Whenever I click “Play” on Battle.net it appears like the game is launching, then stops and returns to the normal play button. Upon looking into task manager on the details tab, “Warcraft III.exe” opens, then “WerFault.exe” appears for a split second before both immediately closing. I’ve scoured through many posts that have this same problem and have tried many solutions, but to no avail.
Deleting both game files and Battle.net files
Reinstalling the game
Logging in and out of Battle.net
Allowing Warcraft III through firewall
Temporarily turning off firewall before launching
Closing Windows Defender
Closing/Removing all startup programs
Closing additional programs
I have noticed certain posts talking about a Warcraft III folder in Documents, this folder does not exist in my Documents folder. I would imagine that this folder only exists upon the first successful launch of the game. To my knowledge, this is the only Battle.net game that acts this way. I have just installed the game on a laptop, and it opens & works fine. This is getting to the point where I’m afraid I will have to reinstall Windows or something like that, and I don’t think I’m ready for that type of head pain on top of all this. If there’s anything that I have not tried yet, I will be happy to try. I will also provide any additional information necessary.
