Talk to Blizzard about it. Phone their customer service line, and tell them that you've lost your key. For $10 they will send you a new one.

if he didn't format yet then the key is still in the registry. all he has to do is fond the right registry key.

anyone know where this is?

EDIT: i've been meaning to install WC3 again. i'll install it and see if i can find the key in the registry. if i can i'll post where to look :)

I don't think it's warez. He was going to use the program for a legitimate purpose: To find his lost CD Key.

But if push comes to shove, and you can't find where it's stored, $10 to Blizzard might not be a bad idea.

If it's not in the registry (could be encoded) then it has to be in a file somewhere, most likely in the Warcraft 3 directory, but I've seen other games put them in C:\ etc...

Could start opening config files & looking around (Quake 3 had it's key in the configs)
