Unfortunately, you don't have a lot of options to correct this behavior for
any program that is not compatible with Vista.

When this program runs, it is trying to access restricted areas in the
system and the registry where administrator privileges are required. A
simple manifest file programmed into the game would fix the problem, but
this is something that the developers of that game would need to do.

You might want to check the website of that game developer for any
compatibility updates.

share programs. if comuter is new call them
