I have windows 7 ultimate 64 bit but Age of Empires 3 will notwork. I went to the site and downloaded the latest update but didn't solve the problem. I've got plenty of graphpics to handle it(8800 GT)

In my experence with the Windows 7 beta I'd say that if it runs on XP or Vista it will run on Windows 7.

I installed probably 30 game onto my Windows 7 computer some of which included games like: Army Men,

Age of Emipres II, Rome: Total War, Theif Deadly Shadows, Half-life 2 (with episodes), Unreal 3, and

CoD / CoD:MW. I'm thinking the problem is not with Windows 7, but rather your computer and it's install

of Windows 7. If you're experenced in PC gaming then you already know that random things can go wrong

with software files. These errors can cause a game that was working 30 minutes ago to stop working or

it can cause a game to not be able to install and lauch correctly, like in your case.

When I experence trouble like that I've always found that digging though google will usually solve my problem

or at very least point me in the right direction.

Make sure you have the latest patch AOE3 patch installed. It resolves Vista issues so I guess it also applies to W7.
