Visual C++ runtime error when trying to patch Starcraft 2
I was away from my computer for around seven months, and very little was changed in it while I was gone. Upon return, I tried to run Starcraft 2, and when the patcher came up I immediately received a runtime error, a snip of which can be seen here:
No other program on my computer is showing any problem. It is impossible to play Starcraft without patching, and I am stuck. In the course of trying to fix this, I have already:
-Updated my video drivers
-Scanned my HD for errors
-Defragged my HD
-Made sure I have all important Windows Updates
-Reinstalled/repaired all of the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages that I could find
-Run a registry fix
-Run virus scans with several different programs
-Tried to reinstall the program from the disk
-Reinstalled and run the program in safe mode with networking
-Made a new administrator account and installed there
-Tried running it in a clean boot
All of this has been to no avail. I tried to get the patch and update manually, and while the updater does not receive the error, it just runs indefinitely, over and over again with no results.
Unfortunately I do not have a helpful System Restore point. Any help would be much appreciated. I have been back and forth for a couple of days with Blizzard support on this and they are as baffled as I am.
