    Mod Trouble

    Well recently I downloaded WoW onto this computer. Usually when I upload mods I go into Program Files-->World of Warcraft--> Interface--> Addons and just extract into that folder. The problem is when I go to program files World of Warcraft isn't there. Any suggestions on installing mods another way?

    Sounds like Vista :> Check:

    C:\Users\Public\Games\

    WoW will try to install into this folder by default on Vista.

    That's not what I meant ;-) He is searching for the WoW folder itself, that's why I mentioned that on Vista when you install WoW, the installer will automatically try to install into C:\Users\Public\Games unless you change that path (Reason: The UAC won't make any trouble when something is installed into the public folder)

    What you were referring to is the AddOns folder, I guess? On Vista it is possible that it will not be inside the WoW folder but it's not the rule. I'm running Vista too and it's in my WoW folder as well but for some people this is different.
