This is retail install version of this game. If you do not install MSXML it'll actually make it to the main menu giving an error that fonts cannot be used. If you install MSXML you'll get an error that the install is corrupt and the game will crash.

These errors/problems have been reported on older versions of wine, but are listed here (along with possible solutions) in case they pop up again.
Problem: Flickering water and/or memory leak
Solution: Set graphics detail to low and increase your swap size.
Problem: MS EULA Appears below AoM logo on first launch.
Solution: Focus the window using the taskbar or Alt+Tab and then use Alt+A to agree.
Problem: You need MSXML 4.0
Solution: Use the version included on the install CD. Type "wine msiexec /i msxml.msi" to install.
Problem: The installer can't find PidGen.DLL.
Solution: Copy PidGen.DLL from the installation CD and place it in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.
AoM installation may require:
If nothing happens after you click "Next" on the CD Key input screen, you may need this file.
Place the file in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32. Add a new override (see below).
Adding an Override
Run "winecfg" from the command line. Click the "Libraries" tab at the top of the window that appears.
Type the name of the library into "New override for library:" (type "pidgen" for PidGen.DLL). Click "Add",
make sure that "(native, builtin)" appears next to the library you just added. If it doesn't highlight the new
override and click "Edit" select "Native then builtin" and click "OK" and finally click "OK".
