To prevent installer windows from being hidden, change Wine's settings so that the window manager is not allowed to control Wine applications (can be done with winecfg).
In Wine versions prior to 0.9.17, elements such as taskbars designed to cover other applications are not hidden when Age of Empires II is run in full-screen. This can be fixed by not allowing the window manager to control Wine applications (can be changed in winecfg), or by changing the taskbar's options so that windows are allowed to cover it.Multiplayer

Is anyone able to reproduce this? If so, is it only a problem with 1.3.24? Screenshot here: i.imgur.com/ED35W.png

Regardless, I'll look into it a bit more.

err:process:create_process starting 64-bit process L"C:\\windows\\system32\\wine
boot.exe" not supported in 32-bit wineprefix
err:process:start_wineboot failed to start wineboot, err 193
Hasn't changed anything. I tried with and without the WINEARCH line.

You're absolutely right, it seems they were related. I created a new Wine prefix by just moving my old one to a new directory and starting over; the errors I listed before disappeared completely and it no longer has problems installing.
We updated our systems over the summer to Fedora 15 and updated Wine at some point, so I'm sure that had something to do with it. Appreciate the help.

if you like aoe, try aoe2tc (age of empires 2 the conquerors).

I actually own AoE1 and 2, I just don't have the discs and needed to make sure they'd actually install on our systems before I went looking for them.
