1 WC3Banlist Windows Vista Installation on Sun Jan 25, 2009 1:37 am

Intro:


Well after having Windows Vista RTM (Build 6000) and refusing to be back on the evil Windows XP. I wanted to play Wc3 and use WC3Banlist with it as I play DOTA games. In the process of installing WC3Banlist, I had hopes that it would be easy and simple; I was wrong. There were all kinds of issues, and thats what I want to cover here. In this tutorial, you will learn how to install and use WC3Banlist with no issues at all. Also I would like to thank whomever sticked this thread.*I assume it was you Knarf, so thank you*

EVERYONE PLEASE READ: Do not try and help me here on this thread when the person needing help has Vista, the #1 problem people have with vista is the Administrator rights that block the programs from getting the rights it needs to run things in the background. Example: NPF cannot be started by Banlist without administrator privileges and therefor stopping Banlist from being able to use WinPCap to get the NIC info and send shit out.. TBH I cannot give the exact reason but thats the idea) Another example of administrator rights needing to be given to Banlist is the DirectX-API hook, without the administrator rights being given to WC3Banlist it cannot send the info or get the info it wants (I can be wrong ask Knarf the genius) and therefore cannot hook to wc3.

Table of Contents:

Part 1.) Installation of WinPCap 4.0 (You have to install this before WC3Banlist)
Part 2.) Installation of WC3Banlist 3.0 (DO NOT MISS A STEP!!!)
Part 3.) Installation of WC3Banlist Beta (REQUIRED TO MAKE HOTKEYS WORK WITH UAC ON + IE TO NOT CRASH!!)
Part 4.) F.A.Qs (Still under construction)

Part 1.) Installation of WinPCap 4.0First we need to install WinPCap 4.0 because in Vista things has changed so WinPCap 3.0 that comes with WC3Banlist will not work. So to prevent that issue we need to follow the steps below.
1.) Download WinPCap 4.0 here -> http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.html 2.) Install WinPCap 4.0 with default settings.

Part 2.) Installation of WC3Banlist:


Now we need to install WC3Banlist and make sure we do not let it install the WinPCap that it comes with. To do that follow the steps below.

1.) Download WC3Banlist 3.0 here -> http://www.wc3banlist.de/downloads.php
2.) Install WinPCap 4.0 with default settings.

Part 2.) Installation of WC3Banlist:

Now we need to install WC3Banlist and make sure we do not let it install the WinPCap that it comes with. To do that follow the steps below.

1.) Download WC3Banlist 3.0 here -> http://www.wc3banlist.de/downloads.php
2.) Install WC3Banlist 3.0 (When you get to "Select Additional Tasks" make sure you have WinPcap 3.1 unchecked.)

3.) (Do this or don't post!!)
Right click your shortcut on your Desktop and choose Properties. Then click the Compatibility tab and under Privilege Level, check Run this program as an administrator. Then click Ok. (If you do not do this you will not be able to detect your network card during the wizard.)
4.) Run WC3Banlist for the first time and go through the wizard.

Part 3.) Installation of WC3Banlist Beta (Build 182 and above):
(REQUIRED TO MAKE HOTKEYS WORK WITH UAC ON + IE TO NOT CRASH!!)

You have to download the latest beta after downloading and installing WC3Banlist 3.0 unless you do not want your hotkeys working when you have UAC (User Account Control) on. Also if you want to use IE7 and WC3Banlist at the same time without IE7 crashing fast.

1.) Download the beta here -> http://www.wc3banlist.de/downloads.php
2.) Extract the contents of the zip to your WC3Banlist folder. (Hint in :/Program Files/WC3Banlist)
Part 4.) Facts and Questions:
Q: Does it work on x64 Bit Vista?
A: Hell yes! So long as you have latest WinPCap Installed which came out Jan 5 2007.

Q: What if I already have WC3Banlist installed?
A: All you have to do is make sure you have the latest WinPCap (Currently 4.1 beta4)and then just follow step three of part two.


Q: I followed your steps and I still cannot get DirectX-API to hook.
A: Remember to follow Part 2, Step 3 VERY carefully. Without administrator rights being given to WC3Banlist, you wont be able to get DirectX-API hooked OR the NIC card to work at all.

Q: IE7 Crashes when WC3Banlist is ON!
A: Follow Step 4 carefully
