This application has encountered a critical error:

 

FATAL ERROR!

 

Program: c:\program files(x86)\warcraft iii\war3.exe

Exception: 0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 0023:6F042860

 

The instruction at '0x6F043860' referenced at '0x00000024'.

Is your Warcraft 3 up-to-date? If not, patch it.

Could you try running Warcraft 3 with your integrated graphics card?

Why is Warcraft 3 in your c:\program files(x86) folder? It should of been installed in c:\Games for Windows Vista, 7, and 8 users.

Cause that's the correct and standard installation folder for Warcraft 3.

I don't think so. What should be the reason for that? I have never seen an "official" C:\Games, where did you get this information?

When I was installing warcraft 3 on my PC(windows 7), I selected it to be installed c:\program files(x86) instead of C:\Games which was suggested, Game wasn't working. So I looked up a similar problem and found that it should be installed to c:\Games. Game worked fine for me after reinstalling the game to that folder afterwards.

 

I unfortunately don't have the link of where I found this. I will try to find it for you.

Interesting. Never heard of such a problem and its solution.

But reinstalling the game could solve the problem.
