    Help installing d2exp 1.07

    Hi,
    i'm looking for some help for a d2exp 1.07 installation.

    Right now i'm stuck and don't know what to do. Here is my problem :
    I don' thave any d2 cds available, but i registered them years ago on the blizzard store, so i have access to both installers (1.12a) and cdkeys.
    Those installers include a no-cd patch that i need.
    So i installed that 1.12a version, took the 1.07.zzz files (Trenshadow version switcher) and applied it.

    Now got 2 problems :
    - The no-cd patch isn't working anymore, took an old 1.07 *deleted* in replacement in order to play without cds. Seems ok but maybe is that the bugging part
    - Compatibility issues with windows7 (compatibility tool is saying that it should work with windows xp SP2). It seems i can launch game (but crashing often), and sometimes i can reach main screen but clicking on SP just crash game again.

    Some people can give me some hints to help me playing 1.07 ?
    Thanks in advance

    I think the D2 Expansion started with 1.09, so you can't play the expansion in 1.07.

    A clean cd install of D2 + D2 LoD will give you version 1.07.

    I think the only way to play 1.07 without any mods is by installing from the original game CD's. The version available at the Blizzard Store is 1.12 wich is the first version that is playable without having a Diablo 2 CD in your cd-drive.

    Please do not post about loaders here. We don't accept their use here because often they come 'extras' which we do not allow in the MP/trade pool.

    PM me before you seek to MP/trade here.

    I suggest a clean install and if you check the Stickies there is a link to Blizzards ftp site which has previous versions.

    However, ONLY 1.12a onwards supports disc-less play, prior to that you could mount it using a virtual device EG Daemon but you would need to google that. I have no idea if it would work in 1.07.

    Frankly in your position, I'd just buy another copy of the disks. They're pretty cheap and if you have your CD keys you could even use second hand disks not new ones.

    That's incorrect - the original expansion CD was 1.07.

    Thanks for the replies, don't have internet at home for another 3 weeks :/

    Thyiad i will think about buying another set of cds, but i already bought 4 on my d2 career, and cds still broke as fast :p

    Will try to get hands on a friend's cd for mounting an .iso on deamon.

    Thanks
