ATI Radeon HD 4600, 4700, 4800, 5000, 60 series products are unaffected, as is Windows XP.Update: ATI has released a Catalyst 12.4a driver hotfix for the affected cards.The Windows 8 operating system will run both so-called "legacy" applications on the traditional desktop and the new touch/mobile-friendly "Windows 8 style" (formerly) Metro apps available through the Windows Store.Windows RT, for ARM-based devices, runs only the new style apps.For whatever reason, with Internet Explorer set to work offline, the Diablo 3 installer was failing to do anything other than time out.One of the biggest attractions of Windows 8 is Microsoft's effort to bridge the gap between consumer-focused touchscreen devices and business productivity systems.
As a side note, make sure you meet the minimum system requirements (especially the graphics card and CPU/RAM) for playing Diablo III before going through the tutorial!
If you try running the Diablo III file and nothing appears to be happening, check to see if the Windows Service for Secondary Logon is enabled.
The game requires it and will not run if it's disabled. Any other setting should be ok, although we've seen a couple reports of a user needing to use "automatic." Be advised that some security programs, such as AVG, may be switching this service off by default.
The following tutorial will teach Linux users how to install the Diablo 3 game on their open source operating system.
The third installment in the Diablo franchise, Diablo III, is a dark horror/fantasy-themed role-playing game (RPG) developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment.
