Lot's of games require administration privileges to run and almost all of them require them to install. Our games doesn't differ much. Making installers/games required sometimes adminitration rights and sometimes not is a little bit confusing for users. Therefore our games require admin rights to run and setup.
well it used to be that way - but not any longer, thanks to the nagging of UAC in Vista, which - as Microsoft publicly admitted - was intended to piss off the users to bitch at software makers to finally program without the need for Admin/Root access rights.
Furthermore do i fail to see a reason why a GAME requires/d admin-rights to begin with, as it doesn't install drivers and access' those drivers that are already installed for audio/video/3D/LAN-NICs.
In my eyes i call that "quick-n-dirty" programming techniques, falling back on Admin-rights to install software - because of it we have those issues with viruses and Trojan horses. ;)
anyway, great many THANK YOUS to Sprork for his fine workaround - it even works under windows 7 RC :)
