AOE3 won't even install or load up
Yeah, such as the title says. I have no damn idea what the hell is going on with this game, but I bought it for $9.99 before it got bumped up to $19.99. I been wanting this game for AGES! I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, with an EVGA GTX 460 1 GB GDDR 5 graphics card, with 6 gigs of RAM. There were 5 steps of the set up, and it didn't even finish them when I get the error message that's something like "AOE3.exe has stopped working". I don't even get to ANY start up screen or anything. Hell, the thing never even starts. I've tried going to the Steam common folder where it was installed (or so it would look like), I run the .exe launcher in Admin mode, but it crashes again with the same error message. Now, before anyone even says for me to run Steam in Admin mode, I can't even do THAT. I have no idea why, but my Steam crashes when I try loading it up after I put it in Admin mode. No one else uses my computer, it's in my room, so there's no other account on it. I am up to date with my graphics card and whatnot.
Does ANYONE know what's going on and how to fix it? Oh, sorry, I forgot to mention I am using a duel core.
