How to fix: Diablo 3 “Blizzard Update Agent has stopped working”
In a rather interesting blog post today, Rick Brewster (the developer of Paint.NET) sheds light on an interesting bug in Diablo III setup program. Apparently, Blizzard Update Agent does not support multiprocessor systems. Rick has solved this problem by manually adjusting the processor affinity of the setup program.
Interestingly enough, Rick describes his epiphany as “some Raymond Chen style psychic insight”. Smart readers definitely know the difference between that and some Mark Russinovich-style psychic insight. From a scientific point of view, at this point of time, these two are different.
