    I have a problem opening Warcraft III


      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
      8 GB RAM


      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.
