    Little confused here. You had $60 to buy D3 but not $30 to bring yourself up to an 18-month-old operating system?

    You can't, to my knowledge, just copy the OS X installation of D3 to Windows and expect it to run; the binaries are different.

    Yes, you can copy the installation because the only part that is platform specific is the client. All of the data is exactly the same.

    You will have to save your diablo 3 data folder to a flash drive that is around 20 gigs, then go into windows and download the diablo 3 setup and let it install more than 10%. After 10% it will start downloading, you can now exit the launcher and replace everything in the data folder with the data folder from osx. Restart the launcher and let it download any updates and the windows client.

    Also if you are on a slow connection turn off p2p in the launcher options before you exit the first time.
