Mine is still working fine... Try installing it agin in a sperate
WINEPREFIX (prefix all wine / winecfg / regedit / winetricks command
with "WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-warcraft" or something similar...)

1. Install Warcraft
2. Install Frozen Throne (if applicable)
3. Install patch 1.22_a_ (IIRC The "a" variant removes the dependency
on VCRUN2005)
4. Delete / rename Movies folder
5. Edit registry (see below for file from appdb) (Manual editing is
probably easier...)
5. Try running the game
6. If it STILL complains about Visual C++ runtime, try installing
vcrun2005sp1 with winetricks.

I have no DLL overrides and only Warcraft installed in that
WINEPREFIX. It does not look if vcrun2005 is installed.

Make sure about your display drivers... (Anyone with an easy,
cross-distro way of checking Intel driver versions?) (I'm running
2.5.0 of xf86-video-intel according to portage, but it used to work on
all >2.1 that I had installed....)


----------- Registry file ----------------------

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\Warcraft III]
"Gfx OpenGL"=dword:00000001
