    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

  • Age of Empires III: the Asian Dynasties cannot install the "" of the case and would not proceed beyond this file. I have

    Original title:

    Age of Empires III: the Asian Dynasties

    After a few years with Age of Empires III: the Asian Dynasties uninstalled I recently tried to install it. When the Setup could not install the file "" and would not proceed beyond this file. I tried several facilities with the same result. If it is a zero or a problem with the disc, is there no way, far from buying a new copy, which would allow the installation of The Asian Dynasties or would repair the disk? Is it not possible to force the installation to jump before the installation of the file "" and try to find the file online a patch or another source?

    I found similar questions online and was trying a possible solution, which was to copy files from my drive in another file and try to install from there. Then I discovered that windows can not copy a certain file on the disk, called ' YPack_ ~ 1 ' correctly. The copy process stop, just as the installer of The Asian Dynasties had previously and would not then spent the ' YPack_ ~ 1 ' file. I was also unable to copy the file '00002.tmp', but I was able to jump in front of the copy of the file. I don't know if this file is corrupted and critical for installation, were not able to determine if yes, when you attempt to run Setup from the folder Setup cannot start the installation of The Asian Dynasties without the ' YPack_ ~ 1 ' file. I have not found similar questions online and do not know if this is the issue of the installation of The Asian Dynasties or indicates files corrupted on my drive.

    Hi, I could not also copy the 00002.tmp, but I think it might be due to a cyclic redundancy check indicating a damaged drive.

    Maybe try to download this file from the internet and (after checking that it is the right file) replacing the version on your CD.

    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.

  • Cannot install 'Age of Empires III War Chiefs' on Windows 8.

    Original title: Age of Empires III war Chifes does not install

    I got a new computer Windows 8 64-bit. When I tried to install my favorite game Age of Empires III, the expedition of warlords will not be installed at the same time the Asian Dynasties and the Age of regular Empires is installed and works very well.

    I searched the web and couldn't find the answer, when I try to install I get error of 1268. I tried all solution on the web. I'll be glad if someone can guide me throw it.

    Thank you.


    I had problems to install this game as well.
    The error occurred to me was that the program was not installed for all users.
    I found a solution to:
    1. go to computer > C: and the option to display hidden items.
    2. after a hidden folder named ProgramData will appear.
    3. then you should go ProgramData > Microsoft > Windows > StartupMenu > programs.
    4. When you are in that folder you just create another folder named Microsoft Games.
    5. inside of this new folder, you create another one named Age of Empires III
    6. now just try to reinstall.
    It worked for me on Windows 8, I hope it helps someone.

  • age of empires III ERROR 1603 consult windows install help (msi.chm) or MSDM for more information

    I tried to install age of empire III on my computer windows 7, but I got an error until I had to even insert the key (ERROR 1603 consult windows help install (msi.chm) or MSDM for more information). I tried to enter in the files and run the setup.exe as an administrator, but it did not help.

    Anyone know why this happens and how to fix it?

    AoE3 is fully compatible with Win7 and I had no problem at the facility, but it may not be compatible with

    your graphics accelerator if it's an older 'integrated' graphics chip.

    (This should show a different kind of error message, but sometimes Windows spits a seemingly unrelated error message.)
