Good morning/day or evening respected members & staff members of the MyDigitalLife Forums Community! I know that I'm fairly new on MDL, so please help me, instead of flaming me or offending me. I will try to do my best to keep up with the rules of this nice community forums . I would like to ask you to accept my English, even when it's really awful. I'm not a native English speaker and my English never will be as good as the English of a native English speaker. I've opened this thread under the subject Windows 8 because I have a problem, or let's better say a "really nasty issue" with permissions/rights in Windows 8. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who noticed this nasty issue in Windows 8. I would like to give an or a few example(s) so you can better understand what I mean. Btw, I'm using Windows 8 Enterprise Standard Build 9200 German x64. I've activated it with a MAK key via a KMS server ending with the domain "*mooo.com". I would like to let you know that I'm not using a Microsoft account to login into Windows 8. I've made a good old local Windows account which is set to Administrator. Example(s): I have installed the game "Risen 2 - Dark Waters" on my computer after reinstalling to Windows 8 and throwing all I need on it. The installation worked properly and I never got an error or something (installation was run normally, no "Launch as Administrator" or compatibility mode changes) . So far so good. I started the game and it works properly unless I want to save it. When I save, the save file is not being written and therefor no saving process is done. When I launch the game with "Launch as Administrator" ticked, it creates the save file and the saving works properly. So when I launch the game with my local administrator account "Serial" the game isn't able to write saves to the disk! I have to launch it with "Launch as Administrator" the whole time. Another example. I have downloaded a few modified files for another game called "Dishonored" that was released today (a language pack actually). I have extracted the files of the language pack to my desktop. When I move them to the game folder I get a message that I need administrator rights/premission to do it. I can click on proceed and it will move and overwrite the files with Administrator rights. This happens the whole time I want to move something or change something on "C:\". There is a second problem. I wanted to edit a .ini file (configurations of the game) with a text editor. I could open it but I couldn't change anything (it was set to "read only", that's easy to fix). But now after I fixed that and changed what I needed, I can't save it because I get the error "Access denied". Even renaming a file or the hard drive requires administrator rights. However there is always the procced button that applies the rename process with administrator rights. So actually my local administrator account isn't a administrator as I can't even rename a file in "C:\"? Image of the error in German: i<dot>imgur<dot>com/CjRcS.png I've checked my premissions (Serial/Administrator in accounts) for the drive C:\ and the option changed was not ticked. I changed it to give me full rights. Got a message from Windows that it might be not good to give full rights and bla bla bla. I procceded and got errors that the premission/right change couldn't be applied to all folders and files (even hidden files) in "C:\". So my permissions for "C:\" are still the same although "full rights" is ticked. What the heck is wrong with Windows 8? Anyone got a solution for this issue?
