I've formated my pc and reinstalled Win7 64bit. I was playing Starcraft II without problems before and wanted to install it now as well (of course ;) ).
However I got the problem that I'm unable to start the game. After installation it'll start the Starcraft 2 Blizzard Downloader / Patcher and shortly after that switches to the Blizzard Updater. After a moment it is done and then nothing really happens when I try to start the game, neither clicking the shortcut, .exe file or trying to go at it via the Starcraft II CD the game just won't start (or not even the launcher itself).
For a moment my cursor will change to a loading animation and a Starcraft II.exe process will appear in the task manager (but vanish shortly after). I don't even see any SCII screen flashing up or anything. And as I mentioned in the thread title it won't display an error message either.
I am however able to patch the file via a direct Patch Installer exe. E.g. I just used the sc2-1.3.4-enGB file to patch it to the newest version.
Yet my problem persists.
Completely disabling my firewall and anti-vir (Avast) didn't help either.
I should probably mention though, that I did format multiple times, and at one point I tried to install Starcraft II immediately before doing much else. And it did work that one time. However I wanted to install it to a different location (" C:\Games\" instead of the standard "C:\Program Files (86x)") and well that ended up not working again. Trying to reinstall it on the standard folder again didn't do it then either.
Is there some way I can make a complete clean deinstall by removing something in the registry? I doubt that causes my problem though but may be worth a try.
But reinstalling isn't successful at all so far. Neither from disc nor from the downloaded file.
I made some screenshots and uploaded those at imageshack:
(1st: completed install; 2nd: the auto patch/update thereafter; 3rd: auto-switch to the Blizzard updater (after that one finishes Starcraft II won't start!); 4th: just to show it did install; 5th: what happens when I click the shortcut / exe (the process appears but nothing else happens); 6th: patching with the previously mentioned file
Also created a DxDiag file:
Well I really hope you can help me somehow. Reformatting my PC for the 4th time and ending up with similar issues isn't really what I want so I hope you can figure it out :/
Thanks in advance!
