Windows 7 (32-bit)

I had the same problem as everybody else here, and I couldn't find an answer anywhere! I finally found a generic Viva Media (Crazy Machines' creator) troubleshooting manual on Google (Google is always your friend :)) and saw that it was the Tages drivers that were causing the problem. Search on Google for "Viva Media insufficient priveleges" and the first result should be a PDF with a bunch of troubleshooting info. Scroll down a couple pages and there should be a link under this game for Download the relevant driver and install it. It literally takes about 10 seconds. I did this, it said "Driver is now installed and running", I clicked on the game, and it launched perfectly! Hope this helps with everybody else.

That answer was perfect. The fix worked instantly. Now if I just hadn't wasted so much time finding an answer, I'd be several levels further . . . .
