Cannot Run Client After Patching

“Why can’t I run Talon Tales even after patching everything up? I just patched and now I can’t start Talon Tales.”

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, both have a feature called UAC, User Account Control. The UAC forces users that are part of the local administrators group to run like they were regular users with no administrative privileges. Meaning you can’t do administrator things while UAC is on if you’re part of this group. Don’t worry – disabling UAC won’t have any real security risks and you can always enable it again afterwards.

Here’s how to disable UAC: Type in MSCONFIG — you should be prompted with a new screen. From there go to Tools, then scroll all the way down and find an entry called “Disable UAC/UAP” Some machines say UAP (don’t ask why). After it’s done click OK to close the window. Reboot your computer. You should have UAC disabled now and will be able to patch properly.

To enable UAC again do the same as above, except when prompted to choosing “Disable UAC” select “Enable UAC”.
