I've looked all over the forums and found poeple with the same problems...HonMod keeps showing me the message "Could not detect Heroes of Newerth Version. Version checks have been disabled." My path is correct ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Heroes of Newerth") and my .Net Frame is up to date. What is the problem?
I recently added a troubleshooting section to the mod manager post; quoted here for your convenience:

This may have several causes:
You set the HoN install path wrong, and it thus couldn't find the game files. This can be solved by setting the correct path: note that you should NOT point it to the \game or the \game\mods sub-folder, but the main folder!
Examples: "C:\Program Files\Heroes Of Newerth" under Windows, "/home/<username>/HoN" under Linux and "/Applications/Heroes of Newerth.app" under Mac OS.
The HoN install path is set correctly, but the program is missing read privileges on the files. This can be solved by either running the program as admin, or turning off User Access Control (UAC) or explicitly adding read privileges for the files in the HoN installation directory.
You have HoN running, which locks access to its game files. Simply close HoN before running the mod manager.
When I run the program I get an error reading "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application.".
This error usually means you haven't got the .NET Framework 2.0 installed. You can download it here: 32-bit/64-bit.
When I try to apply mods I get error messages reading "<mod name> caused a problem: Could not find string starting with [...]".
This indicates that at least two of the mods you have got enabled are not compatible with each other. You need to figure out which ones and disable either.
For example a mod that completely revamps (= replaces) the in-game interface like "Tiny UI" won't work with mods editing aspects of the default UI like "Auto Ability Learning". These kinds of incompatibilities are not addressed by the mod manager.
