While I'm still on the fence about supporting Diablo 3 with my money, I have no problem supporting it with my brother's money. Since he's away from his machine quite a bit, he told me to give the game a spin on his account.

Since I wanted to avoid downloading the game, I decided I'd fire up the beta client, assuming it would let me know if it's no longer usable or that it would maybe auto-update.

The client claimed to be good to go, but when I tried to log in I got treated to a dialog box that told me "An error has occurred". This informative error was numbered 3014.

Looking around the web, I see that some people claim this error is directly tied to using the beta client, while others claim they are getting this with the most up-to-date client.

So does anyone know what this error actually means? Will dumping the beta client for the new one actually help?

It has been explicitly communicated by Blizzard to remove the Beta before installing the official Diablo 3 release. As I first attempt to solve your problem I would try to get rid of beta client by uninstalling it.

Funny how such a thing gets pushed out of the way by people wondering what the error is when performing a search. Thanks. – Aubergine May 18 '12 at 11:39
