My cd-key was disabled, so I bought a new one. Then I had to reinstall the game. The problem is that, on a Mac, unless I'm wrong, there is no way to uninstall something other than throwing it in the trash (the folder of the game, not the Mac). So I did that. But when I try to reinstall, the installer only offers me to play the game, as if it were already installed. And of course, it doesn't work.
What is the solution?

I read the thing. I understand Diablo II falls in the category of the old-fashioned program file + other files. So they say I must put everything in the trash to uninstall the game. But unless some Diablo files are hiding in my computer, I'm pretty sure everything is in the trash.
An interesting fact, when I run the installer and press "Play Diablo II", the installer knows where the file is:
" The file "/Users/Simon/.Trash/Diablo II/Diablo II (Carbon)" could not be opened."
He knows the file is in the trash! How does he know? Should I empty the trash as well? I'm afraid it still wouldn't install and there would be no way to play anymore. At least now I can play in Single Player...

I'm not too awesome with Macs, so I would normally tell you to try and empty the trash, because even if it does break the game, there's always a way to fix things... But you can wait for i_mass_ents, he's the Mac guy around here, :).
Edit the Subject of your first post to like: "[MAC] Unable to install D2" or something, so he knows to check this out.
