have “Open NAT” and the other would always be prone to the Closed NAT problem.

    I don’t know much about networking, routing, or what this stuff means, but I hope it will help some people with the 3007 error.

    I should mention that a lot of routers seem to have “Dynamic NAT” set up by default, and it seems to automatically assign NAT to the first computer that connects to the network after a reset, which is usually the wired one.

    I should also add that joining General chat while on the character selection screen worked for me to avoid the 3007 DC error, but I was not happy with having to use it because of spoilers and the constant flood of text.
