X64 Problem!

Postby BreeOge » Sun Nov 09, 2008 3:50 am

Ok. I did do a search and never found anything on this.. When I go to Upload manualy it says "Please click Browse to select the SV file. the SV file is usually in DRIVE:\PROGRAM FILES\WORLD OF WARCRAFT\WTF\
ACCOUNT\ACCOUNTNAME\" The problem is mine is in Program Files (x86) and no browse button anywhere in sight!

Thanks for any help on this.

Dont have a pic of it.. However I am reloading wow into the x64 bit Program Folder since it just says Program Files instead of Program Files (x32). I am hoping that this fixes my problem and I have no problems with WoW being ran in the 64 bit program!

I don't get it.

What do you mean by 'X64' and 'X32' ?
Can you give details your OS please ?

Anyway, any consumer OS is able to browse the net, and do things like 'loading files' and 'sending files'. If not, just stay away from it, live is already to difficult ;-)

Any, to assure you, a 64 bit Linux version on a 'real' 64 bit processor just works. I'm using it to post this message.

I have windows Vista X64 With the UAC turned the heck off! On windows Vista X64 it makes two program files directories. One that is the normal Program Files and another that says Program Files (x32). All programs you install that are 32 bit move to this folder. All programs that are 64 bit move to the normal Program Files directory, and well WoW is a 32 bit program.

Uniuploder looks for the SV files in the Program Files directory, not under the Program Files (x32) directory. When you get the error even though it says brows no browse button was there to click to browse to the files. I know Uniuploder has the option to check for the SV's in other directories if the UAC is turned on. However this is a 64 problem all together, nothing to do with the UAC.

Sounds like UU needs to

1. Check OS ver, IF x64 THEN
2. Use ProgramFiles(x86) variable instead of ProgramFiles to find the correct path for a 32-bit app.

WoW installs a registry entry saying where it was installed. Use that first. Only if not found should you fall back to hard-coded paths. Even then, use the KNOWNFOLDERID API:

I believe I have a similar issue with Windows XP Pro x64. UU asks on startup where WoW.exe is, and will not allow me to check the "auto-detect WoW" box.
Once it finds WoW, it's fine. SVs and Addons install properly, but a bit of x64 love would be very, very nice.

Yes, I'm a gravedigger.

The problem has nothing to do with whether it's in Program Files or Program Files (x86). It has to do with the registry entry written by the Blizzard installation program. Look in your registry here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertainment\World of Warcraft

There should be a string value named InstallPath and its value should be the full path to wow.exe (ie. the directory it's in).

If you copied WoW from another machine, this registery entry won't be set up, so you'll have to tell UniUploader where you installed WoW, using the "Find WoW.exe" button.

That did fix it. I copied WoW from my previous machine, so the installation reg entries were non-existent. But I figure now, sharing the proper x64 entry with the rest of the world would be helpful:
Code: Select all
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertainment\World of Warcraft]
"InstallPath"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\World of Warcraft"
"GamePath"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\World of Warcraft\\Launcher.exe"
"UninstallPath"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Common Files\\Blizzard Entertainment\\World of Warcraft\\Uninstall.exe"


C&P into Notepad, save as .reg, Unicode, and import into the Registry. Should solve the "Find WoW.exe" issue.
