You will get this error when trying to Install a Patch or updating your WC3:TFT.
The reason you get this error is either you have copied WC3:TFT from a dump on another computer or you have somehow lost your registry settings for Warcraft III and now the WC3:TFT cannot load your settings as it does not know the Installation Path to your warcraft a.k.a InstallPath.
To solve this problem follow these steps:
- Click on Start menu, then click on Run, and type in "Regedit" to open registry editor.
- From the Registry Editor, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\Warcraft III
- Right click on the right side of window, and click on New > String Value and name it to InstallPath
- Rightclick on InstallPath and click Modify and enter the Value Data: which is the path to your Warcraft III folder on your hardrive. For example E:\Games\Warcraft III. But you must enter warcraft III folder location on Your HDD as I have my warcraft III installed on different drive and folder
