Default Program to run Age of Empires II in windows mode?

I love Age of Empires II, but it is a fullscreen game that has no option to make it windowed. I have seen some DirectX windowing programs but none of them worked except one...and the video got all crappy and like there was no mouse that I could see...so that isn't an option.

Well. You could just do the CTRL TAB trick... But I am not sure of any program like that.

From what I have seen on the interwebz, it can't be run in a window.

Hmmmm cant think of anything. But the reason i think they do that because it would getting annoying for u to scroll up and down the map. I played that game i got the latest ones.
