    Lightbulb Another solution for "Couldn't open Game.dll"

    Hi everyone,

    As I've struggled for a while with WC3 giving me the "Couldn't open Game.dll" error and none of the suggestions mentioned here didn't seem to work. I was eventually able to fix it and here is the process I followed:

    1. Download and extract this program called "Dependencies" (it is a modern version of "Dependency Walker") -

    2. Open DependenciesGui.exe (it might require permission to run as it's not digitally signed)

    3. Go to File -> Open, then browse to the Warcraft 3 folder and open w3lh.dll

    4. In case of missing DLL dependency there will be entries marked in red (in my case the installer didn't install zlib1.dll for some reason but it installed it's debug counterpart - zlibd1.dll)

    5. I've downloaded a copy of zlib1.dll from the Internet and placed it inside the WC3 folder

    6. That's all
