I tried with Vista and XP 64 bit and they both say Download not authorized.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Are you logged in?  Did the store accept your CD key?  Does it show you a new CD key?  The OS itself is irrelevant if you're just trying to download the file.  Clear your cache and cookies, log in, make sure the game has you registered, and try again!

Can you take a screenshot of the exact error that occurs?

Do you still need the CD to play?

avatar

TheMurph

Nope -- newest patch eliminates that requirement.  \m/

Lawrence Chang

yay thx.

 

I had a D2 Expansion CD key sitting around and no cd >:)

 

 

Blah, it still prompted me to "insert" disc when installing D2 Exp. Whats the point of downloading it anywhere you want when you still need the disc -_-.

I would assume that you have to download both D2 and D2:LoD for it to work sans disc.  But it should -- it would be stupid to have a direct-download service that requires a CD for install.

Try downloading/installing both, and let me know if that works!

omg! im so dumb...hahah i forgot D2 was required for D2 Expansion! Yea... I thought it was pretty stupid to have this service if you still needed the CD! Thx for the help again.

Same here.

Been awhile since I've played through D2. Good opportunity to rediscover it.

Wow, great tip. I had to dig a bit to figure out where to enter my CD keys but it worked like a charm.

Long live digital distribution!

I suppose my next task will be to find a way to get these oldies running on Vista 64.

Well I'm running VISTA64 and I have had no problems so far...
