Question about Microsoft Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings for Windows

1 Answer

I can not play AoE2 on my personal profile.

I can not play AoE2 on my personal (Limited) profile. I installed it on the administrator profile, and it plays fine on that profile, but when I try to run it on mine the whole "...has encountered a problem and needs to close" thing pops up. I'm on Windows XP, any solutions?

Hello,

At some point during the installation or after it would have asked if only you
(administrator) can play it or anyone.. You should select everyone.

Post back if you have any more questions or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

    To slove this problem just go to your control panel and under the users account section try to find something called UAC , that option let all users as admins , and you can make all the changes you want.

Won't login


when your netbook starts up, press f8 and from the following menu, choose to start using safe mode with gui. If you have specified an administrative password at the time of windows installation, use that to log on. If you have not, you should be able to simply log on with the administrative account. Now, go to the control panel>user accounts and create a new user account. Now, you should be able to logon using the new user account. Make this one an administrative/standard account instead of a limited one. When you logon using this account, you should be able to get your data of the previous account from C:\Users\<previous profile name>... You can take backup of this data and then delete the previous user profile to avoid further confusion.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba satellite c660-2el administrator cannot log on, user profile service failed to log on, user profile cannot be loaded


Your profile is probably corrupted. You will need to log in another account that has administrative permissions and rename the "administrator" profile to "administrator.old". After doing that, try logging in again to the administrator profile and copying all the data from the old profile to the new one that was created. If you still get the same error or if there are no other users that have administrative privileges, you will need to do a repair installation (Windows XP) to fix this. If you are using Windows Vista or higher, you will have to install over your existing installation to preserve your data, or do a clean install (format) and start new. This is actually a common problem, so don't blame yourself.

Hi,

1.To overcome this problem, you have to login into administrator account and then try installing the driver.
2. The present user account from which you are trying to install the driver may not have administrative privilege and may be of limited rights account. so only you are getting some problem like this.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks

Anti spy on yahoo says i need administrative rights to work?


If you are using XP or later and you have established user accounts on your computer, or someone who actually controls your computer has created user accounts, there is a good possibility you do not belong to the "Administrative User group". If this is your computer, you will need to log in as an administrative user with the proper password, if you assigned one. If the computer is actually controlled by another person, you will have to get that other person (mom, dad, sister, brother, son, daughter, boss, neighbor, dude down the street, other person) to change you from "limited" to "administrative" user.

It is not my intention to be negative when I make reference to the person who controls your computer. If you cannot get in as administrator, evidently you forgot the process or someone else doesn't want you to be installing programs on the (their) computer.

These changes can be made by going to the control panel and opening USER ACCOUNTS (in XP). If you do have administrative rights, you can make the changes, if you don't, well then, Windows will not allow it.

I hope this information helps you

Conflicting User profiles when using Internet Explorer in WinXP


This is because the other user must have been the administrator. Administrative user can control the settings of other user. He must give permission to the other user which is given by default. But if its not, then options will be very limited to the other user. Access to surf the net and other access options can be given through the administrator.

Good luck!

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.

I can't get the world poker championship to install on my computer I have windows xp and I don't understand the part about administrator rights account


Im assuming your account doesn't have administrator rights and that your being asked to supply an account with Administrator credentials yes?

if so ask the person who usually installs software on your pc if they could install it for you , otherwise there is no other way unless you can get them to also create you an administrator account , then you would have no problems installing new things on the PC.

When you are logging onto your own account under Windows XP it sounds like you have been supplied with a "Limited Account" meaning you can't do things like install new software to the PC , you can't create new accounts when using a limited account so there is no way you could give your self a "Administrator Account".

The only other solution that i have for you is when you get to the logon screen press alt + ctrl + delete it shold hopefully bring up the administrator account , for the password try it blank or even try admin or administrator or password , but if there is a password on there it's probably because they dont want you to gain that sort of access.

Goodluck !

Thanks
