I downloaded legal copy of Age of Mythology Gold Edition on my XP and works great. I try to download in on my son's Windows 98 and it does not work. It downloads fine but when trying to start AOM it opens up a box with a big red X in it and I click "ok" and it closes with nothing else happening. Any suggestions on what to do to make it work? Thanks.

i assume your son's computer meets min specs. eventhough this does not sound like thats the issue, stranger things have happened. the only other thing i can think of off the top of my head is windows being fragmented and corrupted. FAT32 is not as stable as NTFS. but win98 does not work in ntfs. how long has it been since the win 98 was installed on the computer? if its been a while, that could be the cause. some newer programs will not install on win 98 unless its been reformatted personally, i'd install XP if this is not an option, and its been a while since win98 was last installed, try drfraging and running a scan disk and also dump all temp files with disk cleanup, kind of to optimize 98 a bit. also try the windows update. personally, i'd just reformat if its been a while. reformatting once a year or so is good, just to keep issues like this low. good luck
