2 WoW Clients, How to?

Hey! I've recently downloaded WoW, again, from their website (I have an account for retail.) The problem with this is that my sisters also play Retail, as do I. BUT I also want to play a 3.1.3 Private Server and I need help getting two separate clients.

Someone told me to copy my existing WoW Folder, and rename it (To not get them confused.) delete the Patch.dpt folder, repair WoW (which sends me back to 3.0.1) and then just patch up to 3.1.3 on that folder.

The problem that occurs, when I try to download the patch it says 'The Blizzard Updater will not run this patch, 3.0.2, because you already have 3.3.2 installed.'

3.3.2 may not be the actual patch number, but I mean I have the latest version installed on one folder, therefore it will not let me patch up my second one.

Any help, or a brand new tut. on getting 2 clients?

You must install each patch in the order.

You can patch up to patch 3.1.3 andthen rename wow folder.
After that copy it and name the one you want to be 3.3 the normal wow name.

After start patcher and let it run to full patch.


Down patch:
Goto data folder(Copy wow folder to a new folder first, and then do this is the wow with real wow folder name), find patch.mpq - Remove it. Run the repair.exe and click on repair / check all files.
Then it should goto patch 3.0.1 and then patch up to 3.1.3
