Aug 15, 2005 Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne Question. Warcraft III and The Frozen Throne patch 1.13 is out. Is there a trojan with this keycraft program? Warcraft 3 rises again with patch 1.27. By Angus Morrison 2016-03-15T11:19:58.74Z. Comments; Shares. The last time Warcraft 3 received a patch was in 2011.
I took a similar approach to CLOBBER, however when I load into TFT and hit the battle net button it downloads the update, I click the button to apply, then an error pops up: Warcraft III.app A battle.net update program, BlizzardPrepatch, could not be launched automatically (-10810). Please launch it manually when the game quits.
My only option is to click the OK button. When I do this, the Warcraft III.app goes back to full screen, and another error in the game is presented: 'There was an error applying the upgrade.' When I attempt to click the 'BlizzardPrepatch' file in the Warcraft III Applications folder, it is not an executable file from my macOS so it just opens it up in a text edit with compiled code showing. 10:39 PMPosted by Greetings.

I am using a iMac running macOS Sierra Versioin 10.12.3 1.27b was working fine. 1.28 did it's thing, and I even restarted my computer per the patch notes recommendations. However when I launch the program either through the Warcraft III App or the 'BlizzardPrepatch' app, both result in an error saying: Warcraft III Warcraft III was unable to find a CD Key. Please reinstall the game from the Warcraft III CD. Same issue as Op, but I'm running Windows 7 64-Bit. Doesn't matter If I start via 'Warcraft III Launcher.exe', 'Frozen Throne.exe' or 'Warcraft III.exe' all results in: Warcraft III Warcraft III was unable to find a CD Key.
Please reinstall the game from the Warcraft III CD. Running Warcraft III Launcher.exe always shows that there is an update available on each run.
Also noted that my save games are still present in the program folder. I think I found the reason. My install was based on a CD install, I think the keys were part of the mpq files which were overwritten by the new patch. I've deinstalled Warcraft III and downloaded: War3-1.27-Installer-deDE-ROC and War3-1.27-Installer-deDE-TFT from my battle.net account and installed it. I noted that there were 3 files, which were not part of my previous installation: roc.w3k tft.w3k user.w3k The First 2 include the serial number (in plain text for whatever reason), these files were not present in my old install, I guess the keys were part of the mpq files which were overwritten by the new 1.28 patch.
