SC2 install question
 
Hi ! I'm about to get Starcraft2 Wings of Liberty and the extension Heart of the Swarm.
Some of my friends had issues when installing.
As i understood, there are 3 steps :
-Installing the game
-Installing the extension
-Create an account/register with battlenet.

In which order should i do this, or what's the best way to do it correctly ?

I know it could seems like a trivial question, but since lot of my friends told me they had issues, i figured i should ask you guys !

Thanks !

Battlenet first. Then enter your keys and it will download.

So i should go to the battlenet website before even installing anything ? right ?

Correct. Create an account and enter the keys in the games section and it will give you a download link to the installer.

It really doesn't matter the order you do so. You can create your battle.net account while installing the game..... that is assuming you have a physical copy of the game. Otherwise you will have to create your account first.

If you create your account first you'll get the most recent download / version.

well i have the cd copy of the game. Knowing that, should i create the account first, or install the game ?
And, does HotS run "inside" WoL ? Or is it considered like a different program/game ?
Sorry to insist but i really wanna do it well, and avoid fuckin'it up !

Create an account and pop in your cd keys and download the game, HotS is an expansion and has its own exe I believe.

Same EXE for me.

HotS is considered a "mod" so there's only a couple files for it.

Ah, well I don't play SC2 so that was just speculation.
