Error Message!!! HELP, PLEASE???
Title of Game: SIMS the Complete Collection
Error: "Please login with administrator privileges and try again"
Operating System: XP Home
Here's the situation:
I am the administrator of PC and so is MY account [checked it already several times!]
Yes, I've Un-installed and Re-installed the game several times already.
I even went to Best Buy, where I purchased the game, and exchanged the game for replacement game [same title].
I also Un-installed and Re-installed the replacement game.
I have also created a new user and gave administrator privilege to that user also.
No matter what I've done, i still doesn't work!
Any NEW suggestions?
Who else has this issue?
Best Buy where I bought the game says it's MY pc, NOT the PROGRAMMING!
Told them that OTHERS have this same issue [did my research online prior to telling them that], and they will NOT exchange the game for something else, because it was opened!
How else do you find out IT WON'T WORK???

Yes...I can help u out with that...
The bad news for ur problem is that it can be fixed by just formatting ur PC n then installing the game after that.
The good news however is that there is an easier way. Sorry if u felt angry on reading that bad news. Just a small habit of mine.
The way to get the game workin is simple. Create another account with administrator privileges. Log into that account. N then try installing the game...It shud work just fine.
I can possibly second guess the reason why this is happening. U may have changed ur LogIn name after the time that u installed the OS for the first time. Ya, I know this is not supposed to cause any problems, but unfortunately fo some ppl, it does create problems. Creating another user usually solves this problem. I have actually fixed it at a friend's place...so givin u the same opinion.
If this however does not solve ur problem, I am really sorry to say, a format n reinstall is the only option, tho' naturally, I would only forget the game if it gets to that (yeah, the money goes waste....it's on you bro)
If u still want ne clarification, feel free to IM me on my Yahoo ID
