Try running your install as administrator, if this doesn't work throw your PC out of the window.

download the installer from your account page and point it to the folder with the already downloaded stuff in it and you will be able to install.

Download new downloader from account profile. Copy your old setup file to desktop. And start download again with old file. It will download 50mb :) and will fix

It started to install......thank God
i have this problem not installed:(
Installed succesfully
This works - do it.
Still doesn't work for me..

I moved the installer to the folder i downloaded the stuff in but it does not work:(

Someone know what I can do?
Some of the downloaders were faulty (German and EU English, I think), so if you are trying to get the German or EU English versions of the game, go get the new downloader (Via Game Clients Download), and then run the new file. That should download the last 50-odd megs and you should be able to install.
I think you misunderstand Selku:

* Go to your Battle.net Account page
* Download the game client downloader again
* Run the downloader and it will ask you where you want to store the files. !Choose the original folder you initially downloaded the game to!

It will then check the 7GB of data you already have, update what is missing and successfully start the install.
