Problems with the TTR PC install... Sat, 08 September 2007 19:04
Hi... just wanted to know if anybody has tried installing the PC onto Microsoft Vista? Mine keeps saying I have to be an administrator to install - but of course, I am the administrator.

Just want to know if it's a known problem or not.

Thanks,
Remissna

Yes this is a known issue with Vista.
Here is a workaround:
Right click on the installer executable and choose "Run As Administrator". The installer will then run fine.

Brice...

Might be a dumb question, but what is the "installer executable" that I'm supposed to right click on? Right clicking on the "install" button when the program comes up does nothing of course... but you know I tried it anyway Smile

I'll be thrilled if this works!

Thanks,
Remissna

You'll have first to "Explore" the CD content, then locate the a file called "TT2R English.exe" (or something like that), and right click on it, then choose "Run As Administrator".

So glad someone else had the same problem as me and the answer was publishered here! I would've been so cranky if I couldn't install it after waiting for it to be shipped to Australia!
