I have tried installing age of empires 2 using PlayOnLinux, the installation appeared to go fine but when I try and open the game it says there is a serious fault.

The error report is below, unfortunately this doesn't mean alot to me, I was wondering if you could help, a) By highlighting the problem and b) by suggesting a solution.

Many Thanks

I'm guessing it wants you to put the CD in the drive.

If it is in the drive and the problem repeats, try to find a no-CD crack and apply it to the application directory (open PlayOnLinux, right-click over the AOE II entry, choose Open the application's directory).

It's three months old and you may have given up about it, but just in case someone stumbles upon...
