Can ''Age of Empires'' run on a netbook via SD card?

I am a fan of the original ''Age of Empires'' and I have the Gold Edition as well - both on original cds.

I now have an Advent 4211 netbook which I travel with, but which doesn't have a cd drive, hence I can't play ''Age of Empires'' away from home.

I have an 8GB SD card available and I'm looking to find if I can put ''Age of Empires''onto the SD card, install and then run it on the Advent 4211. I'm not fussed about seeing the pre-game cinematics.

Thanks for your time.

    Thanks for that, but even though the Advent runs XP there are issues;

    1. I had to find another laptop to run the install CD, because when I ran it on the desktop it wants to uninstall my desktop AOE.

    2. Even after installing onto the SD card (minus cinematics), clicking the .exe files generates an alert message "PLease insert CD in cd drive and restart AOE"

    So I'm still stuck :-(

You can if ur advent is running a windows format, if it is a linux based, you will need a linux copy, but yes you can! you have to install the game to the sd card, just like you would to a regular hdd. I have the original warcraft and warcraft 2 on an sd card, that i use with my ASUS

    you need to download a no cd crack for the program! My mistake, I thought it was implied that you would need that...! Its not hard to find, search for Heet cracks or razor cracks and use AOE for that....I took the way you asked the question that u already knew you would need a no cd crack...i will search for one for you too!!! Just fix the percent correct that u left me, how big is ur sd card???

  • ComputerMan0 Jan 12, 2009 should have a no cd and program download you can use!

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.

Hi, I am trying to load Age of Empires - Collectors Edition onto my PC. I am currently using window XP which it states is compatible however, the game will not install, it goes through the installation...

You shouldn't need a patch to complete installation. The most common reason for an incomplete installation, in my experience, are incompatible drivers. Go to your hardware manufacturer's sites and get some updated drivers and see if that fixes your issue.

When I insert my Microsoft Age of Empires Gold Edition CD and try to play A Single Player game I am asked to insert a disc when it's already inserted.

try unistall the game with all its components.(use a perfect uninstaller or smth like this)
reinstall the game and see if you have the same problem.
if you do, try use a restore point to a time that worked.(save your documents first). this is a trick for not reintsalling your os. but it would be a very wise thing.
hope it was helpfull

My age of empires gold edition CD is inside the disk but it says you need the CD of it?

If you legally own the game you can use a so-called crack if the disk isn't recognised. This circumvents the CD-check, so you can still play it. Get one here.

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.
