JSI Tip 6206. DirectPlay games do NOT start?

When you try to start a game, it does NOT start.

This condition will occurs if the DirectPlay game uses DirectX 7 technology and your user account is NOT a member of the Administrators group on the local computer.

To resolve this problem, do either or both of the following:

1. Download the released version of DirectX and install it.

2. Add your account to the local Administrators group:

      A. Log on as the local Administrator.

      B. Open a CMD prompt.

      C. Type net localgroup Administrators <YourAccount> /Add

      where <YourAccount> is either your domain account using the DomainName\UserName syntax or
      UserName if your computer is not a domain member.

      D. Log on as <YourAccount>.
