From an admin account.

Go to the directory where you installed AOM, find the executable file that starts the game. More than likely a derivative of the name of the game followed by exe (Example: AOM.exe)

Right click on the file and select properties.
This will bring up a dialog box that has many options.
The one we are concerned with is "Run as administrator" put a check mark in this box and close the dialog box.

The game is now set to run in administrator mode NO matter WHAT the user level is that executes it.

Hope this helps,

Changing administrator password so every one can use the computer

the reason for an admin password is so not everyone can down load, or change program files important to the computer running correctly. you can set up different user accounts with varying degrees of access, each with their own password if you wish. from the start menue, go to contol panel/ user accounts

I forgot my adminastor password

Elevate a secondary account outside of the admin account to admin status, then login as it and change your admin password. If you don't have a secondary user account, you can create one (and elevate it to admin status) by running the following from the command line:

net user "useraccount" "password" /add
net localgroup administrators "your pc's name"\"useraccount" /add

Of course, remove the quotations and insert the user account name, your pc's name, and the password where those words show up. That should allow you to get into Windows with admin privelages and change the administrator password. I do it through the "manage" function by right clicking on My Computer. Then go to Local Users and Groups, fo to the users folder, right click on your administrator account and hit "Set password". Hope this helps!

Hi Joe,

In light of the age of this post, if there has been no change in the situation, special peripheral devices may be necessary to end the frustration of all parties.

May I suggest the Sidewinder Pro 4 axis Joystick with embedded vibrating feedback used in conjunction with the Thrustmaster WCS throttle control.

You'll find the joystick to be super responsive no matter what games you are playing. And when it's time to go Full Throttle, well...., nothing beats a ThrustMaster.

Hope you find this advice to be very helpful in achieving that happy ending.

I have been give a computer (which is will not be hooked up to the internet). I have it in the basement for the grandkids to play their games on. However, the computer is loaded with XP and will not...

Whether you can do this easily will depend upon whether anyone has set a password for the in-built "administrator" account. Try this:

Reboot the machine and tap the f8 key as it starts up until you are offered the option of restarting in Safe Mode. Do not be alarmed that the screen will be low resolution and only 256 colours - thats in case you are starting in safe mode because you've messed up your display settings!

At the welcome screen you should see and "Administrator" account which was not there when you started in normal mode. Click on that. If whoever had the PC before hadn't set an Admin password then you will enter safe mode with admin rights.

Now use the Users Control under the Control panel to amend the user names, rights and passwords as you see fit.

Exit out of safe mode with "restart" as usual, and you should now boot in normal mode with the new accounts you have set up, which can have admin rights themselves if you wish.

Hope that works!

If not, I'm afraid it is a difficult task and requires a dedicated boot-disk and utility, which you may be able to net-search for.

Good Luck!
