    Hallo [​IMG]

    Please could you all give me some advice on how to sort this problem out! It concerns a game I just bought - F.E.A.R

    I have two Windows login accounts on this computer. One is my Admin account the other is a very Limited account I created using the Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit.

    F.E.A.R runs perfectly under my account.

    But it will not even start when you log in under the Limited account. Is the game programmed this way to only work under the Windows login it was installed under or something?

    Along with F.E.A.R I also bought Far Cry - and that game runs perfectly under both Windows logins. So I dont know what the deal with F.E.A.R is :confused:

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanx :)

    Right Click > Run As...

    Allows you to run a program under alternate credentials - ie as a different user. You need the "Secondary Logon" Service started to do this though.

    Can you make a shortcut so it automatically loads with "Run As" to save having to right click everything?
