First, do you have any mods installed? Go to your Empire at War folder, usually C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Empire at War\Game Data (somewhere close to that) and under game data go to the "Data" folder. Is there a folder called "xml" in there? If so delete and then restart empire at war.
See if that helps.
