  • Hi zomb0w.

    Age of Empires II is an old game, thus it is highly likely it won't work fine in Windows 10.
    You could try running that game in compatibility mode for a previous Windows version: in the Start menu, right click Age of Empires 2 shortcut and choose Properties; in the Properties window, click the Compatibility tab, check Run this program in compatibility mode and select the operating system from the list. Click Apply and then OK.
    You could also use the Run program made for previous Windows versions feature under Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.

    Bye.
