Updating Halo combat evolved?

Hi, I am trying to update Halo: combat evolved, but whenever it trys to update it will download the update then execute it then it wil ask for admin rights. Well I have admin rights and I even tell it to run with admin rights. I also have UAC disabled, and yet I cannot update the game. Has anyone else out there been able to succesfully update?

Sorry to here that, because I was able to update just fine. I have UAC turned off and my account is the only user on the system.

After running the autorun again (from the CD), it doesn't detect that it's installed. I'll try reinstalling the game.

FIXED! Had to completely uninstall the game. I guess I had it installed previously (on this install of Windows), but I removed the game (in %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Games\Halo) without properly using the installer. Installing the game, uninstalling it completely, then reinstalling it fixed it .

An easier solution is here:

Halo Combat Evolved Update failure

You need to go into program files, then run haloupdate.exe as administrator, and it will update successfully.
