    How to get Age of Empires II to work under Windows 10


    I am trying to run Age of Empires: Age of Kings undwer Windows 10


    This game seems install properly - no problems reported - from the CD that is part of a Collectors Edition
    If I can make this work I plan to install its expansion pack Age Of Conquerors.


    When I double click on EMPIRES2X.EXE nothing happens. I've tried Windows features Legacy Option, and XP2 compatibility mode and running the game as Administrator all with the same result.


    Can anybody explain, as if to a simpleton, how to make this work. I have read what seems like everything anybody has ever written on this subject, to no avail.

    Age Of Empires The Age Of Kings Multiplayer Crash

    Hi,



    This issue might happen if the Windows Firewall is blocking the game from connecting to the LAN.

    I suggest you to add the Age of Empires the Age of Kings, to the exception list of the Windows Firewall and check if the issue is resolved.

    Follow the steps below.




    • Press Windows key + X key and select
      Control Panel.

    • Click on View by in the top right panel and select Small Icons.

    • Find and click on Windows Firewall.

    • Click on Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewall in the left panel.

    • Click on Change Settings, find and check the Age of Empires the Age of Kings box for both
      Public and Private Columns.

    • If Age of Empires the Age of Kings is not listed, then click on
      Add and select the installed path of the game.


    Hope the information helps. Kindly write back to us for further assistance on Windows. We will be happy to assist you.



    Thank you.
