    1.Go to Start > Run > type regedit
    2. Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Shell Folders"
    3. If there is no string in there called "Programs" create a string called "Programs" by right-clicking and choose New -> String Value .
    4. Right click your new String called "Programs" and put in "C:\" in the Data Value.
    5. Now look for a string called "Desktop" , if there is none then create it. (Follow step 3 but name it "Desktop" instead of "Programs". Remember to put "C:\" as data value..

    Now the game will install and it will run as well :)

    Enjoy!

    Just go to blizzard.com make an account, enter your cd key and download it. Works great.

    I installed Diablo 2 on Vista 64 bit with NO issues, just put the CD in and installed it...

    Not sure why you are having an issue ?

    go to www.blizzard.com and find where you make an account. From there you register your CD Key and then down load the software. Once you make an account and provide the CD key it keeps it so you can download it again if you have to re format or whatever. It is not hard finding the area to create the account, I am not your mom and will not do it for you.

    No, it is not FREE. You can register your D2, LoD and StarCraft (Broodwar) keys on Blizzard with your own account and you will get a BlizDownloader which downloads D2 (+LoD) and installs it without using your CD.

    Go to Blizzards main site, then to the Bliz Store and make an account. After that, register your games and the downloader will be available.

    D2 runs great on Vista 64 here btw, still refreshing my lvl 99 sorc now and then. :banana:

    EDIT: Rochin beat me to it. :)

    LOL chill out mom, take your hormone pills...I'm at work and can't look at Blizzards site right now due to an internet filter on games. Only reason I posted was "download Diablo 2" caught my eye. ;)

    Sorry about that, I failed to notice because lack of avatar I was not speaking to the OP. He asked for the link and how to do stuff. I retract my statement.
