How to fix the Warcraft 3 registry error?

It says there is a registry error loading the key.
This can happen if something got wrong during the main installation or because you do not have a legal/original copy of Warcraft 3.

Making a registry entry in the Windows Registry Editor can solve the problem!

Follow the steps and patch again afterwards!
