Hmm... do you have the game patched to version 1.3 properly before installing 1.4?

tried on a new laptop and same problem. when i try to patch either 1.3 or 1.4 on either machine i get a message that the game cannot be found in the folder i selected. c drive>program files>age of wonders. however i can play the unpatched game just fine. i have used the same disc years ago to play originally and was able to fully patch back then. i don't remember having to browse for the file before.

when i do a file search for AoWSM.exe i get no result, yet i click the icon and away i go with the unpatched game.

You can check the target of a shortcut by right-clicking on it and selecting "properties".

TBH I have no idea what could cause such problems...

I know that when I first tried to use Patches and Mods I encountered a problem that created some chaos for me:

In my program files-folder there was an AowSM-folder, but also a folder named Indie Games, in which was another AowSM-folder.

I do not fully understand how this came to be, but backthen I decided to keep everything aow-related in the Indie Games-folder.

Hope this helps,
kind regards

Do you have full administrator access to your computers? In all the years seeing people with issue installing the game, I find that most situations caused by the user priviledge and security setting in Program Files folder. It's best to rule out that possibility by installing the game elsewhere (i.e: D:\Games).

Another unlikely situation is where you have more than one Age of Wonders installed and you may have accidentally point the path to the other AOW than AOW:SM.

Has anyone found a solution to the issue besides those posted? Mine is doing the same and just won't go. Any help would be great.
