    First off, I'm assuming of course you have a 64-bit processor with Windows XP 64 installed and running. With that being said, what error message(s), if any, are given at install time?

    Well Vivd_vibe,
    I am running a 64 bit system, the message I recieve is "Your system has not been modified to completed installation at this time, please run setup again. I ran the setup program 3 times no help.

    if u have a out of the box system ex... hp, dell, gateway etc....
    even if you have a 64bit processor as most amd's are now you
    dont have 64bit windows unless you installed that yourself

    you pay for a 64bit processor but they give you a 32 bit os :|

    Well, he should be able to install 32bit AA on a 64bit OS anyway though. Are your drivers working right?

    I remember an issue with this!
    If you have a 64bit system installation will fail because it tries to install the 32bit version of directx, on a 64bit sytem this is obviously nuts, but regardless install then fails.

    You need this file:

    Need to be a member to grab it but I can't do it right now as the address is blocked for me (at work)

    I recognize that name.. i go by [GEN3RIC] or open_sfhospital , NLM and I have been playing for years now.


    Anyways, the only issue with AAO on XP x64 (not to be confused with XP 64-bit edition) is that the installer is 16-bit and will not work in x64. Some people do some sort of modification to the installer to make it 32-bit and it will install fine with that in place. I dont know the performance or how it works because it is completely unsupported - but I do know people have it installed.
