Hi, I recently tried to reinstall and play an old game on my windows 7 64bit desktop. Installation goes smoothly but when i go to play AOC it crashes after the splash loading screen and gives me an error. My event viewer gives me this,

If anyone can help me solve this issue please let me know as i have already tried several ways to fix the problem so i can play and none have worked. I made sure all of my drivers are updated bios updated etc. Any other reason why i could be getting this error?

Have you tried running it in compatibility mode for another OS? Right click the icon, go to properties, compatibility, check the box and change the OS in compatibility mode.

yes i have tried the compatibility mode for AOC i tried running it in several different modes from XP with service pack 2, all way back to windows 98. Nothing worked I think it might be something wrong with the executable file being installed in the program files (x86) folder and its going through the syswow64 folder that seems to be were the issue is mostly coming from.

Have you tried reinstalling it into another folder? I don't know how the game works, but most let you choose a place to install it into. Just as well I haven't seen anything about AOC being compatible with Windows 7, but I have also seen people playing it so I'm not sure what the issue could be.
