Unhappy Tages protection / admin issues!!!

Not 100% sure if this is the right place, but, it is dealing with a game, so... here it goes.

It's nothing big like wow, or rift... It's just one of those simple mystery type games. I have it d'loaded just fine... however...

I got a message that popped up:

This driver is blocked due to compatibility issues.
Tells me to check online for solutions. Says that a driver is installed that causes stability problems with your system. This driver will be disabled. Please contact the driver manufactuer for an update that is compatible with this version of windows.

Driver: Tages protection
Publisher: Tages SA
Location: N/A

Then I get another message when I try to actually play the game..

Insufficient privileges: You must be administrator when you run this application for the first time.

Now, I am the admin, everything is set up as admin.. I even set the settings in the games properties to allow everything for admin. I am the only one that uses this comp, There is another account on it for when it was made, but both accounts are set up as admins. Everything has all the right permissions.

I have played this game b4... I have had the admin issue b4.. however, I can't remember how I got passed it.

This tages protection thing is new to me however. Don't remember seeing that before... And I have never seen it before with any other games, or anything for that matter, that I have d'loaded.

I know this doesn't seem like a huge issue... it's just annoying that I can't play a simple little game!!!

I kind of looked up what tages protection was, it was claimed that it can be removed.. but I don't know much about it to make that kind of choice..

How do I get around these issues and perhaps have it solved for the next time I d'load /play this particular game?

Any advice is much appreciated.

even though, like me, you are the only user and are an admin, did you try right clicking the game and choosing--run as admin? sometimes that happens to me too. (albeit not the other messages) its worth a try if you havent tried it.

and as an aside, have you updated your video drivers recently?

From what ive seen it looks as though this Tages is DRM of some kind, so im not suprised that its giving you a hassle. Tages isnt a driver per se, but on their website it does have a driver you could try and download to see if that works.

I dont like posting sites willy nilly, but if you google Tages protection it comes up first, then go to the driver page on the site and thats where i found it.

you may have to see if there's a way to re-download the game.

Ive never run into this exact problem though, so before going that road(especially if you only have a limited number of downloads) id wait to see if anyone else has a better option.

Edit--ive also found several posts on other sites about this being a win 7 64 bit problem.

The Tages that comes with older games doesn't run on a 64-bit environment. The Witcher used to have this problem a lot before they patched it ot te Enhanced Edition. Try installing the 64-bit version from here, and then try running your game again. If that doesn't work, you may need to set the main Tages exe to run As Administrator. You do that on the Compatibility tag in the File Properties.

And if that was all Greek and you need more details, just let me know, and I'll post them as soon as I'm done with dinner.
