    Age of Empires 2/Age of Empires 2: Conquerors Issue


    Hey! I recently formatted my pc and installed Windows 10, and I wanted to play Age of Empires 2. I tried to run it, but it wouldn't run saying "Could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with DirectDraw. My specifications are: GTX 750 Ti, Core i3-7300 and 8GB of DDR4 Ram (2666MHz). What can I do to fix it? It runs Age of Empires 1 and Age of Empires 3 (all expansions too) smoothly, without any issues.

    :)

  2. Age of Empires II Conquerors

    I downloaded Windows 10 and now my Age of Empires II Conquerors don't work. Every time I try it tells me Age of Empires II has crashed.

    How can I fix this without uninstalling Windows 10

    Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings & The Conquerors Expansion - Not Working after Windows 10 Download

    I recently activated my free download for Windows 10 on my desktop PC. I play some new and some old games on this PC. I have Age of Empires 1 with its expansion pack The Rise of Rome, Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings with its expansion pack The Conquerors,
    & Age of Empires 3 with both the Warchiefs and Asian Dynasties expansion packs. These are all from CDs, they are not downloads.

    After my upgrade, I cannot operate AoE 2 Age of Kings or The Conquerors, but #1 and #3 both work. I assumed that part of the problem was because I use a batch file to fix the multicolored graphics only present in AoE 2 because my PC flags the game as making
    changes to the PC and asks for Admin authority.

    The internet granted me one possible fix - activating the default Administrator Account that Windows 10 adds. I did so, but didn't have any change. I also reinstalled both Age of Kings and The Conquerors and readded the batch file.

    Let me describe what's happening: I insert my CD, click on the icon, message appears asking for Admin Auth. to change, I click "Yes", nothing. I get no icon on the task bar, no screen change. This is the same whether or not I right click and choose "Run
    as Administrator" or attempt to run through a third party.

    Please assist if possible.
