"Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne" is a real-time strategy game for the PC. The game has an extensive single-player campaign and a competitive multiplayer mode if you are a player who likes to test his skills against other gamers. Starting with patch 1.24e, Blizzard, the developer of the game, eliminated the need to have the CD to boot up the game, so gamers can play the game without needing to monitor the condition of their disc. Any patch released after 1.24d will include the feature.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download a patch for "Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne" that is a later version than the 1.24d patch. Patches can be downloaded from a variety of file hosting sites or even the game's official site.

  2. 2

    Install the patch by double-clicking the downloaded file. The patch should open an installation window.

  3. 3

    Click "Next" and "Start" to begin the installation. The patch will remove the need to insert the disc to play "Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne."

  4. 4

    Click the game's "Frozen Throne.exe" file from the game's directory to start the game. The file's default file path is "C:\Program Files\Warcraft III."
