Wars of Liberty won't start

Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:41 am

Previously I've installed Wars of Liberty through a CD installation in my PC, but I can't get it to run - the game simply stopped working shortly after the initial loading screen. Now that I've purchased AoE3 Complete Edition through Steam and reinstalled Wars of Liberty, I run into the same problem again.

Does anybody know what could've caused it?

Did you run TAD before installing WOL
Did you Updated your WOL throuh the WOL Updater in you Age of Empires 3/bin folder?

Yes, I do often play TAD before installing WoL, and updated it through the updater.

After I installed WoL over the AoE3 Steam installation and patched it, it worked when I runned it for the first time, but suddenly suffered the same error again after I quit the game and run it again. Not even deleting the WoL document files and running the game again helps.

My laptop's specs for reference:
  • OS: Windows 8 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3317U @ 1.70GHz
  • Video graphics card: Intel HD Graphics 4000 and Nvidia GeForce GT620M
  • RAM: 4 GB

Yeah, I had (and still occasionally have) that problem too. It's related to the patch used by the game's .exe. There's nothing to do except playing on another computer - and hope that the "other" computer won't have this problem. You can try installing vc redist but it will just reduce the number of error occurence.

And, no, good specs won't make much difference.

Oh so there's no other option. vc redist 2011 is supposed to 'reduce' the occurences (at least that's the case for me but I won't rely on it).
