Thread Starter 
I had this game a long time ago and like it so i figured id buy it again. I was too excited to play it that i didnt bother reading the requirements. I have windows 10, but its for windows xp.

I cant seem to be able to install it.

Can someone help? Any ways around this? I spent 40...

Contact Amazon and explain the situation, they might refund you. I got that game for 10 cents when it launched on PC, Microsoft was doing a promotion of there games for windows live at the time, I couldn't get into it though, not nearly as good as Age of Empires 2 was. imo anyway

I rmember being able to play it on vista and windows 7. So i assumed that it would work. Ill contact them, but it said, no refunds. Crossing fingers. Or if someone here knows a way around it, that would be best.

Thank You
