Different Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne Problem in Windows 7

Posted: 02-14-2009, 07:17 AM

Okay, the problem is, after installing my Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne on m
Windows 7 beta, 7000build. I can run War3.exe after the installation
When I restarted my computer, the problem starts here

Every time I open my War3, It minimizes on my task bar. When I click i
again, it maximizes for around 1 second then minimizes again. I know it
running fine because I can hear the sounds of the program and I can se
the menu for 1 second.

I'm wondering if this is fixable. I search the internet for simila
problem but it looks like I'm the only one having this kind of problem.

I tried Updating my Video Card driver, I think I have the latest.

Thanks in advance whoever can fix this problem

Tried system restore, no result.

Reinstalling my War3, it works. But, whenever I restart my computer
the problem appear again. I need to shutdown my computer

Done. I fixed it.

The problem is, with the windows 7 desktop Composition

Here's the solution.

Go to the warcraft installation folder
Select War3.exe then, right click it, properties

Compatibility -> check -disable desktop composition.

And no more, minimizing problem
