Are you installing the game as an administrator? Have you tried setting the compatibility mode to windows xp and then running as an admin?

We do not support torrenting games or other forms of illegal possession/installation.

If you are trying to install a game which is not legitimate then please ask for help somewhere else.

SC1 you could litterally mash they keyboard to find a legit CD key. I did it when I lost mine out of rage and was surprised it worked.

SC2 has been pirated and is easy to find -_-.

I am having the same issue. error message reads:

The file "C:\Program Files (x86)\StarCraft.temp\Maps.temp\oldladder.temp" could not be renamed to "C:\Program Files (x86)\StarCraft.temp\Maps.temp\oldladder". (ConflictManager::ResolveConflicts/1)


Even when installing as an Administrator.


Edit: I purchased this game directly from blizzard's online store. It is not pirated in anyway shape or form. However it will not install on my computer and blizzard themselves provide absolutely zero help.
