Setup for World of Warcraft

Please follow these instructions on setting up Realm Bot to work with world of warcraft.  There are several steps you must perform, however once you complete them, things will run smoothly.

Make sure to read the Troubleshooting & Tips page, it will help you get things going right after setup.

STEP ONE Download the BOT

  VERSION 3.30 Download     realmbot/
Read about 3.30 in the forums.  Several improvements have been made to make it easier to setup and use.


STEP TWO Ensure you have the .NET 1.1 SP 1 Framework installed on your computer.  This is easy to find out if you have it.  Simply try to run the bot.  If it gives you an error about missing .DLL files, then you need to go to  and select custom, and under 'optional updates' you should see the .NET Framework.  Once you install the .NET framework, you will need to reboot your system, go back to microsoft updates, and install the service pack for .NET.

Q:  Why must I install the .NET framework?

A:  I was too busy to program an installer with the application.  Installers are nice little "wraps" that you use to 'install' a program.  This is just a stand-alone EXE.  I am so busy with other things, and since it works just fine with the .NET framework, I am releasing the program without an installer.   The .NET framework is a nice package anyway, and XP Pro machines usually have this pre-installed, so it is great to have it regardless.


Now that you have the .NET framework, and can run the program, you need to authenticate.  You will only need to do this once.  If you get an error message about "data access components" then go to this link and install MDAC 2.8.   Enter your restrictedrealm account credentials and you will enter the main program area.  If you can't authenticate, make sure your firewall allows the program access to the internet.  You can disable your firewall just for a few seconds in order to clear the program (last resort).  If all fails, please let me know on the forums. 

Once you are 'in' the program, now its time to pause.  We have some other things to do first.


Configure WoW to run in windowed mode.  Edit the World of Warcraft shortcut on your desktop.  RIGHT-CLICK-->PROPERTIES.

add -windowed after the end like this

"C:\mygames\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe" -windowed


STEP FIVE - make sure your attack is set for the '1' key.
