    Age of Empires 3 Won't Work

    Now, now. I did read a few threads on the site hoping to get some answers, but I got nothing. No matter what I do, it won't work. >.<
    I have Vista 64bit SP1, and I installed the 1.12 patch (restarted as well)--but I still can't play AoE3. A Microsoft Windows pops-up saying, "Protection Stub has stopped working."
    What do I do? How do I get it to work? Age of Empires 2 works, why doesn't this one? o.O QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!! XD
