There are few problems when trying to run Windows 7 apps in Windows 8.1, but at one time Diablo III didn't technically support Microsoft's latest OS. If you run into a similar issue, it pays to check on gaming forums, Google, or the game's official support pages whether your game of choice plays nicely with Windows 8.1. (For the record, Blizzard has updated its support page to say Diablo III will run on Windows 8.)
Even though Can You Run It can sometimes get it wrong with operating system details, don't kid yourself. If the site says you can't run a game like Dead Rising 3 because your processor, RAM, or graphics card doesn't make the grade, heed the site's advice and don't waste your money.
