Approved by Ralle. This can ofcourse be used in illegal situations but is also very helpful when you have reinstalled windows. You don't have to reinstall the game again.

    Brilliant tool! 5 star =)
    Having put together my new pc, I simply copied the WC3/TFT files across from the old one, preferrring to avoid using windows registry where possible. This worked fine up until a new patch was released upon where it could not be installed without the registry info.
    Simply saves reinstalling from scratch if you copy the files to a pc without installing normally.
    For those of you worrying it is not legal, you still need your cd key verified to play on battle.net, which I believe is the most popular use of WC3 anyway.

    I must say, this program saved me from quite a headache (wc3 disc wouldnt properly install, too damaged)

    Illegal?
    I dont think so
    Because if you really want to play the illegal WC3 you can download it in many site with its serial number generator.....so I think this software is more helpful for people who need it rather than to hack it.

    To anyone who doesn't know what this does....
    It most likely changes the registry path that WC3 uses.

    It's nothing illegal, and its something anyone (with registry skills) can do.
    But, honestly, if you don't know what this does...
    1. Don't post here, saying its a hack. It isn't
    2. Don't use it. This edits the registry files, and even if it only does so for WC3, it can still damage the entries, causing problems with the game.

    all it does is set the registries to what they would b anyway if Warcraft III was installed. It would associate files and write the mpq paths. This fixes one of the errors in the Model Editor.

    OMG Thank you so much for creating this wonderful program. I have a cracked version of warcraft (temporary, installing vitals soon lol) and I couldn't use anything barely, well not my fave editors like vertex modify and War3 Editor. You don't know how much you helped me!

    PS will it really cause probs with the game though...? That might be and issue...

    THANKS! I need this badly. Doing install-reinstall of complete Warcraft3+ex can be waste of time when the clock ticks... Thanks again!
