Sorry, finally updated the guide. If you have not gotten it to work yet, try running the game in Compatability Mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

I have set both Diablo II.exe and Game.exe to run as administrator, and I am still getting "Failed to retrieve process". I got everything else working, except when I drop in the Median 1.3 files then I start getting this (doing the non-D2SE approach). Anyone find a different solution to this? Everything out there says administrator fixes it, but there must be more to it. Running Windows 10.

Is it also in comparability mode for windows XP (SP3)?

Yes, I have tried XP SP2, XP SP3, and Windows 7 for compatibility modes on both Game.exe and Diablo II.exe at the same time.

Actually, you can run PlugY without D2SE, though it's more complicated to get it work properly with MXL that way.

i followed the directions, except for the fresh install since i still play online. got the error:
"Could not initialize the Modlauncher
There seems to be no VALID Mods/Plugins or there were previous Errors.
I will now Exit! You should install D2SE Modmanager again."

Once D2 is beyond the Median XL supported patch (1.13c) Median XL will not work.
