You need to have 4 new files in the Diablo 2 directory:

D2MultiRes.txt
D2MultiResGame.exe
D2MultiRes.dll
D2MultiRes.mpq

Don't worry about file name extensions, just copy the files into Diablo and run the exe.

You need to download and install the Diablo 2 High Resolution Mod.

The downloaded "patch" consists of 4 files:

D2MultiRes.txt
D2MultiResGame.exe
D2MultiRes.dll
D2MultiRes.mpq

Copy D2MultiResGame.exe, D2MultiRes.dll and D2MultiRes.mpq to your Diablo II directory. Run D2VidTst.exe (found in your Diablo II directory) and choose the DirectDraw option.

To run, start D2MultiResGame.exe. Diablo II will start in the standard resolution, when playing a game you will be able to switch to a new, higher resolution. To do so, go to the Video Options menu and select the Resolution menu item. This will bring up a new panel that will list your available resolutions. Click the one you wish to play in and Diablo II will switch to that resolution.

I did everything up to the point where I double click on D2 MultiResGame and nothing happened.

Ok then, you need to download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package from Microsoft, here is the link.
