    Wc3 wont open, no error message

    After installing Warcraft 3 and the expansion when I tried to open the program I got an error message saying that the program had encountered a problem and needed to close.

    I played around with all the settings, especially putting Warcraft 3 and war3 in compatibility mode for XP sp2 and running as administrator. I had the same issues. I then reinstalled and used a different installer hoping that would help.



    Now I have the exact same problem, but no error message.

    And just to be clear, when I open the game (by using either the Warcraft 3 application or the Frozen Throne application) I see the window with the games logo that comes up before the game opens, the screen turns black, and then just returns to windows.

    Thanks in advance. Good looking community you have here.

    have you tried patching it to the latest version?
    what OS are you using?

    either reinstall the game, or give us the crash log in .txt, which is found in the error folder inside your wc3 one

    try changing the driver letter...install it in d or f or something else, rather than c

    it says that game.dll is the cause...your copy of w3 must be corrupted.

    dl a fresh image from a torrent and see if you encounter the same problems.

    Thanks for all your help.

    I have tried both a disk image and an installer with the same results. Like I said earlier, I have already reinstalled (i've actually done it three times, twice with a disk image, and once with an installer). I'll try installing it to a different letter.

    W3ARG: What effect will the key have?

    I have tried both manually running as admin and not. No difference.

    Marik: I don't have another drive to install to.

    what size is your game.dll...after the latest patching it should be '12,140,544 bytes"

    right click your game.dll, go to properties, and make sure 'read-only' isn't checked. If it is, uncheck it

    Also try this tool Warcraft 3 InstallPath Generator
