How to fix Warcraft 3 Registry Error | InstallPath Error

Advertisements:



I see a lot of players saying that they can not install Warcraft 1.24d patch due to the Registry error loading key 'Warcraft III\InstallPath' Error. This error occurs when you don't have original copy of Warcraft or you don't have registry entries created for Warcraft 3. You can make your registry entries manually by using Windows Registry Editor!.

How to make Warcraft 3 Registry Entries:

1. Open up regedit (start > run > regedit)
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertainment\
3. Create new key, name it 'Warcraft III' (without quotes)
4. On right side of new key entry, right click and create new string value
5. Name it 'InstallPath' (without quotes)
6. Change the value of InstallPath to wherever you installed it (example: 'c:\warcraft 3\')
7. Reinstall Warcraft 1.24d Patch. (this time your war3 will be installed without any errors)
8. Enjoy! your Warcraft is patched to 1.25b

If your too lazy to go to the website above, download it here http://www.engamers.com/download/warcraft/WC3Setup.zip. Again very simple dont need to do anything 2 steps literally.
1) find your WC3 folder
2) execute,enter,mouse click, You get it

__________________________________

Afet navigating to CURENT_USER above workeed. Only it didnt do first ttime cuz of checksum error so i had tto run patch 1.23 again. After that worked.

It was in Vista so if anyone says it doesnt work they are doing somthin wrong.

Christian said...

My warcraft 3 data is corrupted. I cannot edit my unprotected map. Can someone help me how to fix this thing?

Anonymous said...

I try it. Tha Patch was installed, but when you go to the game and try to connect to BNet its giving me a FATAL ERROR

allintimyng said...

thanks! got it to work.

I had to create a Blizzard Entertainment key as well.

for people getting the checksum error, I'm assuming you used the patch switcher downloaded from this site. I did and was having a problem. I switched back to the old version then downloaded the patch on the game and it worked fine.

iAurOx - Ru Chern said...

Some idiots think that they are very smart...

Its under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE NOT HKEY_Current_User

Kito said...

Worked for 1.24b !

Created it on current user

PS: Running Vista 64bits here

W said...

I still can't patch cause it says something about install drive error.
Is the TFT 1.24b patch and the W3 1.24b patch different?

W said...

Another problem, i finally could execute the patch properly then this problem came up.
_________________________________________________________

Error: Unable to apply patch to file 'Abilities\Spells\Items\Alsp\SpeedTarget.mdx

Does patching from 1.21 to 1.24b have anything to do with it? Coz my TFT is 1.21.

Anonymous said...

What exactly do u mean by "Change the value of InstallPath to wherever you installed it (example: 'c:\warcraft 3\')" where i installed what?
this is where im stuck.

It can work with any version, and yes Blizzard Entertainment can also be in Current_User, when u click on blizz ent. create Edit>>New>>Key and name it "Warcraft III", that's if u dont already have it autom. You'll see "Default REG_SZ" on the right, right click the last field to the right and click new > string value, enter "InstallPath" as a name, when u create it, right click on "the name" and click Modify, then enter the game install folder path, Cheers :)

stup it in the hkey_current_user/software

menno said...

Nederlands XP:
1) Uitvoeren --> Regedit

2) HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Blizzard entertainment --> Warcraft III (klik op mapje verder niets).

3) Rechterknop in witte scherm --> Nieuw --> Tekenreekswaarde

4) noem het dat ding InstallPath, dubbel klik erop en dan komt er zo hokje tevoorschijn.

5) Als het goed is kan je alleen in de onderste regel iets schrijven, typ hier de locatie van je warcraft III map in
(bij mij D:\Program Files\Warcraft III)

6) PATCH, done

here is a program for those who do not know how to use deal with regstries till, are lazy, or scared of it playing with the registry "http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/tools-560/warcraft-iii-registry-fixer-1-0-a-62929/" I use it when ever my hard drive kicks or when I run wc3 off a portable hard drive during the time between classes at college.

I want to keep my Frozen Throne separate from my Warcraft RoC folder in registry because my TFT is cracked and RoC is real version, and I can't reinstall TFT to be compatible with RoC it causes problems and doesn't work out.

How to I get the path patch to the update to TFT and not in my RoC "Warcraft III" Folder? Can I change the patching path to my "Warcraft III TFT" Folder? If so, how?
