How to fix your League of Legends Registry Paths (OP.GG fix)

The issue

If you play League of Legends and use any third party tools (to record replays, enhance gameplay, among other things :p) then you have probably run into programs that ask for the path of your League of Legends directory. Fortunately, some programs can auto detect this using the Windows registry. However, if you have moved your League of Legends folder to another folder, reinstalled/upgraded Windows or used a registry cleaner in the past then its possible that your registry entries are corrupt. This means they either don’t exist or don’t point to the correct path.

This is a common issue for most people who cannot watch OP.GG replays as the OP.GG replay batch files rely on the RADs path to function correctly. You might have run into this error:

KR: LOL 경로를 자동으로 찾을 수 없습니다. 도움말에서 관전하기 문제 해결을 보시면 100% 해결 될 수 있습니다. 100% 해결 될 수 있으니, 채팅방에서 괜히 사서 고생해서 물어보지마세요!!!!!!!
EN: Cannot found LOL directory path for automatic. Please see our spectate help page: http://oce.op.gg/help/observer

 

OP.GG has a section on their website that can allow you to set the path manually (which will be reflected in downloaded batch files) but this must be done for each region and every now and again which is not ideal. For the OCE server, the instructions are under the League of legend.exe file can not be found header at http://oce.op.gg/help/observer/

 

A permanent solution

I decided to write a script that can fix this issue for third party applications and web apps.
Simply copy and paste the following code into a text file (.txt) using a text editor of your choice (ie notepad).
Then save the file with a .bat extension (call it anything you like such as fix.bat).
Now simply right click the file and Run as Administrator .

Finally, follow the on screen instructions and choose your system architecture (32 bit/64 bit) and enter the path to your LoL folder. If you do not know your system architecture then run the program twice and use both options.

        The instructions are pretty easy to follow. Try searching the web about how to run batch files, it should make things more clear.

    Hey man, thx but when I download your file it doesn’t work the size is 0 byte… “uknown size” more precisely with IDM. I tried also with browsers, nothing works. It was for the logitech issue but I can’t find LoL when scanning automatically.

    I ran it as administrator still i get the error : “Path points to folder that does not exist.”. I tried shortening the path like ;C:\!OYUNLAR\Riot Games\League of Legends to C:\!OYUNLAR\Riot Games then C:\!OYUNLAR and when i finally tried choosing the path as just C:\ it started doing its thing. However i suspect it has done nothing except f.cking up registry, what do you think?

      also if i try to bypass the validation check manuelly by defining lolpath at line 36 ; set lolpath=%lolpath%\RADS as
      set lolpath=C:\!OYUNLAR\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS and copying this line with the rest (line36 and after) to a bat file and runnig it ?

        August 28, 2017 at 6:22 AM

        ok after taking another look at the codes, i removed lines between 19-35 and at line 36 wrote :
        set lolpath=C:\!OYUNLAR\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS.
        And kept rest of the code intact and ran it. Now i will try your logitech gaming software solution and will report the results.

          well, it doesnt accept the”!” in the path name. It goes on saying
          Key values will be set to the following RADS path: C:\OYUNLAR\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS.

          I tried saving in ansi, unicode and UTF-8, except cmd not really staying open in unicode it didn’t help.

            after searching the web i found out that in the original code changing every
            %lolpath% to !lolpath!
            works.
