    Patch 1.24 won't update

    Hey everyone, before I get started I'd like to say this is a great site and to keep it up! Good work everyone.

    So when I open up War3 TFT, I click Battle.Net and it does little download thing, once it finishes it says I have to hit the restart button, so I do it. Then the next thing that shows up is this:

    Blizzard BNUpdate v2.133 compiled on Aug 14 2008
    Log created at 11:40 am on 08/05/2009
    This patch upgrades Warcraft III The Frozen Throne from the previous version.
    Registry error loading key 'Warcraft III\InstallPath'
    The system cannot find the file specified.



    RESULT: Patch failed
    I'm running Windows XP, on an Administrator account, and I don't think I've ever had any problems like this before. Thanks.

    That does not mean you cannot reinstall, that simply means you cannot patch, alien88. And the error may be due to the fact that WC3 1.24 will have major engine adjustments, hence some maps will not work properly. It is best for you to either reinstall WC3 or delete the map for as long as you install the patch.

    im not sure if this exactly helps but once the files are uploaded and available on the official battle.net site then try manually downloading the 1.24 patch and running it to try and patch wc3
    otherwise reinstall if you dont want to wait

    Registry error loading key 'Warcraft III\InstallPath'

    Search at google for a WC3 registery fix or manually create a registery key to your install directory.

    @alien88
    Try deleting the mentioned map (make a backup of it) and run the patch again.


    Edit: Uploaded the registry fix for you.

    If you still need help with this then follow these steps.

    1. Click Start>Run and then type in regedit, click ok.

    2. find your warcraft 3 folder in well mines said hkey_current_user>software>blizzard entertainment>Warcraft III

    3. now right click the right window and go on new>string value and rename it into InstallPath.

    4. Now right click it and put in where your warcraft folder is e.g mines is C:\Program Files\Warcraft III

    hope this helped!
