Installed AOE3, but its not working!? Help please!

I've installed all 3 Disc and tried starting up the game, but nothing came up at all.

Message bubble: "The color scheme has been changed to Windows 7 Basic"
"A running program isn't compatible with certain visual elements of Windows."

Don't have a clue on what to do.

Hi Dorado,

I've tried looking everywhere on the icon properties and it doesn't show the Compatibility Mode Tab anywhere. All I get is General, Shortcut, Security, Detail, and Previous Versions.
