Age of Empires III setup.exe "1628: Failed to complete installation." Why?

Age of Empires III (Game)


* Installation failed link (Image)

- Link

(1628: Failed to complete installation.)


Problem after running "setup.exe" with/without compatibility mode and/or administrator privileges.

Yes, I tried normally with "Administrator Privileges," or in "Compatibility mode" but, I still get the ERROR above. Any ideas, suggestions or help welcome! :)

Also, I tried downloading the Age of Empires III "setup.exe" file from Torrents sites and it worked but before trying to install it I uploaded the file to ""="VirusTotal" and reported back with a "virus/trojan detectetcted" results. Finally, yes it worked but I didn't fully installed the game because of this "VirusTotal" report that I don't want to risk nevertheless.

As far as I know... that's all I've tried and done.

[NOTE:] I'm still looking for a good "setup.exe" file to install "Age of Empires III."


* Computer (System) Summery

- Memory: 3GB (DDR SDRAM)

- Video Card: PNY Verto GeForce 8400 GS (256MB DDR2 SDRAM)

- Hard Drive: free space 12/80GB

- CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3500+ (2200.0 MHz)

- Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (32-bit)

* Other (Additional)

- All hardware up to date. CHECKED!

- All GOOD! :) ... but "Age of Empires III." :(


[NOTE:] I hope, I've provided everything or the right information to get true and good help.) :)
