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.

    Had same problem. Run the installer in Win 98 compatibility mode and will install fine. Game plays fine after that

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 not loading


Age of Empires 3 requires a decent computer to run. If im correct in understanding what you are saying, you graphics card may not be up to date. This is what happend to me on several games. All i had to do was update my video card drivers and it worked.

The recommended requirements are:

- Microsoft Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP
- 512 MB of RAM
- 2.0 Ghz CPU
- 128 MB 3D video card

- 1.5 GB of extra free hard disk space
- 32x CD-ROM drive
- DirectX 9.0c (important)
- DirectX 8.0 compatible sound card
- 56 kbps Internet connection for online play


If you PC has all of the above or better, it should work perfectly.

If you do not have those requirments, download a 3D render that acts as a card for your computer, making your computer play games it orignally cant handly. I recommend "Swiftshader". Just type in google and go to there site, and download a demo. their are harldy any restictions on it apart from a splash logo in the side. when you extract, place the
"d3d8", and the "d3d9" files in the root (main folder) of the game. Then run!

This method is good if you have a good amount of ram (more then the game requirements)

HOPE IT HELPED!!!!!
