Age of Empires III icons__

After uninstalling Age of Empires III and the expansion of the warlords are two icons remaining in the GameExplorer Panel. They are in a section called "Unspecified" at the bottom of the Panel. I can't right click to find a file location. Does anyone know how to get rid of them? I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. The game was initially installed on 11/28/09, so a system restore would be difficult if not impossible. I have done several searches and deleted everything related to AoE with no luck.

Problem solved. I used "drag & drop" to create a link to the icons in GameExplorer on the desktop. Delete the shortcut on the desktop also removed the icon in the "Not specified" section of the GameExplorer. I also had this problem with an icon to Batman Arkham Assylam demo that was left in GameExplorer. I don't know why it worked, but it did. Thank you.

  • Windows 7 - Assassin Creed and Age of Empires III issues

    Just bought the Assassin Creed original to play on my new laptop computer.  I met "minimum"; However, the gameplay is slow and audio lagging during the cutscenes.  Here's my laptop specs, which I thought would be able to play the game without any problems:

    Windows 7 64 bit, Dual Core processor Intel Pentium T4500 (2.3 GHz), 320 GB Serial ATA-150 - 5400 RPM hard drive, 3 GB of installed RAM, Intel GMA 4500 M Dynamic video Memory Technology 5.0 graphics processor - that it is a new laptop with very few facilities since the purchase, I have a lot of memory left.

    Do I not sufficiently meet the requirements to actually play the game without delay?

    I am also interested in buying Age of Empires III to play on my laptop, but I'm afraid it might not work either with my current setup.  So before you buy, do you know if my system will play AOE III without delay?  I guess I could try the demo first and see how it goes.

    The AOE III demo works fine on my computer, although the compatibility site says it is not compatible...

  • Age of Empires III: Asian Dynasties uninstalling problem

    I installed Age of Empires III and two packs of its expansion. But when uninstalling, I left the Asian Dynasties and proceeded with the other two, and now I can not uninstall the package Asian Dynasties. Even when I try to install all the Asian Dynasties installation program once again, try to uninstall and fails to do so, stating the reason in the form of two missing files. Is it possible to remove the traces of the previous installation, as all the files in the installation directory have been removed?

    Hey aniket_s,

    What are the two missing files?

    You may need to rely on software from third parties to remove the traces of the previous installation of the registry.

    Please use your favorite search engine, and find one that is used.

    Before reinstalling the game, temporarily disable any anti-virus, firewall, anti-spyware software running on your system, then try reinstalling.

    To get help, view your concerns the forum below.

    Note: Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be resolved. Software using third party is at your own risk.


    Note: Runs the computer without antivirus software or firewall is a potential threat to the computer; don't forget to activate the security software after completing the troubleshooting steps and after you have identified the problem.

  • Age of Empires 3 does not start on a vista machine, get this error "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\d3dx9_25.dll is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error."

    I'm trying to play age of Empires 3 on my computer running windows vista Home premium and the program does not start. I get the error message: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\d3dx9_25.dll is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error." I tried many suggestions from Microsoft (resettlement program, reinstall in safe mode, update & reinstall the drivers for my video card, the compatibility issues with vista, updating and reinstalling directx 9.0 c, install vista service packs 1 & 2) but nothing has worked so far. I was able to play the game on the same computer with windows xp installed (it's a different hard drive that is not in the computer, and everything is the same) and it worked fine. My computer is old enough, but like I said the game worked before installing vista. ASUS A7N8x deluxe, AMD Athlon xp 3200 +, ATI radeon 9600, 2 GB OCZ ram that all suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

    Hi Raygun55,

    Welcome to Microsoft Vista answers Forum!

    This problem may occur if the Microsoft DirectX file that is mentioned in the error message is damaged or is not copied correctly.

    I suggest that you copy the file manually by following the steps and check if you are able to play the game without any problems:

    Manually copy the file

    To do this on a computer that is running Windows Vista, follow these steps:

    1 insert the disc 1 CD for one of the following games into the player from the computer:

    o Age of Empires III

    o Fable: The Lost Chapters

    o Zoo Tycoon 2

    o Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends

    2. click on start to reduce this includes this image and then click Documents.

    3. Locate, and then click computer.

    4. search and then click on the CD drive.

    5. Locate and then click the following folder:

    CD player :\ DirectX9

    Note In this folder path, the CD player represents the drive letter of the CD drive.

    6 double-click on, right click on d3dx9_25.dlland then click copy.

    In Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends, double click right-click d3dx9_27.dlland then click copy.

    Note Use the file for the x 64 version of the Windows operating system.

    7. find one or more of the following folders, depending on the games that are installed on the computer:

    By car : \Program Files\Microsoft: Age of Empires III

    By car : \Program Files\Microsoft Games\Fable - The Lost Chapters

    By car : \Program Files\Microsoft Games\Zoo Tycoon 2

    By car : \Program Files\Microsoft Games\Rise of legends

    Note In these folder paths, drive represents the letter of the drive where the game is installed.

    8. right click on the folder of the game which is the part that is installed on the computer, and then click Paste.

    Note If you have installed more than one game on the computer, repeat steps 5 and 6 for the other games.

    You can check the link for more information: error message when you try to start a Microsoft game: "the file d3dx9_XX. DLL was not found":

    Alternatively, you can try to install the game in XP compatibility mode and check if you are able to play or not.

    Right-click on the game > click Properties > click on the Compatibility tab > select for XP compatibility mode > click OK.

    Let me know if it worked.

    Thank you, and in what concerns:

  • Whenever I try to install Age of Empires III I get error 1305... help!

    Whenever I try to install Age of Empires III, I get error 1305 says "error 1305 reading the file. What I'm doing. This game was not cheap I just installed a new game if it's not my drive. I have 400 GB free, so I have all the space in the world. Finally, he worked on my old pc. I need help, and I'm very crazy. Help, please.

    Hey AnthonyMac,

    Consider the weather there is no scratches on the disc, clean the program CD-ROM or DVD. To do this, use a CD-ROM cleaning kit, or gently wipe the silver part of the CD-ROM with a cotton cloth soft and lint from the center of the round trip of the CD-ROM.

    If you still have the difficluties installing this, try to copy from the landfill, which is all the files which are there on the CD and see if you get any errors during the copy. If you have errors to copy from the CD, then the CD is wrong. You can download the installer from the Microsoft Web site:

    Use this download for the trail version and use the product key that is on the CD to convert it into a full version.

    I hope that it works and would like to hear from you.

    Thank you
