Check out this news post here and that should help you.
You should try holding the ctrl button down, or temporarily shutting down your firewall.
No. Never disable your firewall while you're connected. Ever.
It is essentially one of the single dumbest things you can do as far as system security is concerned.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
yea tried doing tht , ( i mean downlaoding the new patch) but still the same message is coming up which is extremely annoying :mad:
Could you please upload a screenshot of the specific error?
I did a quick search and seems someone has solved this issue.
The following should work:
(Add age3.exe into the DEP exception list) What I did is under "System" in Control Panel. Goto "System Protection". Under Adnaced Tab, click on Settings under Performance. Click on Data Execution Prevention tab and add the age3.exe into the exception list. Then click ok.
(Run the game as administrator) If you got error about writing logs in the AOE3 directory, right click on the shortcut. Under the Compatibility tab, check the "Run this program as administrator". Then click ok.

Hopes this helps.
No problem. Enjoy.
