Great. I don't even have the damn CD cover for Warcraft 3 anymore...just the damn CD.

Am I totally screwed now?

Everything was installed via WC3 first then Frozen Throne on top of it.

Nothing I can do?

I got this from this website. Tried and work with the patch. Good Luck. Disclaimer: THis is Dota Utilities guide not mine.

How to make Warcraft 3 Registry Entries:

1. Open up regedit (start > run > regedit)

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 1.24 Patch. (this time your war3 will be installed without any errors)

I got this error when trying to patch warcraft 3.

Registry error loading key 'Warcraft III\InstallPath'
The system cannot find the file specified.


RESULT: Prepatch failed

This might be due to me copying and pasting the entire warcraft 3 file from a friend. I am unable to simply reinstall the entire game because I only have frozen throne expansion and not warcraft Reign of Chaos. Any idea how I can update it to 1.24 without reinstalling? I copied and pasted the entire file so Blizzard/WC3 does not appear on my registry as well.

to install the 1.24 patch, do you need to have the full version of warcraftIII?

Hi Guys, I have installed the patch successfully but cannot connect to battlenet. gives me the following error.
"You may be trying to connect to an invalid battle.net server. If you are using a modem, you may need to manually connect to the internet before connecting to Battle.net"

I have checked in BNGatewayEditor to detect the server and it connects.

I am lost????

hi...before upgrading to 1.24b i do not have any problems up to 6.61c but after upgrading to version 1.24.1.6374 (1.24b) i was not able to create any map of 6.62 to 6.63b having those map pasted at the correct directory. Even in Garena i am able to see games but not able to join in (auto-kicked not by host but automatically). i tried creating it myself but as i said, i am not able to see any 1.24b maps. SERIOUSLY NEED HELP. i tried reinstalling both garena and warcraft 3 already. pls note that there is no problem in V 1.21

Thx I got the patch now after adding the reg value !
Its silly how Blizzard made it a tad difficult
I've included a link to the Reg file fix !
This creates a reg file to the Default install Path C:\Program Files\Warcraft III for those noobs who do not know what to do copy the link below into your browser
www.tiny.cc/bxm
You can also scan the file with an Antivirus scanner to check for viruses before you download !
Download WarIIIReg..zip open wuth Winzip and open WarIII.reg.
A Popup from Registry Editor will ask you to add the information to the registry click OK ! Install the Patch and your set!!
I was also wondering what other reasons why people receive errors there are many and I doubt any1 can help every single problem !
But I guess the main error that occurs when installing patches is that people are not downloading the correct patch or dont know what version they have installed on their warcraft ! Not to mention all the installations using No cd cracks !
FYI the newest patch of War3 TFT doesnt require a CDROM inserted which means theres no need for a NO CD crack or ISO mount anymore !
Hope this helps
Happy Gaming PPL

if you cant patch war3 because of this error:

you must remove war3.exe and rename war3.120e to war3.exe then start patch. any other errors:

All those with the BNUpdate.exe problem while they're patching, I think I know your problem! Try right-clicking on the Prepatch and 'Run as Administrator'. I solved my problem by doing this! If it doesn't work, well I hope you find a way through your problem.

P.S. Follow the Regedit thing for all those with the InstallPath problem. It works too!

Well I hope I helped

Open Registry Edit: Start > Run > regedit

Find install path: My computer > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > software

Create the first folder:
Right Click within the "SOFTWARE" registry key (folder) and click:
New > Key > Name it "Blizzard Entertainment"

Create the second folder:
Right Click within the "Blizzard Entertainment" registry key (folder) and click:
New > Key > Name it "Warcraft III"

Create the install path:
Right Click within the "Warcraft III" registry key (folder) and click:
New > String Value > Name it "InstallPath"

Modify the install path:
Right Click on the "InstallPath" string value and click:
Modify > Name it the place in your computer directory that the Warcraft III folder can be found.
You must add an additional \ next to every \ that gives the location of the directory. Apparently its a registry rule. Example:
C:\Documents and Settings\flyerfye\Desktop\Warcraft III
becomes
C:\\Documents and Settings\\flyerfye\\Desktop\\Warcraft III

Now "OK" out of everything and close your Registry Editor > Run Warcraft III > Connect to Battle.net > Let it update and restart.
