I have windows 7, I am logged into the administrator account, I have tried "Run as Administrator" and I still get the same error message.. "you must be administrator when you run this application for the first time"... How do I fix... I assume its windows 7, what can I do to fix this, When I click "check for updates" it takes me to a webpage with an error and no available updates... please help I want to play this game
Having the same error, bought the game today and running brand new Windows7 with the enhanced edition and in an administrator profile, only to receive that message. Will install 1.5 patch and post results.
I think the witcher has problems with admin rights or something. The game works fine for me but i noticed that the witcher files are only "read-only" , so i thought id change that but it woudnt let me at all. I cant even create/add/modify anything in the folder because it says i have no admin rights when im the admin in this pc. So i think thats really odd.
