: It is first time i post, so if it is not the right place please move it.
I have CD of Medieval Total WaR II from back in the days. The game was installed on a Windows 7 computer and was working properly (Kingdoms extension too by the way). I did not use them for a very long time (several years).
Today, i tried to start the game and got a message saying that i should be admin of my computer. Problem is that i am admin ! So i uninstalled the whole thing, tried to clean as much as possible and install again : same message. I created another admin account on my computer and tried start the game from there but it does not work. I did not try to install the game from that new account, should i ?
Actually now i don't have that message any more but when i try to start the game just nothing happen (actually process is running but nothing happens). Any idea about the problem and how i could solve it ?
EDIT : i read somewhere on internet that i should use Steam so i installed it and add the game there but the CD key is not recognized as a steam product (too much old i presume) so basically when i launch it via Steam it is the same (it is just a shortcut that don't give me admin access i presume).
