I have found my retail copy of age of empires 2 - The age of Kings and would like to play on my Windows XP machine.
The game installs perfectly and once I click - run - I get the loading screen then nothing, it dissapears, no warnings, no hang, just gone.
I have tried using the compatibility mode but none of them work (Eg windows 95 / 98 etc)
I have tried downloading and using the 2.0a patch from the AOE2 site but once I install that the game brings up a warning saying that the disk is not in.
However I can download and play the free demo (also from the AOE2 site) so i'm thinking there is a file or patch missing in the reatail copy I have that has been added to the demo to allow it to play on xp.
Would anyone know of any third party patches or have any extra advice - thanks
I run ATI 1900xt - latest omega drivers
Core 2 Duo
I still love and play AO2 The Conquerors. Just use no cd fix. I'm sure you can find one at megagames.com. Don't know about any computability issues so I would recommend to remove the demo just in case.
