Original from playdota forum,
The most common problems of all is “Missing install path” problem. This problem is (99%) caused because game wasn’t Installed, because it was only copied from another computer. The game is missing registry entries, thus, patch can’t update. Example of “Missing path error”
First you need to download War3 Registry fix program. Click to Download. Unpack it, and just double click it. You should get this screen. Now click the Fix Reign of Chaos.
Find your Warcraft 3 folder. Its ussually at C:\Program Files\Warcraft III. At my example, its at C:\Warcraft III. When you find it, mark it untill that + becomes -. Now at that bar above, path should be correct, but program generates DIABLO2 folder. DELETE IT! That Diablo folder is program mistake. Delete it with Backspace or Delete button untill its gone like this:
Click the OK button and then click Yes like this:
Now, go to first page of program again and do everything again for Frozen Throne!
When you finaly finished this fixing, go to Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne game. Just enter it, it doesn’t matter what patch you have. When you enter the game, just Quit the game. You need this part to check if you did everything correct. Do this part no matter what!
If everything worked well, now you can upgrade to 1.25b without any errors! Use latest map from www.getdota.com for testing.
