Game stops after loading troops on transport

I tried playing AoE de tonight and on multiple tries it would just quit I tried it a number of times, and it was always the same thing. When I would load some troops on to two transport ships, as soon as I started to move them the game would just quit. I tried restarting my laptop, tried taking saves before doing this action but to no avail. I’m not sure what else to do. As an fyi, I did have a Windows update a couple days ago, but I played yesterday and didn’t have any issues. Thanks in advance for any help!
