    I am trying to run an application, actually is the instalation set up
    file. However when I open it, it show the following mess "There was a
    file access problem. You have to be logged into Windows as a user with
    Admin rights", even if I run it as a "Run as administrator"" option.
    Could you please help??

    Thanks in advance

  2. Is the application designed to be capable of installing and running on
    Vista? What has this application's manufacturer' technical support had
    to say about this issue?

    Thanks Flavius, yes you are right, this is a game Age of Empires.
    Actually Readme doc says:

    *A. Installing -Age of Empires III-*

    To install -Age of Empires III-, you must have administrator rights on
    your computer and your computer must be running Microsoft Windows® XP.

    so I guess is non-compatible w vista?

    Any suggestion?>

    Thanks for you help!
