Registry error loading key 'Warcraft III\InstallPath'

1) Retrieving the cd-key

So u lost the game manual with the cd-key on it... There are a non-legit programs to retrieve lost cd-keys from the game.

So u still have v1.18.

For the cd-key grabber: http://www.securegamers.com/shadowfr...abber11800.exe

Of course u can get another key from Blizzard the Legit Way.

2) Just move the game back to C:\Program Files\

3) To have it where ever u want:

So ur game is still on the other partition/harddisk.

U can config a lot o stuff with regedit, especially in Windows itself, by the way.

When u move the game to an other directory the registry files remain unchanged.

The v1.19 patch at least needs to know where the game is located(from InstallPath).

So u need to use the Registry Editor and just rename those registry files' directories.

But if u don't know how to do this stuff ... well ...


Start -> Run Type: regedit
My Computer -> HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Blizzard Entertainment -> Warcraft III

Warcraft III:

InstallPath = from C:\Program Files\Warcraft III in D:\Warcraft III for example.

Program = from C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\Warcraft III.exe in D:\Warcraft III\Warcraft III.exe for example.

War3CD = E:\ no change needed.

Warcraft III -> DelOpt0(Savegames)

Path0 = C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\save

Path1 = C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\save

Path2 = C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\save
Warcraft III -> DelOpt1(Replays)

Path0 = ...
Warcraft III -> DelOpt2(Logs)

Path0 = ...

Path1 = ...

Path2 = ...

Path3 = ...
Warcraft III -> DelOpt3(Errors)

Path0 = ...

The rest of those registry files u see there are fine.
