Windows 7: EXE Won't Open, "Please login with administrator privileges" Error

Hi!

I am new here and found this forum when i was looking for a solution to start Medal Of Honor Allied Assault that i installed again after all those years. I have all the games in the series and i think it`s the best game serie ever made. I used to play the multiplayer maps day and night and i whant to play it once again even though i know EA no longer provide multiplayer servers. I know it still can be found though. I have tried starting as an administrator, no result, and i have tried the start and stop files you have in here without nothing positive happening. When i try to start the game (and yes i own it) nothing happens at all.

I hope anyone here have a solution so i can play this game again!

Does this game require an original disk to play the game? If so the solution might be the one that works for v2 Rosetta Stone: Go to Control Panel, then System and Security, then Windows Update. On the sidebar click change settings, then choose "check for updates but allow me to choose whether to download and install them." Once that's done, go to installed updates. Search for KB3086255 and uninstall it. That is the only update that I have had trouble with, and removing it has had no noticeable negative effect on my computers. Because of changing the windows settings you will have to periodically update windows yourself (it won't do it automatically anymore), but that is the only way to keep your computer from reinstalling the update I mentioned without your permission. Hope that helps!
