Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships
start.exe file: access denied
When I try to install the game it gets through all of it except for the Start.exe file, it tells me it can't find the source file and that access is denied, any ideas of what is wrong or what i'm doing wrong lol
Did you try installing the game through the downloader? Thats the only was i know that games will install , you have to run the downloader first.
It runs the downloader, and I run it from my desktop not the browser, but it still won't install the start.exe file.
Another thing I noticed was that it doesn't ask for my verification code that gamersgate supplies me, could that have something to do with it maybe?
I have this game but haven't installed it yet. If we can;t figure out your issue I'll d/l and install it to see if you're problem can be reproduced. Is the game installing into the programm files dir? If so uninstall and try installing it into something line C:\Games.
You can only install and run this as administrator if you are using vista or 7 without that the game will fail.
Installed, activated it and ran it from program files with no issue on Windows 7 64. Checked the security on start.exe. You need to be in the administrators or users group to run this.
I'm just bewildered, I'm admin of the computer. But when I open the users file in the C:\ my porfile name isn't in there, uuuuugggggghhhhhh this is frustrating. I'm going to try and download on another computer, maybe it's just my comp
I think i may have figured it out, when I installed it on another computer the same thing happened, long story short, it was Sophos blocking the start.exe file, once i authorized it worked. now to do it on my comp lol
Yup Sure enough it was my Sophos anti-virus lol, Thanks for all the help, sorry it get any use because I'm a dooof lol
