hmm actually I was just thinking...Windows DOES have an equivalent to the UNIX su command...you can normally tell it to run a given program as another user. Maybe I will try it that way...install it as administrator and then run it as admin while logged in as limited user. hmm.
ah! I answered my own question...I went into Properties for the game executable, then Compatibility, and told it to run that program in Windows 98 compatibility!!! works great now everybody remember that answer in case somebody else asks
