I reinstalled the whole warcraft copy from my CD, and patched it twice after I posted this thread.
Strangely this time, if I use my previous saved patches, and patch it step by step .....121b->122a,the error message showed again. But the second time I download a new 1.22 Full Patch from http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?articleId=21220, and it magiclly works!
I suppose my previous saved step by step patches has been too old, and the new 1.22 Full Patch has somehow improved. I don't know, but It seems that the problem has been solved...
I am running windows 7 build 7100. I downloaded and installed the game from the website. Patched it to the newest patch. When I click on WC3 the launching wc3 window pops up and it stops responding. Any ideas?

I got exact the same issue, if there are any solution at this then I would be happy to get told one, its kinda troubling since I miss playing the game after many weeks.
