    Subject: Installation error 1158
    I need help with my TWC, it had been running well until now, I had it for like 4 months, I borrowed it to my brother so he could install it and play  with me, but he was unable to install it, so I tried to run it in other computer and when I clicked install, a window with the number 1158 appears...

    Nevermind, i got it thanks to ES_Paragon

    First make sure you have all the latest updates for vista.  Then reboot your computer and click start (or the vista button) , select run, type %temp% then click ok. That should open up the windows temp folder, delete all the files (that you can) from there and close the folder.

    Next check the following.  For XP

    1. Right-Click the start button and select "Explore"
    2. Navigate to the "All Users" directory, then "Start Menu", then "Programs"
    3. Look for a folder named  "Microsoft Games" if it does not exist create one.
    4. Then in that directory, check for a folder named "Age of Empires III" again if it does not exist create it.

    For vista:
    1. Right-Click the vista button and select "Open All Users"
    2. Navigate and open the to "Programs" folder
    3. Look for a folder named "Microsoft Games", if it does not exist create it
    4. In that directory, create another directory called "Age of Empires III"

    Once you have verified those folders exist, or created them, close those windows and try once again to run the setup.exe on TWC disk.

    your ini config  file is probably corrupted, it sometimes happens when you r doing the conversion to iso while   making ur back up copies, the file basically tells the installer what to do. Good news is all u have to is replace the ini file with the one on ur original disk, bad news is your back up copy is useless, delete the iso and try converting it again.

    And the other ba news is that he posted that a year ago and he has most likely fixed it already or given up trying.

    Error 1158 is quite a troublesome one and some people have had no success in resolving it. I don't know how to resolve it myself but here are some suggestions:

    Update Windows.

    Delete temporary files. Here is a good free utility to do this:

    http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/files/file/187-tfc-temp-file-cleaner-by-oldtimer/

    If using XP or Vista download and re-install the Windows Installer:

    Other thoughts: 

    The disk is damaged.

    The CD/DVD drive is dirty or malfunctioning.

    You are not logged on at the system administrator.

    Some other device is causing conflicts -- try installing after doing a clean boot.
