This is a common problem on Windows Vista. If you got the game installed and there's a shortcut on your desktop, just right click the icon of it on your desktop and click "Run as Administrator", then it will ask you to confirm, with or without password, and it will start with admin rights.

That's how simple it is. ^^

*run the game with with administrator account or with administrator rights
*run the game exe with Windows XP compatibility mode (if you are running Vista/Win7)
*There are a lot of reports that this game will not like more than 3GB of RAM

Hi,
Although the game wasn't designed to run on Vista, it still can! Here are some instructions to help you. This might help very well.

1. Install LEGO Star Wars.

2. When it's installed, right click on the LEGO Star Wars icon.

3. Click Properties.

4. Click the Compatibility tab.

5. Tick the box saying Run this program in compatibility mode for...

6. Click the drop-down menu under the sentence and click Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

7. Click Apply then OK.

8. Right click on the LEGO Star Wars icon again and click Run as an administrator.

NOTE: If you are using a Standard User Account, then you will need an administrator's password to play. After the password has been put in, the game should start after a few seconds.

Hope this Helped!

First check that you are running games in Administrator mode, or you always get similar problem.
If you run games as administrator and it still happens, then you need to reinstall direct x.
Download and install as administrator.
