Like the topic title says, every time I run baldur.exe for BG2 and hit "play" the game asks me to run config since it's my first time playing the game, even though it's obviously not because I saved config settings like 3 times already.

Also, I'd run bgmain.exe directly but it asks for admin privileges each time which is annoying.

I have the game installed to "D:/programs/Baldur's Gate 2/", so it shouldn't be the common problem with the Program Files directory, what gives?

Oh, apparently you have to edit your registry to change the accessibility data on bgmain.exe so that it'll run without admin.

Well that was stupid.

Sorry about the useless topic now guys, mods delete this I guess.

You never need to edit the registry to run a program with admin rights, provided you have admin privileges. Just right click on bgmain.exe and select 'Properties', then choose the 'Compatibility' tab. Check off the 'Run this as administrator' checkbox, apply, ok.
Yeah, I did that, it didn't work out. Until I did the weird reg-edit thing.

I do not know why, but since I know enough to tamper with reg-edit I probably should learn why because reg-edit is not a toy.

Don't tamper with reg-edit, folks at home.
