aoe? as in the first one?

Maybe because it s older it doesn't support xp. Can't xp run games like it is an older version of windows? (idk I don't have xp)

man if u want help u should explain ur problem much more than that
ex: what happens when u install it? Succesfull/not
whats exactly is wrong with it? u cant play it ?
Is it original or cracked allthough today i think u get the original for free

i dont know if aoe works on xp but if it works on win 98 is should work
if it works on win 95 only then it wont work on xp
i suggest u get at least aoe2 its much better and it surly works on xp because i have it and it works fine on my xp sp1

hope u give more explanation next time.

There's no problem with win XP, in fact AOE 3 only runs in Xp.

XP is the only windows that can't play DOS games,and quiet a few older games,so comparing 98 to XP is kind of dumb.

AOE2 is better in some area's of the game but not all.I still enjoy playing AOE.

He said AOE not AOE3.

And did you try seeing if there was a patch for it?
Games like FFVII won't work on XP without a patch...

man stop tryen to prove me wrong i said aoe not aoe3 and i said that if it works on win98 it will work on xp doesn't matter if it will need a path or not
If it doesn't work on win98 neighter then it wont work on xp no matter what u do because as u said it will be a dos game.
and no compairing 98 to xp is not dumb i know what im saying win xp is based and build on win 98 structure exept that it doesnt use dos.

Dude, your wrong in comparing win98 with XP. its just like comparing apples with oranges. peace! Cool

WinXP is based on NT(Windows NT, Window 2000) technology and not 9x(Win95, Win98, WinME) technology. That is the reason why most of the old applications that run on 9x technology doesn't run and/or have compatibility issues with WinXP eventhough there is a compatibility wizard bundled with XP.

Hope that helps! Smile
