It is just an expansion pack. You must first completely install AOE 3, then the expansion pack will have the directories it needs to install to already created for it. If you have the first CD in the GOLD pack, reinstall from that first then try the Warchiefs disk.

Good morning everyone, whenever I try to install age of empires 3 asian dynasties-the following information appears: Error: 0x80040702, Description: Failed to load DLL: MGSPIDY, be grateful for your help


You can fix this problem by going into your control panel and removing Age of Empires 3 using the uninstall program utility. Then go into your documents and delete any folders found in Program Files/Microsoft Games folder that are related to Age of Empires. After that reinstall Age of Empires 3 and then try to install the expansion. Hope this helps!

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.

Can't install War Chiefs and Asian Dynasties.


Since you just copy-pasted AoE 3, the installation registry keys were not created. When the expansions are installed, they check Windows Registry first to make sure that AoE is installed. If you have the disk for the original AoE, try reinstalling it. You should then be able to install the expansions.

Installation for Age of Empires 2 stalls.


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.

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..

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.
