Age Of Empires Conquerors fails to load

Alright I have read so many threads and posts trying to figure this one out.
I have AoK and it runs fine.:geek:
I have AoC and I can rarely get it to load. The only time it loads is if sometimes I load AoK first then immediately load AoC.:confused:
I have played around with every possibility on the compatibility mode and resolution and I still get the same result. AoK does not need to use the compatibility mode at all. :mad:

When I go to load AoC I receive,
"Age of Empires II Expansion has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.":cry:

It does not notify me. It works on my laptop which has windows 8.1:mad:
I have reinstalled both AoK and AoC many times clean.
I have tried both minimal and maximum on installing the game.

Please Help!

Thank you,

BJ

Steam has a somewhat upgraded version of that game that works in the Win8 environment. I myself have not been able to get those games to work with Win7 or 8, or to work well at least. I recommend tossing the old game that was created for XP, and purchase one from Steam or similar platform.
