Download Empire Earth
This is the Empire Earth community setup (which also includes The Art of Conquest expansion).
There are 2 variants of the game so be careful which one you choose (note that you can also install both).
(DO NOT SHARE the setup, share this page instead)
By downloading you accept to have Empire Earth and The Art of Conquest extension CD in your possession or to have PURCHASED both games (or Gold Edition) digitally (you can buy it here).
Empire Earth: Original
This is the original version of the game, it contains some compatibility patches and additional content, but does not alter the original gameplay.
This version is compatible with the CD versions of Empire Earth and The Art of Conquest (as long as they are up-to-date) and also with GOG.
If you want to play with strangers you may prefer installing NeoEE instead (if you need both Original and NeoEE, you can install both).
Please note that if you install a mod and want to play with players online, they must also have them installed in some cases. The version of the game in the main menu should match for everyone or you will have an error.
Empire Earth: NeoEE
This version includes a multiplayer lobby that allows you to play with other players, as it was possible to do before on the WON lobby of Sierra On-Line.
It also contains the same compatibility patches and additional content of the Original version but also offer glitch fix and additional game type that don’t change the original gameplay.
Beware, NeoEE isn’t compatible online with the Original version which means that you can only play online with players who also have NeoEE (or in Solo).
This installation is also compatible with the old official NeoEE setup (neoee.net).

NeoEE + Original
The NeoEE and EE Original setup will each perform their own installation of the game, so you can install both NeoEE and Empire Earth without worry! And switch according to your needs when you want to play with certain players, because keep in mind that they are not compatible online.
Open Source Setup Script
You can find on Github the source code of the Inno Setup 6 (6.2) and 5 (Legacy, 5.4.3 ANSI) script. You can propose ideas or add features to suit your needs. But this one will also have to be licensed under GNU General Public License v3.
If you want to distribute a mod you rather use the .eem of the Launcher and not build an entire setup for it.
