I got the game to run.
BUT the colors were wierd. Tree leaves were red. Outlined in black. etc. Not fun to play like that.
I've heard of some people getting it to play . It is on the compatability list .

The answer is yes. If you run into any trouble, just right click the exe file and go to compatibility. There you can change which version of windows that it is compatible with.

Go into task manager select the processes tab and end explorer.exe then alt-tab back into age of empires
Note: this will make your task bar disapear and any open folders
To restart explorer open the task manager agian in the aplications tab hit new task and type explorer in the box
The colours change because of the Aero theme's poor handling of colours

You can also make a batch file with the following lines and place it in the same location as your age of empires 2 executable

taskkill /F /IM Explorer.exe
Start explorer.exe


Install the directx that came with the game.
