Windows 7: Warcraft 3 and Windows 7 problem

Warcraft 3 and Windows 7 problem

I went to at least another 10-20 forums and wrote about my problem AND still no help received. So I will start with my specs :
OS : Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Edition
CPU : Intel Core2Duo E6300 1.86 GHz
GPU : GB Ge-Force 8600GT 512 MB
Motherboard : ASUS P5LD2-X/1333
RAM : DDR2 Kinston 2x2 GB
If you need more info I will write it down. So my Warcraft 3 can't start and I saw that it is in the runnable games list but still can't make it to work. Tried all of the compatibility options I tried running it in -opengl I tried updating my sound card drivers,video card drivers,chipset drivers , installing DirectX9.0c and almost anything I could found but still NO GO ! If I run it with -opengl in the shortcut instead of seeing my desktop with changed resolution(800x600) I see a black screen and the war3 in the taskbar. So my problem is :
1.Start Warcraft3 TFT (1.24c-newest patch isn't from that)
2.It goes into black screen as it should to the intro
3.But instead it gives me my desktop in low resolution and a Warcraft 3 Running but not working
If I try to close the process it tells me I need to have administrative privilages and i kill the process with cmd.
I really need your help guys I want to play really bad. I have CS1.6,Cod4,cod6,dirt 2 and plenty more games that run FINE but not this one . HELP ME !

Hi and welcome

You should check event viewer. type eventvwr in search>goto windows log>application tab. Look for errors (the have red in the left column) that mention either app hang, app crash, or anything that mentions the game.

When you find them use the built in snipping tool (type snipping in search) to make a screen shot and upload it to us using the attachment icon (shaped like a paper clip) in the reply form see pics

I didn't find anything in the eventviewer that has something to do with War3 or with my video drivers.

it should be a 64bit driver problem... but sadly no idea how to fix it ... (good thing I'm still stuck to 32bit LOL)

warcraft III TFT 1.24c works fine for me...

@offtopic I'm sure you play wc3 because of dota , right XD?


my only suggestion is try to update to latest driver ver or try older driver version X_X;!

I already have the newest driver ... I can try the old driver idea but there are so many ... How can I be sure what to use ? No still doesn't start... I guess I will never play dota again... At least not until someone can figure it out or I install a different Windows 7 but i doubt it happening soon...

My suggestion is to go from dota to HON

However, I ran War3 on Win 7 64bit. But it wasn't 1.24c. hmm

But I like DotA>HON just I find it attractive and don't like HON because it's kind of dark and more complex... If someone has ideas I am here...

did you run the installer, it seems the codec or whatever it needs to play the intro video is missing.
