Well, what d'ya know? It only went and bloody worked, didn't it? Solution is you!
Does that mean I'm going to have to do that for most games or is there a universal 'run as admin' option somewhere? I'd have thought that being the admin would have been enough. But I'm not up on all these newfangled OS.
Well, i'm glad that worked ;)
I'm fairly new to win7 myself and i never had vista, but i think that even when running an admin account, there are different previleges assigned to apps...or something :)
As a rule, i always tick that box for games, but i can't say if it's really necessary to do so for every game/app...
