Title error when trying to install Age of Empires 3: The War Chiefs (the 1st expansion pack in the series)

Tried google. Cleared my cache, made sure Windows Installer is updated (it is) and all that rot. No change. Also note that I was able to install the original Age of Empires 3 easily under Windows 8. Maybe 8.1 broke something?

I might also make a note that the disk seems slightly scratched to my eye. Might just be a bad disk, in which case I'll have to go get a new one.

I assume DVD. Try cleaning and allowing it to dry before trying again. Else contact vendor or go back to the store where purchased for a replacement.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

✔ Best Answer
Apparently it's just a bad CD... it fails with the same error on every system I've tried.

Sending it back to the retailer and getting a replacement.
