Is there any reason this is the case? I mean, every game you buy installs to
Programs Files; and you even listed the C:\ as a "security-restricted area"!
Is there some way to tell vista to "Show all Files" ? I've been running a
level editor for a game lately, half of the files created show up normally,
but the other half only showed up after I clicked "Show compatibility files";
why is that? Under properties on the .exe i've checked the "Run as
Administrator", but I *am* the administrator; there are no other accounts or
users on this machine.
I'm about ready to move back to XP, I have been using a Vista PC for only 2
weeks now (it was an Xmas present) and I have *never* had so many problems as
I am having now.
