    I have the same problem, if the game does show up on other computers you click on it, it sits there then says cannot join specified game. And I made sure it was allowed thru the firewall. No luck still, got the new patch and everything, it used to work and now it won't. Any ideas?

Do you use a firewall?
If yes, have you tried it while your firewalls are deactivated (on both computers)? If it works with the deactivated firewall, find out whether the firewall prevents the application from using the network (unlikely) or whether it prevents specific ports from being used.

Without any applications running, start a cmd window.
Type "netstat -a" (without the quotes).
Now start Warcraft and create a new LAN game (server).
Start a second cmd window, type "netstat -a".
The new server should now be visible as one or more "LISTENING" entries.
If not, Warcraft may not be working properly.

You may also have to create you game in a different way from when you create a game for the internet.

I have WARCRAFT 3 the frozen throne in my pc!but i cant play with it bec.of the cd key........please tell me the cd key?


The CD key will be located on the packaging of the game. If you look at the CD sleeves, it will sometimes be on a label on the back of the CD sleeve. It's a serial number that looks like this:

XXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXX

good luck.

Installing warcraft 1.24d without install path


Hello Sir,

I assume you were asking how to install game without patch.
Game installed from PC will have the version depending on when CD was burned.

However using patches doesn't do anything bad so it's strongly recommended to always have the lastest patch. Download you will find here: http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?locale=en_US&articleId=21220&parentCategoryId&pageNumber=1&categoryId=2542
