    What happens when you open the Warcraft 3 Model Editor?

    If it gives an error, it usually is a file-missing error. Just google the file and how to download it, and then the error will be fixed. With that fix, Warcraft 3 Model Editor should work just fine.

    You might also want to try running it in compatiblity mode. If it is interacting with your boot drive (usually C) then you might also need to give it administrator permision so it can access the files.

    It says d3dx9_35.dll is missing so can't open. To fix that problem, reinstall that program.

    It can not find the Direct3D 9 library. This is part of DirectX9.

    There are 3 possible solutions.
    1. Make sure you have the lattest subversion of DirectX installed (June 2010 I belive). Just because you have DX11 installed does not mean it is the lattest subversion and even DX9 continued to be updated well after the release of DX10.
    2. Try running as an administrator. The DirectX libraries are in a system folder which has some form of permission security in effect. Insufficient permission might result it it failing to even see the libraries.
    3. Windows 7 might have a different system structure to XP. Appending the correct system folder that contains the libraries to the programs classpath or making a copy of that library component at its expected class path might fix this.

    I downloaded d3dx9_35.dll and installed it. Model viewer/editor opens now but it can't open models. Also it gives error.

    Same error or different? We did not make the tool, you should be asking the people who did.
