Question about Microsoft Age of Mythology for Windows

Age of Mythology Discs will not run on my computer

I just bought the game Age of Mythology and tried to install it. When I put it in my D:\ Drive nothing happens. Well it studders in whirrs and sounds like it is trying to auto-start, but eventually the whirring stops and when I check the D:\ Drive it says there is no disc!! I have tried with all of my other games and they all start up right after the tray closes. Is there anything that you can suggest? Is it just a dud game this specific copy?

    Hey. I have the same problem - it's not a "dud" disk I'm affraid. It run on 2 different PC's with no problem. It seems to be a drive-problem and it seems to be a well known issue with age of ... games. I've been looking for a way to work around this problem, but I haven't had any luck. If anyone should "stumple" upon a way out of this problem, please let me know.

Sounds like it just a dud game, is it an offical one? If so, you could try having it cleaned, most game shops will do this for a small fee.

Age of Mytholgy not working

Try uninstalling it, and then go in and manually remove the folder left behind. After that, use a program such as CCleaner to remove any unnecessary registry entries the installation may have left behind. Restart, then try installing again. Hopefully that will work!

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

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..

Is there a problem with the installation or is it saying you need the disk in to play the game?

If it's saying you need the first disk in the drive to play the game then download the following NO CD PATCH.
