Anywhere to still get Warcraft 2 legitimately?

Blizzard doesn't have it on their website anymore, not even under classics, and I can't find it anywhere else so far. I want to experience the campaign one more time. I don't care about multiplayer. I thought my prayers had been answered when I found War2Custom, but that was just for the multiplayer only. Does anyone know where I can find this, and if I will have any issues trying to get it to play on Windows 7 Ultimate?

eBay. Looks like the going price is around $25.

@gsf4lyfe, you must be the newest "Ancient" here if you don't know the stance the mods tend to take on anything even remotely illegal.

No, that's an excuse pirates came up with to try and feel better about themselves. Just a load of crap.

And Amazon would say otherwise about that being your "only options."

Blizzard probably took it off because it became too annoying to make it work with newer OS.

Hmmm... I'm a little wary of buying them on disc, especially used. What are the chances that they will be in fully playable condition? I was kinda looking for just somewhere to download it. If I don't find anything, though, I'll give amazon and ebay some consideration. Thanks everyone!

Amazon has some copies - new, sealed - for $60, unless you're looking at the Battle Chest.

Chances are good, if they're being sold, they're in playable condition tho.

You're not going to find any legal place to download it.
