Instead of open the exe file of aoe3 and its expansion (TWC and TAD) to update latest patch. I upload the archived file which contain AOE 3 and its expansion latest patch file that run directly.
I take AOE 3 as example, before doing this, extract archived file to somewhere easy to find and safety
Just open the exe file of this aoe3 patch file, next. a message appear that update the AOE 3 from current version to latest version, for this, is 1.14 , press "yes" and wait until the update is completely done. finally, a message that update completed to latest version is shown. press ok and done
do like example for updating TWC and TAD to newest patch
