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:


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


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.
