    Default User Account

    I have been running a Flight Simulator program for over 12 months and recently I started to get the message "Flight Simulator cannot run from a restricted user account and will now quit. Please log on using an administrator account and restart Flight Simulator". All other programs run ok and it is just this one that is causing me this trouble. I am not familiar with these accounts.
    Could a Microsoft update have caused this trouble in this one program?.
    Any help appreciated.

    Default Re: User Account

    If you right click on the icon, go to properties then shortcut and then click on advanced. This will let you choose different credentials to use to run that program so choose another user perhaps. Just a stopgap measure though.

    Is your account set to "Computer Administrator"

    To check go into the control Panel / user accounts locate your account and It will say what it is.

    Yes but it has alway been set that way without problems.
