Hello my problem is that i cant install age of empires 2 on my pc... when i press run it says c:users\george\downloads\age-of-empires-2.exe is not a valid win32 application... what should i do???please...


There can be multiple causes for this.

1) It is possible that you're clicking on the age of empires game already, but while age of empires isn't on your PC yet. Meaning you should Install the game another way. Just go "Start" > "computer" > (E:) drive. This should start up the game properly.

2) If this is not the problem, the problem might be that your data is corrupt or just damaged. Make sure your CD is clean. If you're not using a CD but just downloading the game, then this means the site you would have downloaded it from gives you corrupt data (mind possible viruses then!), meaning you should download it from another site.

If this does not solve your problem or does not accurately answer your question, please give more info about what exactly you are doing/using.

Age of empires 2 for mac doesnt work on my user


I bought my white mac book exactly a year ago... so its still pretty new I guess.... heres what you do
1. install "age of empires 2 1.0.6 update" from this link:
http://www.destineerstudios.com/support/aoe2.html

2. right when starting the game, hold the command or the apple button and a option screen pops up.  It will now allow you to select "force 256 colors" due to new update.  Check that box and press play.  some forums say you also need to select "don't play intro movies" or select don't change resolution or something like that but I did not have to do that.  So I can also watch intro movies... yay.   All I did was select "force 256 colors".  Hope that helps.  It took me an hour searching online to find the solution.
That should fix the problem.
Some forums say that I have to  change resolution 640 x 480 as well but I did not have to say that either.

Age of empires 3 problem


The error message you got would show up in the following scenarios:
1. DirectX not up-to-date.
2. Video card drivers old.
3. The game being played with a not supported video card.

Check for the above mentioned and it should be either one of them.
