When i start the program it brings up the windowsxp error message,saying windows encountered a serious problem,do you wish to send this report to microsoft y or n,ive also try using the compatablility mode ,but no joy.
I love that game and mine runs fine on xp pro but here is something that happened to me a while back and I I dont know what or why but I was having trouble with different programs acting that way and stuff that I know runs on xp because I had previously had it installed on the same machine prior ro a format? So what I did was a repair of my winxp pro not a reinstall a repair it wont change any installed programs but does fix some crap that happens for unknown reasons ( Ghost in the Machine) lol
i suggest try installing a fresh copy of xp on your 2nd hd and see if aoe2 works or not. If it does work then there is probably a software conflict on ur current hd. If it still doesnt work then I suspect it is a hardware issue most likely with your graphics drivers.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
