Default Using Windows 7 / Vista? Having Troubles? ~READ~

I will try to be BRIEF and still descriptive enough to allow any user to step by step, get things working.

Every version of vista comes with UAC, this is a critical feature of vista that i recommend NOT BE DISABLED.

However Lineage2 requires full admin access at the moment, hopefully in coming versions, they'll be able to fix this issue as no program should require full admin rights.

FROM THE START~> Installing lineage2 for the first time on vista.

Depending on the Source, if you are using a CD/DVD to install, you MUST close the autopopup dialog box after inserting the media.

Open START~>My Computer
A window should popup with the drives/folders
Right click on the CD/DVD Drive that contains the CD/DVD of lineage2, a menu should open and SELECT OPEN.
Within this window should be a file named SETUP
Right Click SETUP and within the menu, select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
A dialog box should come asking if you are sure you want to run this program, SAY ALLOW, from here you should have ZERO problems installing.

If your installing from an downloaded pack, extract the package and do the similar method mentioned above, go into the package and right click the SETUP in there, select run as ADMINISTRATOR. Install away.

AFTER INSTALLATION~> Running the game.

In order to be able to run the game, you must also grant access to the game. Usually a Desktop Icon of LINEAGEII will be created, we'll use this as an example.

RIGHT click on the LINEAGEII icon on the desktop, select Properties.
A window should open with several tabs, select the CAPABILITY tab.
Within this tab, there are several options, ignore everything else and go down to the bottom where it says "Privilege Level", a checkbox is below with the following beside it "Run this program as administrator", Place a check in this box by clicking on the box.
Hit APPLY then OK.

Now double click the icon, a dialog box should come asking if you are sure you want to run this program, hit ALLOW.

From here on you should have ZERO problems updating the game, running the game, or being interrupted by further dialog boxes.
