Hey guys, been a while.

So I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and it's been giving me all sorts of issues. I'm running everything in compatibility mode with XP, and I still continue to get the same error. I get this when trying to run the D2ModSetup

There was a problem starting .\d2mod.dll

The specific module could not be found


I read through all of the windows 7 help stuff but there was only one mention of this and no one said how it could be fixed. Can anyone offer me any help? I would really like to start playing again :(

What directory do you have this installed?

The error message displayed is saying that in the folder were you ran D2ModSetup.bat, there is no d2mod.dll file, or at least that the program looking for it was not allowed to find it.

If it's not there, then let us know since it's a pretty small and easily transferred file.

If it's there, then consider searching the forum for the solutions (for Vista OS, but worth trying) other people have found for this problem.

I use Win7 too (Starter Ed.), and aside from graphical glitches (I had to disable Desktop Composition) it's been working fine. I do run under the Administrator account though, so all programs I run are allowed to do or destroy whatever they want.

I think I recall that error when I had it in program files when I switched from vista (where it didn't matter as long as you gave your self all privileges) to windows7 (where that did not work). and had to have the install in C/HU or on the desktop like others have done.
