The CarboniteReadMe.txt file that is in the zip file you download contains installation instructions and a User Guide.
Or use the instructions below.
Click on "Downloads" in the website navigation bar. Click on a file link to start the zip file download. You would "open" the downloaded file or you can double click zip files to open them on Windows.
You unzip the downloaded zip file to the Game's Interface\Addons folder and you are done.
Look at the shortcut (right click the Warcraft icon and select properties) you use to start Warcraft to get the path to where the game is installed.
Typical locations for the AddOns folder:
Windows XP: "C:\Program
Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns"
Warcraft only finds addons when it starts. Close Warcraft before you install an addon.
Vista or Windows 7 installation:
When you click a file link a dialog box should ask to "Open" or "Save". If you click "Open", then it will download the file and then show the contents. Near the top of the window that shows the file contents is a "Extract all files" button. Left click that and then click "Browse..." in the new window that opens. If you don't know the addon folder location, then look at the shortcut (right click and select properties) you use to launch Warcraft to get the path to where it is installed. Use the "Select a destination" window that opened to left click on "Computer" then (C:) or whatever drive it is installed on. Continue to click until you are at the game's "Interface\AddOns" folder.
The Vista default path
Now left click "OK" at the bottom of the window and you should see "(the game path)\Interface\AddOns" in the "Files will be extracted to this folder:" line. Now click the "Extract" button at the bottom of the window. If it asks to overwrite files, which it will the next time you install another version of Carbonite and you did not delete the existing folder, then click "Yes".
You would then have 3 folders:
World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Carbonite
1 Go to the Carbonite
If It does not work:
If Carbonite is not loading
when you login with a character.
Check the "World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons" folder for these folders and files:
Carbonite (a folder)
Look in the Carbonite
folder. You should see:
If you don't see these files, then try the steps again, since you probably unzipped it to a different location and the game will not be able to load the files.
Still have old version:
Check the version number in the Addons list or the Carbonite minimap button tooltip. If it shows a lower number that what you just downloaded, then you unzipped it to the wrong folder.
If you have Vista, then
the 3.0.2 patch probably moved your AddOns folder and you may be unzipping
to the old location.
General Debugging Steps:
Reboot the computer.
Settings Won't Save:
If the game settings
won't save, you will see the license agreement every time you log
