LOD is an expansion so when you install it you have to use the diablo 1 CD (it works on windows 7 believe me)

hoped this helped :D

k i just reinstalled mine. first it after you install diablo 2 and you have the LOD install started, half way through it asks that you use the diablo2 "play disc" which is disk 2 of the diablo 2 disks then it will ask for the lod cd again

thats how it worked for me

If you figure out an answer let me know. Diablo 2 plays fine, but i cant get LOD to play at all. Gives me the same message. Ive looked online and cant find a answer.

OH heres something a might as well ask.

did you buy the LOD CD from a place like gamestop to replace your original?

I did this with my starcraft brood war (my original was on one disk and it was to scratched), but the replacement one (looked exactly the same the mine) but required a second disk because it was an older version

if that's the case then you might as well just buy a new Diablo battlechest somwhere

I didn't have any problems loading on win7. Both 32bit (My laptop) and 64bit (my desktop). My desktop gives me some minor graphical issues during game play but nothing that impacts it to much. Make sure UAC is off is the only other suggestion I have. Both times I set it up for full install.

D2 Lod has 2 discs, 1 for the game and 1 for the expansion.

If you dont have both discs you cant install the game.

You will need to swap between both discs to install the exp.

If your having trouble installing it, make sure you have active X installed, do a run (under options) to make sure your computer can handle it)

If the error *please insert disk 1* come up try changing disks and see if that works.

? My copy of LoD had only one disk. I needed to use my D2 play disk as well inorder to install it however. I have one of the older copies.

I wonder if at some time the battlenet updateded the game to the newer verison and it doesn't recognize the old lod disk anymore...
seems legit :S

Try reinstalling the full (or multiplayer if I remember) option. You will need to swap cd's a few times during the installation but that's normal. You will also need to have the Play Disc in your drive in order to play. I installed D2 LOD on my laptop last year and it worked just fine, except a few graphical glitches after the game starts. There's no reason to suspect Bnet. The patch will download automatically after you first log to Bnet so it's not connected to the installation.

If you copy all the .mpq files off the play disk and put them in the main/root diablo II directory then you no longer need the play disk in the drive. Read the read me notes for the latest patch.

And FYI, I just hit the Kurast and found out you need to go through the Great Marsh now. You used to be able to avoid it as it was basically a chance to level up if you needed it. But to get all of Kalims parts you need to go there.
