Windows 7: Warcraft 3 crashing on launch windows 7

Warcraft 3 crashing on launch windows 7

Just to note i have already tried blizzard support and they have failed to find a solution so here goes nothing. I click the launch icon for warcraft 3 frozen throne the launch icon with arthas appears the screen goes black then it crashes.

Program: c:\program files (x86)\warcraft iii\war3.exe
Exception: 0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 0023:6F0CDB75

The instruction at '0x6F0CDB75' referenced memory at '0x00000000'.
The memory could not be 'read'.

the last error report i could find in the error logs. I have tried the -opengl and such. compatibility mode as well as updating drivers. ROC and TFT will not launch they both crash the exact same way launcher appears screen goes black program crashes no sound, no changes at all as far as i can tell

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I suggest you do a memory test on your RAM, sounds like a faulty stick or two to me, you can download this here: MemTest86 - Download now! and go to the free version, here's some info to set up a bootable usb or cd: PassMark MemTest86 - Memory Diagnostic Tool - Technical Information

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

+1 on what Mr. Needs said.

On this could be as easy and simple as not having the requirements to play the game, corrupt video and audio drivers, bad installation of the game... without knowing your System Specs (under user CP), it will be very difficult to pin point the issue and you will receive a lot of speculation.
