Hi everyone.

I aquired the 'Program Files' folder from my friend. It includes Warcraft 3 and the Frozen Throne. I put it in the following directory C:\Program Files\Blizzard Entertainment\Warcraft III.

I then applied the 1.22 patch and installed w3l.exe and w3l.dll into the above folder. I then put BNGatewayEditor.exe into the same folder. I opened it and added (Twilight Server). i set it as chosen.

Then I opened w3l.exe and Frozen Throne started up. I clicked on (I made sure that the magnifying glass was set on Twilight). It started downloading the update. Once it was done it said that I must click the 'Restart' button. Once i clicked it I get an error.

"Blizzard PrePatch v2.70 compiled on Jul 7 2003
This program patches Warcraft 3

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

RESULT: Prepatch failed"

Please help me out.. I want to play local servers (Im capped). Perhaps it could be a registry problem because I didn't install the game.

waiting for your reply...
