Question about JoWood Productions World War 3: Black Gold

1 Answer

I have a new computer and i am trying to install, from the original disk, World War III Black Gold. it seems to install fine but the game will not start. Ive tried many different ways of starting it i.e. start menu, inserting disk and starting there, and searching the program and starting it from its location. None worked. I do have a very new computer and thought maybe it was compatibility issues. Or the software may be too old for my machine. Other than that, I have no idea whats wrong. any help will be appreciated.

Yep. Compatibility. But there is hope. Find the game icon. Right click it and click Properties... I have a new computer - adracamas_7.png
Then click Compatibility. Once there check on 'Run as Administrator', then Ok. Try it again. If it still doesn't want to work then go back to the same windo and click 'Run Program in Compatability Mode for...' and select a previous version of Windows (XP SP3 for example). If that don't work push it back a little further and further until you find one that works.

I have a problem with World War 3 Black Gold. I've just installed it on my PC. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and the game won't start. I double click on the WW3.exe, small black screen...


I had the same issue and resolved it by downloading the World war 3 black gold 1.2 Patch - install this and you should be fine. I will still ask you to select a resolution but it will actually let you now.

I got mine from here

Installed the game ok but when I try to play a box comes up saying, wrong disc inserted please insert original gold pack CD/DVD. Why can't i play?


You seem to have a "Not original" game. You have to replace the game ".exe" with the cracked one. Your CD has a folder that called crack. Copy all the contents inside this folder, to the game's installation directory. Thanks. Please Rate my Solution.

Error message wrong disc inserted please insert original disc gold pack sweaw


i tried EVERYTHING to fix this. nothing worked, went to the retailer where i bought it and got another copy. same problem.
solution- go to cosmi.com, go to the customer service page, and tell them exactly whats going on. i did this and within a day i had recieved a reply e mail and within a week i had a brand new copy of the game e mailed to my house and this one works fust fine. my guess is that when they condenced the game onto one disk that someone somewhere screwed up pretty bad and they know it. it is NOT on the list of games when you send them the E mail but it IS on the list of supported titles. just pick any game and in the header write something like THIS IS NOT CONCERING (whatever game you selected). I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH STAR WARS EMPIRE AT WAR GOLD PACK. and like i said, customer service was great. game is pretty sweet too. kthnxbai.

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.

Delete the c:/program files/activision folder, Run a registry cleaner such as CCleaner, that should be able to remove all the invalid registry settings.
