  1. Hi, I'm trying to install Age of Empires 3, but every time i click on the install icon, a install window pops up saying nothing else than 1158. The only option is to click OK. I've googled this error code, but nothing on it. Any help possible?

    I had the same problem,exactly.

    I went to ATI website and updated the display drivers.

    I read a lot of places where there was a problem with the catalyst 5.5 driver or something like that. I just used there uninstall tool and installed the new driver package. I went to install and it went thru. I'ts playing great now.

    I have an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro with 128MB
    AMD Sempron 2600
    1 Gb of Ram (400 MHz)
    Windows Xp home

    good luck!

    another installation problem

    i keep getting hung up on installing music2.mp3 on the second disc. it stops and pops an error message saying "error 1305". i googled it and it says that it is probably a windows installer problem. i checked and the file that the installer is questioning is definitely intact and in place. i'm wondering if any of you have had the same problem or have any advice. thanks.
