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:
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>.
