I can't install the game for some reason. I will click on the file and windows says it can't open the file, and then tells me to select a program to open it with.

What do I do?

Oh, I don't think I was clear enough. The file looks like a blank sheet of paper. I've uploaded a picture:
As you can see, this has happened to 2 other mods I tried to download. I'm really not sure what's going on.

The first experiences with this mod are fantastic! Before I play hundreds of hours I have some questions though, that the first play did not answer.
Does this mod have:
Building in owned villages?
Persuading others into war?
Advanced sieges - building ladders etc?
No custom commander like functions I guess?

I believe you must start with at least 150 renowned. That will let you join as a mounted troop. Then you can be promoted from there. I think you may need to start a new character because he will never be able to get promoted from infantry or archer to knight. Hope this helps.

Check out my Anno Domini Lets play series. Story driven with a touch of role play. The Rebellion is about to start. Get caught up so you don't miss the action.

Its alright, I like the setting and the map layout, but needs more troop variations.
