I tried playing Warcraft 3 yesterday and I got this error message:
"Unable to initialize DirectX. Please ensure that you have installed DirectX 8.1 or higher and that your display drivers are up to date..."


System info:
AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
Windows 7 64bit

Radeon Software Crimson 17.4.4

LG TV, VGA, 1920x1080
Motherboard: P8Z77-V

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz


I've tried entering "-opengl" in the properties, uninstalling and wiping all Warcraft 3 files off of my computer then reinstalling, fiddling with the registry, installing older drivers, installing an older version of DirectX, and at least 5 other things, but nothing changes it.

Nothing I can find online gives me a solution to this problem, so I figured I'd try asking here.


Here's an imagine of the error here.
