I'm experiencing different problems in installing Age of Empires III on a Windows 7 computer and also on an XP system.

On my XP machine, the issue is when installing, it repetitively continues to ask for the CD. For example it asked me to inset CD2, which I did, then it asked for CD3 which was OK, and then for CD2 again, so I put CD2 in again, it thought about it and then for CD2 again, in a repeating cycle. Eventually it recognized CD2, but then wouldn't recognize the final insertion of CD1 no matter how many times I tried.

Any ideas on this one ?

Its a Compaq Presario S5160UK - 2.7GHz Celeron, 2x1GB RAM - Windows XP/SP3, with a 500W OCZ SXS PSU and a BFG OC Ge6800GT video card.

The problem on the W7 system is completely different: it starts the set up process, and after I enter the key, get the error message a window opens with the title "invalid product key message" (it isn't. I've checked it number of times and the XP installation proceeds far past this point) saying: "Error loading the PID Generator DLL. The DLL could not be found! Please make sure the file is available in the installation directory and try again" I've searched the internet and tried everything I could find. This system is an HP Pavilion dm4-1050ea with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
Can anyone think of a solution to this please ?
