  • Hello, 

    Try to use run as an administrator option when running the file (right-click and then click on run as an administrator).

    If this does not help, contact your game vendor Technical Support.

  • Hi,

     

    Are you trying to install it use the Administrator account. Also, you may temporary disable the UAC and install it in Clean Boot.

     

    Regards,
