    Download and use the War3 Registry Fixer, if that doesn't work copy the mpqs from the Warcraft III folder 2 the model editor folder.

    Extract it anywhere and then i would suggest copying the contents of the folder (but not the folder itself) into your Warcraft III folder

    Oh my cow!!
    Just click the Windows menu at the top, then click MPQ Browser. Then u locate your MPQs in your Warcraft III folder and open them. Then u can open any in-game models.

    Obviously, I would give it 5/5. Obviously one of the most useful Model Editors, so it would be useful in some cases of model editing. I use it often, so should be useful to others.

    Its obvious that the World Editor required files are missing. Either the map has been protected or has been removed for some other reason. DotA for example cannot be opened because it is opened, and therefore is protected with files being removed.

    You get these, but its the reason of their copyright and not being able to copy their ideas explicitly yet so easily. Hope that explains that.
