Question about Microsoft Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings for Windows

2 Answers

Installation for Age of Empires 2 stalls.

When I install Age of Empires 2, the process goes to 100% normally, but then the "Updating System Settings" popup remains indefinitely. It won't finish doing that, so the installation just sits there. Before I reformatted my computer, the game installed just fine.

I almost shot my self trying to install this. I had the exact same problem. What worked for me is go to the cd and explore. Right click on setup icon and got to the compatibility tab. set to windows xp, click on "run in 256", also "run in 640x480" click on run as administrator. Apply. Then try to run the install. This worked for me perfect.

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.

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.

I lost my agesofempire2 installation code


The installation code is for personal use only, so you cannot share this.

To find your own code: it is usually inside the box, or on the backside of your manual.

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.

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..
