Help!? The exception unknown software 0xc000000500 occurred in the application at location 0x006174ba. This now pops up when a game of Age of Empires II is launched at gameranger. I have had no problems previously. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply. I have however, already tried that. I have also reinstalled the affected software. I also did a full reinstall of the OS. Alas, that failed to fix it as well. I was due for a reinstall anyways, as it has been a few years. Anymore suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I encountered this same problem while playing Age of Empires 2 in Gameranger. After extensively searching for a solution the only thing I found is that this problem seems to be somewhat common, yet I found no real solutions.
I have yet to fix this problem. I cannot play Age of Empires anymore until it is fixed.
Richc46, what does it mean the game is corrupted? I reinstalled both Gameranger and Age of Empires without any results. I've been playing without problems for about 6 months, and today this message showed up.

Thanks for the posts guys. I have been playing regularly for 10 months with no problems. Single player works fine. I tried removing each stick of memory separately, that failed as well. I did a full reinstall of OS and all software. I'm thinking of trying to remove each stick again, as it would seem to be a hardware issue. I updated drivers for sound, video, direct-x. This problem doesnt effect anything else.... yet. This sucks, as this is the only game ive been playing lately. Thanks for any help and/or suggestions.
WOO HOO! The problem is solved. It turns out it was a Gameranger issue. They emailed me that they created an update to solve the problem. No explanation about why/how it had occurred, but it is fixed nonetheless. Thanks for all your help guys.
