Welcome, medievalman. Have you had any of the graphics troubles most of us have seen with AOEII?

Have you installed the v1.0c patch? What about running it in Compatibility Mode?

Right-Click on the shortcut, left-click "Properties", then look for the Compatibility tab. You might go down the line backwards in time starting with Vista until you get one which (hopefully) works. Since the expansion pack came out right at the time WinXP was hitting the shelves, that might be a good bet.

Worth a shot, anyway.

my conquerors works fine. It gave me problems in the past but then I stopped playing it for a year or two. Tried it a month ago and it works magically.

Going to this thread Windows 7/Vista Color Fix and following the advice at the very bottom of the registry worked for me. Involves no programs, no closing explorer and restarting explorer. Adding this to your registry and you can play with no color issues and you can alt tab out of the game during play and back in again with no issues. At least no issues I for me so far.
