Nope that is a important step right now. Once that has run then I will know to proceed on with other steps.
Let me also say that everything I have found on this error points to old drivers with both ATI and Nvidia video cards so we may be on the right track here.

This problem from what I have been able to research about has been a ongoing issue since 2005 so it is very well documented on AOE's site. It seems the common factor is the drivers being older and almost everyone I read said updating cured the problem.

Is there another site I could visit to update the drivers? The one provided is still under maintinance and it appears as it will be for awhile.

I clicked on the link i sent you and it took me to that maintenance notice. In the upper left corner click on the word Download
That will take you to the page where i had you click on option 2
Try doing option 1 and inserting the information manually.
Does this work?

OK I found this in my research.

Go to Control Panel ->System-> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced
Tab -> Performance -> Settings ->Data Execution Prevention tab ->
Activate "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services
only"

Then restart and try, does it help?

Still no luck. That setting was already active. I deselected it and reselected it and applied it and saved. Restarted and am still getting the 1158 error when trying to install AOE3

Grrrr.. This is a strange one for sure.
Have you tried contacting AOE manufacturer directly and asking them?
They might be the only option at this point. The system is running fine other then this correct?

Yes the system is working fine, the problem with contacting the manufacturer is that it was made through ensanble studios who was recently bought out by Microsoft. Should I contact microsoft support?

yep it's going to be Microsoft and HERE is the information.
Since the system is working fine other wise then I would have to say that at this point Microsoft is your best bet. The system as far as I can see is not the problem.
