Angry Registry error loading key 'Warcraft III\InstallPath'

ok, the problem is that when i format my window, i just move my war3 to my secondary hd and ever reinstall it. I can play bnet game fine, but now I can't update to 1.19. I will get this:

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


anyone one know how to work my way around it? I cant reinstall it b/c I cant find both of the cdkey....

Thanx

But now I see that those registry files i specified are gone from registry too if u formatted the boot partition.

Hi dude,

I was wondering if you could help me out. I have installed both of them on my comp for the last 10 years or so, well since whenever reign came out. i move allot and have trasfered the files between harddrive to computer back and fourth. i dont seem to be able to find either of my cdkeys (im now in college and never thought i would need it again, iv always been able to run from my external hard drive when in trouble)

since the last update, i think i have 1.21b successfully installed, i cant update further. it gives me an error (i dont know if i skipped some files during my last transfer between hardrives or something) saying :::


================================================

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

Log created at 8:23 pm on 06/13/2008

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


RESULT: Prepatch failed

================================================

i looked around for an newer version of the file you mentioned that retrives your cdkey but cant find one. hence i am having trouble reisntalling. also i had not run an update on bnet since i think christmas.

any help would be great. thanks

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 3 folder is e.g mines is C:\Program Files\Warcraft III

hope this helped!

Thanks for the tip, however
I am using Vista and I am not able to reinstall the game, it gives me error :
No program start menu found.

i have installed it previously by coping the game
is there any reg file that I can import?
