After I installed the game and patched it, I ran the exe. The message i get
from Vista is that the game requires Adminstrator status in run it... Well I
installed my Vista Home Premium, and I know I have admin right in my user
account...

Can anyone point me in the direction to correct this problem... Thx

Though I think most wouldn't recommend it (why a game should need admin
rights is beyond me) but you could simply right click the 'shortcut' icon
and choose "Run As Administrator."

In Vista, just because you are an admin, doesn't mean that everything you
run will run with admin privileges.

Right-click on the .exe; select Run as Admin.......
