    I just bought this game but can only get it to work from the "admin" screen. I did all the changes I was told which were the following:

    Owner = my user name
    Access = read & write

    Group = staff
    Acess = read & write

    Others = read & write

    I also downloaded the update 1.0.5

    After all that, the game still quits, right before the game is about to start. Any other ideas as to what might work?

    install the game from the user you want to play it on.

    I was told by AoE support not to use the installer. Just copy the game folder from the CD to the hard drive and run from there.

    Also, I think there is a patch file available.

    I tried that but it would not let me install it that way. I could only do it form the "admin" screen. Do I need to change some preference so I can install it from any user?
