  2. Jordin Red,

    Sure thing.

    First turn off your User Account Controls (UAC) as follows.

    -Open Control Panel.
    -Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
    -Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
    -Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
    -Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
    -In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
    -You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.

    Then go here

    Hello Lee, I have just changed my operating system to Windows Vista... and I did what you suggested by turning UAC off and installing the game but I find now that when I turn my UAC back on, the game will not work???
    Can you explain to me why this is and if you plan on making the game playable with the UAC turned on?
    I don't think it's right to have to have my UAC turned constantly off in order to play my game.

    Regards,

    Cat.
