Age of Empires 3 doesnt install in Vista - Help?

Posted: 01-13-2009, 07:18 PM

Hi all

After many attempts to install AOE3, it only 'installs' a
IDD_CUSTOMEXPRESS. Which of course doesn't play

What I have tried to this point and a few times; Installed Vista SP1
Then I get the compatability issue pop-up. Then I installed the AO
vista patch 1.12.

I dont understand why it 'installs' to use a word then doesnt play
This game does install on other computers so it is not a product ke
issue. It did install on the same computer when it had XP running

Can anyone suggest a solution plz? I am also going to install the othe
exp packs, Asian Dynasties I have yet to play. I purchased these game

I have also tried installing as administrator and the dos promp
command that someone posted here previously to enable admin always o

Thanks in advance~ I just want to play dont care about the on-lin
feature either..
