Today I tried to install NE again, i downloaded the lastest version from this site. But then this problem showed up. I can't select the folder to install NE (i'm running it as admin)



Do you know any solution to this?

Thanks

Are you using a Steam version of NE? I think it's quite common that this happens to "them."

I suppose you have all the games and the latest patch?

I don't have steam, and i don't know what's the steam version of NE.

And i can't update my game, it says 'there is a problem with your game installation' when i try to install the 1.6 or 1.3 patch, could this be related to the NE installer problem?

Ah, I meant AoE Razz Sorry!

No, it shouldn't be. Weird.

However, since the problem is with your game installation, I suggest uninstalling all of the games, removing any NE or AoE related files - either manually or using a software such as CCleaner, and then installing AoE, TWC and TAD, patching it to 1.3 and then installing NE.[/quote]

Thank you, I'll try re-installing the game, but the problem is that i'm working on a mod (i've made a thread here years ago), and i need to back up it first.

Ah, yes, that's where I remember your name from. If reinstalling it doesn't provide a fix, I don't know what will, at this rate.

Please don't start something. Help instead.

If you can't even update the game via the in-game menu I suppose there is some chance that something is 'wrong' on a deeper level than the NE installer.

I sent a PM to Tubin_Anon1 for helping him. That's the max I can do, but this

was necessary.

Anyway Tubin, you are still not able to update game after re-installing or now you are? Can you go in ESO?

I think i've a problem with my registry, in a few months i'll buy a 'new' pc and then try to install AOEIII again, or get the steam version. Thanks for the help anyway.

But i remember i was able to install NE in an empty folder, just like WOTTA (this was years ago).

Nope, I'm working on the XIX century mod, i've lost almost everything when i installed windows 7. Anyway, i think Knights and Barbarians is better than my old mod.


these are some outdated screenshots of the mod

Can you choose your origin AOE3 folder? (or is it choosen) I could only install it there

(little trick: rename your orginal aoe3 folder and create a new one called Age of Empires III)
