  • If someday you are stuck on "Updating Battle.net Agent"
    « on: July 06, 2014, 10:08:50 PM »
    Hello folks,
    Some of you maybe heard about my struggle with Bnet Agent to make it work on my 2cond computer.Its been gone 3 weeks now. >:(
    I have instaled it on my laptop and worked just fine with no issues, but on the PC desktop...no way!  ???

    So my problem was :

    After running the executable to install the client with the installer, or even running Battle.net from a folder copied from a working PC, starting Battle.net lingers for like a minute then t changes to Updating Battle.net and gets stuck halfway through. If i wait long enough (around 3-4 minutes) I get an error: Whoops! Looks like something is broken etc.
    In addition, the installer tends to create multiple instances of Agent.exe in the process tree, which i can't close with end process. It sometimes creates more than 3 copies of Agent.exe.

    What i have done :


    -Deleting Battle.net and Blizzard related folders in ProgramData, ProgramFiles(x86), Appdata and trying to install again.
    -Copying these folders from another computer which runs HS normally.
    -Using another network or using Google DNS.
    -Disabling Firewall/Avast Antivirus
    -Cleanup with CCleaner & Malwarebytes
    -Deleting Battle.net related registry keys before reinstalling.
    -Resetting Internet Explorer settings and proxy settings.
    -ipconfig /release and ipconfig /new in cmd.
    -winsock reset in cmd.
    -Updating Adobe Flash
    -Enabling Secondary Logon
    -Tried Selective startup
    -Tried installing in safe mode
    -Tried basically everything in the official troubleshooting pages.
    -Replaced the folder in ProgramData with the folder downloded from the manual patching page.
    -Firewall, Proxy, Router and Port Configuration: adding TCP and UCP ports

    Results:

    Nothing !









    SOLVED:

    Completely deleting Avast antivirus solved the problem.

    PS.
    I use Avast on my laptop also, and worked from the first time without disable anything and without doing nothing.

    Glad you have been able to fix this problem. It can be soooo frustrating, especially if everything looks the same on both computers.
