When trying to install Age of Empires III The War Chiefs I get the following error every time I try to install it. Age of Empires III and Asian Dynasties is working fine.
[COLOR=orange]Your .ini config file could very well be corrupted.[/COLOR] [COLOR=orange][/COLOR] [COLOR=orange]Which Windows version are you using: Vista or 7? In either case, you may need to dowload and install ALL updates, then restart your computer.[/COLOR] [COLOR=orange][/COLOR] [COLOR=orange]Also, you may need to run the game in compatibility mode for XP. That is because it is a 32-bit game, but Vista and 7 are 64-bit systems. As such, both systems have a VERY difficult time trying to run games made for XP.[/COLOR]
I'm running windows 7 32bit. When I click on the install button in throws the box in my previous post. So the installation doesn't even start. Is there a way to check my .ini config file and if there is, a way to fix it?
[COLOR=orange]If you cannot even install in the first place, the disk itself might be the problem. Have you tried cleaning the disks? Are they scratched or damaged in any other way?[/COLOR]
I have even tried to install it by copying the file from the cd over to the desktop. Still gives the 1158: error. Where do you think the problem lies. Is in in the setup file or where? Is there a way you can send me you setup file so I can try run it then and see if it works? Thanks for your time and effort.
[COLOR=orange]My best guess is that the disk may be damaged in some way that prevents your computer from being able to read the contents. I hope that is not the cause, but if it is, the only remedy is to purchase new disks. I cannot send you anything, as it is copywrited, and the exclusive property of Ensemble Studios and Microsoft Game Studios.[/COLOR]
Okay then. I'll just torrent a cracked version because I'm not going to pay the price again. This has happened to my first Age of Empires 3 too and I had to buy a new one. Thanks for your time.
[COLOR=orange]For future reference, you should keep in mind that torrents and cracks are also illegal, and should not be discussed. :vikki:[/COLOR]
Give me someting that doesn't work after I payed the full price fot it is also illegal.. ;-)
