So today at Half Priced Books i bought age of empires III on the back it says that it is for windows XP and up ( i have the and up version). I popped the CD in and tried installing it and right before it gets to all the prompts and such it fails every time. I've tried restarting and shutting down my computer and tried to re-install the game however it still says that it is being interrupted but it doesn't say by what. Can you help me please!?! Thanks!

Try running the installation as administrator. Or if that doesn't work, try compatibility mode.

also when it fails to install it comes up and reads as such!

INSTALLSHIELD WIZARD COMPLETE

The wizard was interrupted before age of empires III-the war of chiefs could be completely installed/uninstalled

The system has not been modified. To install/uninstall this program at a later time, run the installation/uninstallation again.
