Question about Microsoft Age Of Empires for Windows

4 Answers

When i install age of empires, it installs to 100% and freezes.

I bought age of empires I&II gold and when i try to install the games they will load to 100% and stop, if i let it set for about an hour it will say installation complete but the game does not install. my o/s is windows vista. i have age of mythology and it works great, that's why i don't understand why these games won't work since mythology has higher requirements. any help would be great.Thanks.

Explore the disc, and on AOESETUP.exe, set the compatibility to Windows 95. It should install fully. Now, if only I could get my computer to stop with the BSOD when I exit the game..

Some older games are not good enough for vista. Even some newer games have been known to have problems on vista. I am a huge age of empires fan myself. I have vista on my computer. Age of empires II worked fine. I never tried AOE I on i though. If your version of vista is 64 bit, this may be your problem. If you have 32 bit your problem may lie elseware. Based on your problem though, It sounds like an OS problem. You may want to downgrade your OS.

My problem is i want to download the game age of empire gold minning eddition what will i do to download this game to my computer loptop?


Assuming you are talking about Age of Empires II: Gold Edition or Age of Empires III: Gold Edition, those games aren't available as digital copies. You'll have to acquire them in a retail store or through an online store. Furthermore, downloading pirated versions of games is illegal and means to do it will not be given here.

Age of empire gold editoin keep freezing at 100% during install. Have Windows XP, enough free space and all other system requirements. This seems to be a big problem with this disc. I have run scan disk...


Are you having problems with the installation OR running the game?
If installation freezes at 100%, try waiting a little bit longer. It can take a little while for the installer to finalize the installation process.
You could also try copying the contents of the CD to your hard drive and running the installer from that. That way, the installer would no longer need to read from your CD-ROM to complete the installation. If you encounter an error while copying, then your CD is damaged and you might not be able to install it properly.

As i try to install Age Of Empires 3:Warchiefs, windows says that Age of empires 3 is not installed for current user, although im the administrator. Can i force install Warchiefs? I have windows 7 premium


It is just an expansion pack. You must first completely install AOE 3, then the expansion pack will have the directories it needs to install to already created for it. If you have the first CD in the GOLD pack, reinstall from that first then try the Warchiefs disk.

Game installs 100% ,starts updating system files, wont finish.


You need to keep the Age of Empires install disk (usually labeled "Play Disk" or is just Disk 1 in older games) in your disk drive while you play the game.
