    So i upgraded to Windows 7 today and i was look to play some dota. Got the game all installed and stuff, and noticed that would not work. If i downloaded as a .zip file and extracted into the Maps/Download section, i got 6,112 kb, which i dont think is the true file size. If i dont download as zip i get the map as a 1kb executable presumably for world editor.

    Anyone know how to work this with Windows 7?

    Huh... wtf? I've always downloaded as zip then extracted (I'm on 7 as well), and 6MB does look like a real mapsize. It isn't capped at 4MB anymore since 1.24 iirc.

    My 6.66b map size is 6.610 kb so it seems that your map looks real.

    Thanks a ton, the problem was i was trying to host straight out of the gate with LC without getting the newest version of BNET so there was still a cap size on maps. thanks again!
