Age of Empire 3 unhandled exception

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I formatted my disk and reinstalled Windows 7 (same version before installation). But now I cannot install Age of Empire 3 which I had already installed earlier. The error is shown below. What went wrong and both the game and OS are the same as before?


Error message:

Error Number: 0x80040702

Description: Failed to load DLL:MGSPID

Setup will now terminate.

Hi Thelma

I recommend you Install the age of the Empires 3 using the express install in this way all the default settings and folders will be save and also try wiping it before installing it actually works.

But before installing the game scan your computer first for unwanted registry.
