Not associate message for Age of Empires III online game?

So I used AOEIII play online a decent amount, and I always want to play in games with my only friend. I stopped to play for... two months. Then the other day we decided to play a game together. For the last four days, we tried to bring in games, games and invite each other, etc.. It won't work. I can't get... Fifteen for topic % of the games I try to join, and I can host games very well. However, I don't know why I can't join many games and why I specifically can't join games with him. We tried games hosting and inviting each other. Always get a failure to join. And when I find someone whose game I can join, I try to invite him, but he cannot participate if I'm in the game. If I leave, however, he can join. I never got a message saying incompatibility CRC, or something like that, just the standard "failed to join. It is incredibly boring because it is a game, we're both very interested and enjoy. I hope someone can give me some solutions. Thank you advance!

Oh, and it's not my firewall. I made sure that it is off while I play.

  • Buy a new product key for Age of Empires III?

    I want to test my courage online, but it seems that I can not access my old account. I would like to know if I can buy a new one, or maybe just to buy a new game? If so, I prefer to transfer my old civilizations of solo and others in the new game. How would I do that?

    «.. . It seems that I can not access my old account. »

    Exactly, what is, or isn't it? Do you have still the original disks and the key code, or

    are you just had a connection problem on site (is still available online) ?

    -You can buy the collection of AOE 3 to the Humble store, or steamed, but it's a bit expensive atm.

    They're probably between 30 and 50% from time to time however.

    -Alternatively, you probably buy the game from e - bay, or similar. I got mine from a pawn shop.

    This game is old enough not to have to worry about the key is limited to the original purchaser code

    like many games these days.

    If you still have old games save file you will be able to exploit this information after having re-installed the game.

    Save the original file, or rename temporarily (I simply add a 1 is at the front of the name).

    In Win7 the games user folder is located in-

    User\Documents\My: Age of Empires 3

    -This game has a lot of things in the folder, so it is best to copy everything in the old folder

    in new game folder.

    Just allow him to replace all or rename the new folder for backup and copy the old folder of my games.

    Restore the original name and your progress should be available.

    [EDIT: I just create an account, and it seems there are still some activity.] You need the original CD/DVD

    This corresponds with the CD key that you have installed the game with when using a basic version disk of

    [the game, so if you don't have the key or the original diskettes, you can buy a new copy].

    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.

  • 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.)

  • 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.

    Stop a download will often break the download, or it did when I was still using dial-up 56 k.
    The best way to get the successful download is to keep the machine running.
    I used to start the download before you go to bed and let it run overnight.
    Is there a particular reason, you must turn off your machine?
    It is also preferable to avoid making another on line jobs who can fly the download of the
    bandwidth when you have a slow connection. When a download is too slow it
    may also cause a corrupted file.

    If it's the only game that was a problem, then you can
    want to try the support of GameStop, but you deleted the file and restarted
    Download to own? If the original has been altered there is no continuous point

  • How to install Age Of Empires III on a Windows Vista or 7?

    I bought Age of Empires III (without extensions, only the original) a few years ago and it worked well on my Windows XP operating system.  I now have a Windows Vista computer and another that runs on Windows 7, and AOEIII installs correctly on either.  On the Vista computer, I get an error message saying the game has known compatibility issues, but there is no solutions when I click on the button "find solutions online.  I choose to install the program even when and installation runs without any problems, but after a few minutes, an error message appears saying that there is an error in opening a specific file and I need to check that the file exists.  I click try again, but the message continues to appear every few minutes.  I tried many solutions online, including the execution of the program in different modes of compatibility and running it as an administrator.  I downloaded a patch for the game, but when I double click on the patch to fix the game, another error message appears saying that there is a problem with my installation.  I checked many sources who say the game is fully compatiable on Windows Vista and 7, but of course, it does not work for me.

    Hi blakesk8dgk,

    ·         What is the exact error message you get?

    Check first if Age of Empire III is compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7 in Windows 7 or Windows Vista Compatibility Center:

    Windows 7 Compatibility Center

    Windows Vista Compatibility Center

    Step 1:

    Take a look at the link to the following article:

    Error messages when you try to install Age of Empires III or Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends: "Error 1935" or "Error 1904".

    Step 2:

    If the game is not compatible, then try to install in compatibility mode and check if it helps:

    Windows Vista - Make sure to run older programs in this version of Windows

    Run Windows 7 - make older programs in this version of Windows

    I hope this helps.
