    the thing is i can't play terraria without admins password and he is currently out of town and soesnt want me to know his password. I use windows 7 and i am a standard user.
    I also have a friend who has all these same things but he just clicks no and the program runs.

    What do i do?

    You need administrative rights in order to play without having to enter the password.
  6. warhole1 Slimed Zombie

    yes i know that, i am looking for a way to by-pass the administrative rights. For example if i changd what kind of user i am.
  7. Dreacus Green Slime

    Don't bother, you will need someone with administrative rights to do that for you.

    yes but trickery is my favourite thing.

    If becoming a power user would let me install terraria than i could trick the admin by asying it would be a lot simpler.

    I canèt just ask for the password sying its something else because the game clearlysays Terreria by Steam

    You have UAC on. You can't bypass UAC unless you have the password.

    Edit: From what I got it must be UAC.
  10. warhole1 Slimed Zombie

    What exactly is UAC?
  11. Dreacus Green Slime

    ... Or you just be honoust about it, say that you can't play the game you bought(I hope). No need for trickery, that will only result in a lower chance of succeeding.

    im not supposed to be playnig games for another month. i bought the game on steam hoping it would be lik killing floor where you dont need the damins password to play.

    Does a message come up in your screen saying you have to log in as an administrator when you try to install something?
    Edit: If your friend is the administrator tell him to use remote desktop to fix it.

    first of all dont know what remote desktop is. and it only says i need the password i dont need to be loggde on his account

    Every program will need a password to be run, except some Microsoft related ones.
    Just wait the month off.

    UAC is a program that gives you a message each time a program is trying to do something on your computer. So that no virus can run in the background without you knowing about it. And remote desktop is a program that can be used to go onto your computer while on another. So that he can type in the password himself while away.

    Just tell him to use remote desktop.

    he didnt bring hid computer

    not most steam games they dont need a password and neither did steam itself.
  18. Dreacus Green Slime

    Poring, he can not. He is not allowed to play games for another month, and he is trying to play in 'secret'.
  19. Poring Cursed Skull

    Oh. Well, you can't bypass the UAC. The only thing I can imagine is that if you install the game on someone else's computer, copy that directory and put it in yours. But I don't know how terraria works so that prolly won't work either.

    Edit: Also, you can set UAC to requiring a administrator password or just to pressing yes or no.
    Your administrator think you're bad with computers if he restricts you that much.

    Nope, Steam account bound and would ztill require a password to run.
