Windows 7: Can't play a game over the net when UAC is enabled.

Can't play a game over the net when UAC is enabled.

Ok, I'm lost indeed
I Have a game to play online which I run using a script (*.bat).
sometimes I host a game and sometimes I don't...
(by the way, I hope this isn't illegal wright? )

now I've been setting up everything in windows firewall, inbount and outbound rules for that program and all that security stuff.
now here are two scenarios where, one works and another unfotunately does not:

First scenario:
-I log in as admin into windows
-windows has UAC disabled
-I run a script
-I play the game online

Second scenario :
-I log in as admin into windows
-windows has UAC enabled
-I run a script as Administrator
-I can't play a game online cos it can't find any server

as you see in these two scenario only UAC on/off is difference.
How do I fix that issuse by keeping UAC enabled?
Can you give me some

Kind regards!

Hello,

Does it happen if your UAC is on the lowest level?

Hi Dave,
No, if UAC is on the lowest level then it works just fine, that is, UAC is disabled on lowest level.
On any other level (UAC enabled) it won't work cos I'll have to run script as Administrator, but no matter, runing a script as Admin or not that doesn't change anything.

You know, I don't wanna disable UAC and thus restart my comp each time to be able plaing a game.

Any idea so I can try it, thanks
