[Warcraft III] Warcraft III Version Switcher

Post by Yeuyo on Thu Sep 17, 2009 10:18 pm

Having trouble to switch Warcraft III to and from 1.24b since now most custom maps require 1.24b to play yet some custom map only supported by 1.21b?

Well, here's the solution for you guys.

Method 1: Warcraft III Version Switcher
Download Version Switcher, extract and put it in your Warcraft III folder. Then just run it and switch to whatever version you want.

Here are the Warcraft III version I have, feel free to upload any Warcraft III version you have as well.
Note: These are for people with Version Switcher only and they only have to download and put it inside the wvs folder inside the Warcraft III folder and the wvs can help you switch your Warcraft III to and from that version from then on!
Version 1.21b
Version 1.23
Version 1.24b
Version 1.24c
Version 1.24e
Version 1.25b
Version 1.26


Put the file you download into this folder WITHOUT extracting them.

Then open the Warcraft Version Switcher.

Double click any version to switch into it.

Method 2: Prepatch
Download this patcher and put it in your Warcraft III folder and double click it to begin updating your Warcraft III to version 1.24b.

If you are not using a Switcher, but a Patcher instead and having a Install Path error.
Then try follow these guides.

  1. Start Menu --> Run --> Type regedit --> Press Enter
  3. Right click on SOFTWARE key & select New --> Key
  4. Then type Blizzard Entertainment.
  5. Then right click on Blizzard Entertainment & again select New --> Key & type Warcraft III
  6. Then on RHS right click and select New --> String Value & type InstallPath.
  7. Then double click on it type the path of your Warcraft III directory e.g. C:\Program Files\Warcraft III

    If still failed, then carry out this:

  8. Create the same in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1659004503-1993962763-725345543-500\Software
