I have a copy of AOE III Vanilla. it is causing me immense pain to install. I have the key. what gives? how much of a pain does this have to be? why should I even bother? I need a REAL ISO DISC 3
I would not bother and join the contest here for a digital edition from Steam.
in steam there is offer for the entire microsft RTS bundle. Try it. its a lot cheaper
if you have the key, you can download a pirate version of the game and just insert the key like you would in a normal installation. IM NOT SAYING PIRACY IS COOL MICROSOFT DONT BAN ME OK
They are always watching… be brave my friend.
