World of Warcraft Clients

Each installed World of Warcraft client is listed here and is able to be supported by WowUp.

WowUp currently supports the follow clients.

  • Retail
  • Retail PTR
  • Wrath of the Lich King
  • Wrath of the Lich King PTR

This button will run the automatic scanning process for installed World of Warcraft clients. This may be useful if you've installed a client while WowUp was running.

Add New

In the event that WowUp was unable to automatically find your WoW client, you can use this button to select the game executable yourself.

Editing An Installation

Upon hitting the Edit button you will be able to set the default channel you want your addons to install with. You can also set whether you want all addons you install to be marked as auto update.

You now also have the option of moving your clients up and down in the list via the up/down arrow at the bottom. This will also change their order in the client selector drop down menu.


You can no longer edit the path of a client, if you need to change it simply remove it here and add a new one with the path you need.
