Can't access to World Editor?

  1. I have the CD of it. I installed the patch 1.20c. It was all good even if you run the RoC or TFT. But I cannot access the World Editor. I have that worldedit.exe or whatever you call it. It always gets an error by saying that I inserted a wrong CD. What CD am I supposed to insert in to my CD-Rom? I inserted the TFT one but it doesn't work.

  2. Additional Details:
    I tried clicking Battle Net but an error says:

    Unable to validate game version.
    Please reconnect to Battle.Net or apply the current game patch manually.

  3. Additional Details:
    I have tried patching to the latest version (1.23) but this is what it says:

    Blizzard PrePatch v2.70 compiled on Jul 7 2003
    This program patches Warcraft 3

  1. Try to download the latest patch (just go to in your game), the patch 1.22b no longer requires cd to play

  2. You can uninstall the whole game and reinstall it, you do not have to go to the Blizzard website for updates(When you're on the game menu, simply click and it updates everything automatically if your computer is connected to the internet). The World Editor should be working.
    Extra Notes that might help you:
    -If you have many custom maps, you may want to save them in another folder before uninstallation.
    -Try the World Editor before you try connecting to after uninstallation.
    -Make sure you have no other programs on that may interfere with WcIII's performance.
    -If you get this error again, manually go to the site and get the latest patch(some patches require steps before installation).

  3. This error sometimes occurs when changes are made to the folder Warcraft III is installed in. If, for example, you moved several files out of the directory and restored them later, or changed the folder name, some files may no longer be linked properly since the system registry still points to the old folder(s).

    I suggest completely uninstalling and reinstalling the game, starting from Reign of Chaos. If still sends you a message claiming your game version is invalid, register your CD key on the Blizzard website to make sure you have a legal copy.

  4. Maybe you should download the World Editor with the crack.
