If you have a problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic.
This will help to avoid the confusion, of trying to help two or more people, in the same thread, with different problems.
Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be totally different due to different hardware, software, system requirements, etc....
This is also known as hijacking a thread, which is not considered to be proper forum etiquette.

well i can help both of you thankfully.
you need to turn off ulc for that account.
go into control panel and switch the view to clasic
find the user edit gui
look in there you will find a check box you need to uncheck to turn of this feature(be sure to turn it back on after you are done)
also if you do not want to do above i would suggest you r-click on icon of program
go to compadiability tab and fill the checkbox next to run as an administrator.
