    Some games don't allow 'run as administrator'?


    One of my wife's games won't run so I told her to right-click & choose 'run as administrator'. That's my 'go-to' diagnostic tool to see whether the game actually won't run or if it's a permissions thing.

    Surprise! 'Run as administrator' isn't an option for this game. Instead it has 'run with graphics processor' option. I checked the Advanced properties & 'run as administrator' is disabled there, too. I've heard of programs that you *shouldn't* run as administrator but this is the first time I've heard of one that you *can't* run as administrator.

    Can anybody explain this? Thanks.

    :)

  2. temple run and some games

    hi mate,

    you don't know that for sure, as for example, Asphalt 7 recently came with an update that allowed it to play on devices with only 512MB RAM which are the 520, 620 and 720. it is up to the developer, and with the recent spade of gaming titles that have come
    to Windows Phone, i would expect to see more games coming sooner rather than later, for not only 1GB handsets but 512MB ones too.

    This is not going to happen. It took ages for the developers to produce an OLD version of Temple Run for WP8. They are not going to produce a special version to run on 620, 520. I'm afraid it will be the same with all other HD games.
