When that message comes up and you enter the task manager (ctrl+alt+del), make sure to check the Processes tab for the game executable. Find the game file (war3.exe), right click on it, and click end process.

Yep, did that the game is definately not running, all thats running is the Blizzard Updater. Any idea when the patch will be available for download from the blizzard site?

I got the same problem as Spiffyclip. After downloading the patch war3 won't patch it, i tried to manually start BNupade and it didn't work either. Then i downloaded the 122a-123a patch.exe from blizzards ftp server and started it with the same results. BNUpdate starts (at least the task manager says so) but nothing happens after several seconds the BNUpade entry disappears from the task manager.
I have the same problem, and I've tried applying manually downloaded patch, as well as reinstalling and patching after. None of that worked.
Interestingly enough, I tried patching to 1.21b after trying to patch to the newest, and it didn't work either. Nor did 1.21a, but every patch before that worked. However, they've [1.21a -> 1.22] worked in the past (but I've since reinstalled XP Pro). I also tried installing some of the possibly missing dependancies -- such as Visual C++, which was missing the last time. It didn't help either.
My conclusion is that either this is the same problem as before (as in the last patch), but I merely didn't remember to go through all the steps to fix it, or that there's something else wrong with the updater.
I managed to solve my problem by patching my WC3 running on computer running Linux using Wine and copying all the needed DLLs, executables and MPQs. This means that if there's a missing dependancy, Wine has it (probably).
bnupdate.log has the following content:
Blizzard BNUpdate v2.63 compiled on Apr 10 2003
Log created at 2:03 pm on 03/20/2009
ERROR: unknown command on line 3 of file patch.cmd in archive D:\games\war3\War3Patches_TFT_123a_enUS.exe,Patch_War3x.mpq
RESULT: Patch failed
Earlier it also had something about worldedit.exe, but unfortunately I don't have that log anymore. I didn't have the version of worldedit.exe, like some others reported, so that wasn't the problem.
