    Default warcraft III won't work (HINT: latest patch removes all cd-checks)

    Hey i sort of got the same problem too, it says


    "Please verify that your frozen throne disc is in your CD-Rom drive, then click on 'retry'

    its for warcraft it all completely works but when i click "Play Warcraft" it gives me that message and im still wondering how to fix it, any help would be great.

    Just update to the latest version of Warcraft III. The CD check was removed in the last patch.

    I downloaded Dameon tools today(version 4.3 - it's the latest right?), and I still get the same problem.

    I'm trying to run reign of chaos but it still says that the disc is not there.

    There we go. Thanks for the help Jito. I beat the first mission of prologue.

    Another problem. I shut down my comp after playing for a bit.

    When I turned it on again, the Daemon tools icon at the bottom right disappeared, and without that, I don't know how to get Warcraft 3 working.

    start->programs->daemon tools (might also be daemon tools pro etc.. depending on what version you have), it should launch daemon.exe anyway...

    Or "Start -> Programs -> Daemon Tools -> Daemon Tools Agent" - depending on the version you just might want to start the agent (tray-icon and so on...).

    Since the last patch removed the need to have the disc in the drive (virtual or otherwise), DTools does not need to be running to play WC3 (same with Diablo 2 for that matter).

    It shouldn't but it won't let me play without the "disk" for some reason. The icon reappeared on my task bar the next day somehow. I know why it disappeared in the first place.
