Hey guys.

I'm trying to install HU on my other comp, and I got 1.10 working. After copying all the HU files to the diablo 2 folder, when I try to run the D2Mod Setup I'm met with an error:
"Cannot find required dll.
If Diablo is running you cannot setup this mod.
Quit Diablo and try again"

Diablo isn't running though. Which dll is it looking for particularly? I checked and they all seem to be there...

Thanks in advance.

Open cmd.exe , cd to the d2 folder (unless it's in program files) and paste (or type) the following:

rundll32 .\d2mod.dll,D2ModSetup

Should let you see what is missing.

Hey Zorax, thanks for your response-

what does cd stand for? not compact disc... right? lol

when I try entering "rundll32 ./d2mod.dll,D2ModSetup" into cmd I get the error:
"Error loading ./d2mod.dll", but I see that file in my d2 folder.

EDIT: I think I should add that ever since trying to install D2SE on this comp everything has went ape-shit and it's taken me this long to even get Vanilla to work... I completely removed/uninstalled everything and reinstalled.

Not sure, if you kidding. But cd is a windows command to move through folders in cmd.exe. When you type the command is you're cmd.exe positionned in the d2 folders?

Ok, I CD'd to my d2 folder and entered that command, then I was met with the same error. The error also says:
"If Diablo is running you cannot setup this mod. Quit Diablo and try again"

But Diablo isn't running.. I went to 'processes' in the task manager to verify

There no hints in the cmd windows about the missing dll file?

no, doesn't say anything in the cmd window, just goes to a new blank line. Just opens the alert/error which appears to be coming from the D2Mod Setup.

I've tried re-extracting the HU files again to make sure they're all there..

What's your OS on that machine. Where is D2 installed(if progfiles then move it from there). Are you running admin acc?

On your second attempt, in the right directory, did you use a / or a \ in the command?

edit: Also what Steel said, the previous mentioned program files, you're not trying to install in there?

OS: Vista
D2 is installed in Program Files (where should I move it to then?)
I believe the acc I'm on is the admin, will double check when I get back home. If not, running as admin will accomplish the same task though, no?

Yea, I did it both ways, seemed to work the same either way (got the same error).
