TRS2004 keep asking for 'administrator priviledges' when logged on as Administrator
I orginally loaded TRS2004 in about April this year. It ran for a while, but by August everytime I launched Trainz a warning popup would appear saying 'Please log in with administrator priviledges and try again'. The problem is I AM already logged on as Administrator. It seemed to start happening after a Windows update. I tried reloading Trainz - didn't resolve issue. I did a system restore to before the latest Windows Vista update, and it did seem to bring the use of Trainz back. However as soon as Windows detected I didn't have the latest updates, and installed them, it was back to asking me for 'administrator priveledges' again. I again re-installed Trainz, but did not bring access back. It seems to be a battle between Windows and Trainz. Can anyone please advise.
Having an administrator account is not sufficient to actually run as administrator in Windows Vista and later versions. You need to specifically tell Trainz to run as administrator using right-click > Properties > Compatibility.
