    Need help with download and installation of Age of Empires 3


    Hello all,

    I purchased AOE 3 from amazon march 2016. I download and installed it but no shortcut was created so i had no way to launch the game. I contacted customer support and they walked me through it and its worked fine.Recently i had to do a factory reset of my
    laptop and I've logged into my amazon, dl'd and installed again...but the same issue has happened. I contacted amazon, they said they cant help me to contact the aoe. I went there (ageofempires.com) but cant seem to find a support there, hence I have come
    here. Anyone know where i can contact tech support for AoE that can help me with this?

    Thank you

    :)

    if you know which directory AOE3 was installed to you can navigate to there then find the executable file (probably called AOE3.exe) then right click on it then select Create Shortcut from the drop down menu.

    it should automatically set your desktop as the location to create the shortcut but if it does create it in the AOE3 folder you can copy and paste the newly created shortcut to your desktop.

    hope this helps

    Hey there Kobie_ko

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forums for advice on how to hopefully get AoE3 to install appropriately. I can totally understand how being unable to get this to work on your laptop could be disheartening. I suggest trying the steps outlined in our support
    page entitled Troubleshoot game installations on Windows 10 if you haven't already.

    When you get the chance, give those steps a shot and let us know how that helped.

    Thanks for reading!

    Age of Empires: Online, PC

    Just a quick guide to play Age of Empires:

    -You Need: Games for Windows LIVE Marketplace / Steam.

    -Already "purchased" the Age of Empires Online and be in you GFWLive Markeyplace / Steam download list.

    -Wait for the full download and then Install the game.

    -When you open the game after install, it will show you and a pre-loader screen where it will download (again) some updates of the game outside the Install files. after that you had to restar the game

    -Again the same pre-loader screen will appear with the big button "Play" enabled, click it and wait a moments and the game will finally start.

    -it will ask you to sign in (Windows LIVE ID / Steam Account)

    .And you can play by now
