I'm guessing you may have to tell the game to run in compatibility mode. According to sources, LoD might run on your computer but might not. I suggest telling it to run in Windows XP SP2/3 compatibility mode. That might help.

Also, read this thread:
Will windows 7 run diablo 2 lord of destruction - PC-Gaming - General

If you still cannot get it to run and have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you could download the Windows XP Mode virtual system and attempt to play it that way.

It requires enabling Windows XP/SP3 compatibility mode on its executable.

Right Click > Properties

you need either Windows 7 pro or ultimate versions for XP Mode

XP Mode is geared for Enterprise/Corporate to run legacy apps within Windows 7 thus making the transition from older versions of Windows to Windows 7 easier....not GAMING so don't feel you are missing out on gaming because you can't use XP Mode

your best bet is to use compatibility mode like others have mentioned

Alright so Went to properties compatibility and followed all the instructions... changed it to WSPK3 than proceded to start the game... it then tells me to run D2VDTST... did that... same problem it said cannot run Diablo2 then went to start game again... same message about D2VDTST... I also did the whole compatibility troubleshooting thing... it just recommended SPK2 and then i tried again same problem... No UE anymore...


Just wondering could it be that my computer is hooked through HDMI to my 47 inch TV?
