    Well you might have to burn the downloaded .dmg (I assume it's a .dmg) onto a disk. Disk Utility would be a good program to use.

    Can't you play the game without a CD with the latest patch from Blizzard. Check to make sure you have the latest version.

    Everything required to play the game should have been installed. There should be no reason that this error would show up. I'd try reinstalling it. After it's reinstalled, try running the application inside the installed folder.

    That's an interesting install log. It's missing the core file "Diablo II Music" which is why it asks for the Play CD. When installing by CDs, this file is omitted during the install to aid the CD check mechanism (it was always run off the CD) and it should have been installed with the download.

    Did you have an options during the install process for a full install and this is just for Diablo II and not the Expansion, Lord of Destruction?

    Also, to reinstall, just drag the installed Diablo II folder (the one in Applications) to the trash. You can then rerun the installer you downloaded from the store.
