    Different Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne Problem in Windows 7

    Okay, the problem is, after installing my Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne on my 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 it again, it maximizes for around 1 second then minimizes again. I know its running fine because I can hear the sounds of the program and I can see the menu for 1 second.

    I'm wondering if this is fixable. I search the internet for similar 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.


    Here is my Computer specification.

    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.

    Good find, did you send feedback to Microsoft?

    No. And I think, Microsoft intentionally added that option because, it can't be fixed on their side. So, I think, it's up to the game producer to add some compatibility in their program.

    It's just a thought anyway.

    Vista has the same "feature", Desktop Composition, but WC3:FT works just
    fine on Vista, so this is probably a bug introduced in Windows 7, could be
    based on your hardware or something else, but either way when you observe
    something click the send feedback link.

    Just my thought anyway.

    not necessarily. I run TFT in Vista and i have the same problem. The
    solutuion is the same turn off desktop composition.
