Installing hearthstone Access

There are two ways to install: automated and manual. Updating Hearthstone Access is also done using these same methods. Notably, Hearthstone Access has to be installed again every time Hearthstone itself is updated. With minor Hearthstone updates, the same version of Hearthstone Access usually works. But with more major updates changes are required to Hearthstone Access itself before it works with the new version of the game. Depending on the size of these changes and the availability of the community developers, the update to Hearthstone access may take a varying amount of time from just a couple of hours to a couple of days or even much longer in rare cases.

Automated installation

Community member leibylucw has developed a simple installation tool downloadable via this link:

After downloading the program, execute it by pressing enter on it. A text console window opens and you will see the following lines appearing one after one after some delay:

    Downloading patch, please wait...
    Patching Hearthstone, please wait...
    Successfully patched!
    Press enter to exit the patcher.

After the final line appears you can press enter to quit the program. In the future when ever you want to update or reinstall Hearthstone Access just run the program again.

Note: when running the program for the first time you might encounter the following error:

Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

If that happens select the More info link and then press the run anyway button.

Manual installation

Download the patch from the link on this page. In case you are already familiar with installing Hearthstone Access manually, the process is the same. Below are more detailed instructions:

  1. Navigate to the downloaded and press enter on it.
  2. You should now be inside the zip file. There is a patch folder. Press enter on it.
  3. You should now see three folders inside the patch folder: accessibility, hearthstone_data and strings. Press ctrl +a to select all of them and ctr +c to copy them to your clipboard.
  4. Navigate to the Hearthstone installation folder which by default is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Hearthstone
  5. Press ctrl +v to copy the files to the folder.
  6. You will get a prompt informing you that the folder already contains some files with the same names and asking what do you want to do. Select the option Replace the files in the destination.
  7. After the files have been copied, Hearthstone Access has been installed successfully.

Other Downloads

Note: these downloads have been created by the community and may or may not work with the latest version of the game to varying degrees. The Discord server is the best place to discuss and get help with them.

Golden Cursor Positions File and Mercenaries scripts

For users of the NVDA screen reader, an addon called Golden Cursor allows the user to save positions on screen and then quickly point their mouse pointer at them, ready to click. This is a file of screen coordinates for Hearthstone that allows access to a number of screens that have not been coded into Hearthstone Access, such as the Battlegrounds Rewards Track, Tavern brawls, and some Solo Adventures. Also included is an Autohotkey file that allows one to play Mercenaries, in tandem with Golden Cursor. You can find Autohotkey here.
