    separate WoW clients on one machine

    Hi, sorry if this is a stupid question that has been answered elswhere.

    I want to set up a private server on my own machine. I have read that this is possible, but if I modify my WoW files, I cannot safely play the retail game can I?
    so I think I need to have 2 separate WoW clients running on my machine in order to play and edit on the private server.
    I mean, I want to do model edits and stuff like that.

    EDIT:
    I just noticed it says 'no questions here'.. I totally apologise for my oversight, can I please get moved to the correct forum?

    Wrong section.
    You can't have 2 WoWs installed in one computer. I would say that if you have a retail account then you should beware of blizzard. My account got suspended for a week becous i runned my own private server.

    You could probably use VMware but I wouldn't use VMware to play on Games. You could try it, its just that sometimes the Video Card isn't good and you can't play on high graphic games. I haven't tested it on games and I'm not even sure if you can multi play video games. Just try it out.

    EDIT:

    Here's the website: VMware

    Can you play both WoW installations at the same time?

    Copy the WoW Directory to a diffrent part of your hardrive (WoW will use up about 20GB of space but meh) edit the realmlist there and you can have both running.

    Just copy your WoW folder... It is safe to run a server and to play retail at the same time oO
