Try copying that .mpq file to your Diablo II folder on your hard drive manually from the Diablo II CD.

I am having the same problem. When I try to install it, it says that there is something wrong with my d2char.mpq file. If I try to copy it from the cd to the hard drive, it wont becuase some error will happen. Cannot read or something. Can I download a new d2char.mpq file and put it in the d2 dir. before installing? Will it work?

If you have any problems with the installation program not copying any MPQ files from the disc you should manually copy all the MPQ files from the CD into your Diablo 2 folder.

yeah but what happens if it gives the "cyclic redundancy" error when u try copying d2char.mpq from the CD to your harddrive?

Try getting another copy of the game and install from it but use your original CD Key. See if you can install your disc on another computer - if you can determine whether it is the disc or cd rom you might could make a better decision.

I had the same problem and have solved it! Well I got help from Blizzard, but it worked! I knew it had a link with windows. I have CD games in good working order and that I have had since diablo II came out. What the issue is that something on your computer is blocking the d2char.mpq to be downloaded. You need to find that "thing." Now, I downloaded both games and installed them from the digital downloads. I have not tried the CDs. I did have the same problem occurring prior to the changes that I made to fix the problem with the digital downloads.

1.) Turn off windows firewall. (you can find out later how to make diablo II and LOD an exception for blocking)
2.) Make sure to have up to date versions of any other virus checkers you may have
3.) Find a norton virus tool remover. Any of those virus checkers like that see if there is an official remover for it. I have not had norton on my computer in a long time, but after I did that I saw an immediate difference.
4.) Make sure your account is administrator. If not, create another login and make that an administrator.
5.) Try downloading it from the battle. net site with a digital download to make sure that there is nothing wrong with your CDs

Overall: Need to find out what is blocking the installation. Hope this helps!

I hope you realize this thread is almost 10 years old.
This is pretty much the worst necro i have ever witnessed on this forum.
But as this was your first post in the forums, welcome aboard.

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
