Hey so I installed 2x version of wc3, both from:

https://eurobattle.net/downloads/home

1.28.5 works just fine, I can log in through Gproxy, but when I try and start the Dota version on 1.26 the game is asking for a version 8.1 version of DirectX OR higher while I have 11....

Do I need to download wc3 1.26 from somewhere else to resolve this issue or is the problem coming from my side?

Also I do have to mention, the forum needs a search bar....

I located a few cases regarding this issue: http://prntscr.com/saefj8
Adapter was at 0....  changed it to 1 on from another request ... changed it back to zero and nothing happened

Later on I saw this post https://dota.eurobattle.net/la/forum/index.php/topic,187784.0.html

But now I get this error: Warcraft3 was unable to initialize OpenGL. Please ensure you have OpenGl installed.... Where the fuck do I get the correct link for this download now....

Also tried with this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=93&v=ZYWp2IAebCg&feature=emb_title

The first method doesn't work, the second method requires me to download .NET Framework 3.5

Which while installing causes an installation error: 0x800F0906

All I see are problems on the horizon.... Will I ever get this to work?

I will check it out [install Teamviewer] when i get home later.
It is probably some minor fuckup since your .28 is working.

Also , discord is somewhat better for real-time assistance, there is an invite link in my signature.

Dont get frustrated, it is most likely a minor thing.

There are 3 known solutions to this problem: https://wiki.eurobattle.net/index.php?title=Missing_DirectX_8.1_or_newer_in_Warcraft_III_1.26

Looks like you tried 2 of them already and it didnt work for some reason.

Try this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34429

Update your GPU drivers.

Try the adapter value change together with opengl switch (try running with opengl with value 0 and then with 1). Looks like the game detects no video drivers for some reason.

If .net fails to install on your pc that is getting even weirder.. googling for .net framework 0x800F0906 does return official troubleshooting from microsoft.
