i have been trying to get an old game (Freelancer) to work on my windows 8.1 laptop.
When I try to start it I get the "allow to make changes" dialog but then nothing happens.
The Freelancer folder (in Program files (x86)/Windows Games) shows as Read Only which I can reset but just shows up again the next time I look.
I have changed the User permissions and owner and also tried running the "attrib -r" command from an administrator command prompt.
Does anyone have any ideas?
