Question about Microsoft Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties for Windows

1 Answer

Computer games hestitate frequently.

Last 2-3 years been getting worse. Most games seem affected. I'll play a game and after a few minutes of play it will pause - for just a few seconds - accompanied by a echoing of the sounds last hear. Then it 'releases' for more play, then pauses again, etc. etc.

My computer is old (5 years) so maybe I have some hardware wearing out? or do I need to free up some RAM?

This is due to using outdated hardware. Its not necessarily any one thing. Sure, more RAM and a new video card (even an upgraded processor if possible with your main board) will help. But if your computer is 5 years old, you need a new one for gaming purposes.

I've seen your problem countless times, and if you don't have an upgradeable computer, or its a name brand pc, you will need a newer one.

The reason it seems to get worse, is that #1, your hardware just gets older as time goes on, and #2, games become more sophisticated, resource intensive, and have higher system requirements.

Your computer can no doubt handle a lot of things without issue, but games, anything video intensive, or that require a high % of RAM, processor usage, or video usage are going to give you problems.

Probably means that another game is downloading or something else. It has been happening to me lately. I download several games to try and then play a game and frequently the game I am playing freezes and even clicking on 'Ctrl', 'Alt' and 'delete' at the same time does not always work. I have had to shut down my computer and restart it again. It also could be another program on your computer running as wekk

Since windows 7 you cant Host a game anymore! The only chance to host and play Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe under Windows 7 is to install VMWare Player and then install WinXP on it (VERY EASY AND FAST, you need a WinXP CD or a ISO file). Then you have to activate Direct3D under the settings of VMWare and it installs automatically VMWare Tools. After this you can install H&D Deluxe on the VM and play the game in full resolution and full speed (fps) without any error!

This helps if you have problems with hosting a game under Win7 with these errors:

Game shuts off after a few minutes


Sounds like a graphics card overheating issue. Move the computer case somewhere more open and cooler, and use a compressed air can to clean dust from the case and card.

Sounds like 1- you have a virus or 2- your computer's graphics card is not sufficient for the game you are trying to play. Double check all the requirements, if you meet them you have a virus. Hope i've shed some light on the problem :)

The msi.chm refers to the windows installer help documentation.Probably by any chance, the dvd is scratched making the that particular set of installation files unreadable. Try copying the disk contents to your hard drive prior to installation.Then make the installation from hard drive. There is no other solution because the Error itself is not clear.
