Parental Control problem with games


J

Jeff Wernicke

I installed one of those cheap but good arcade games from "Alawar.com"
(Strike Ball 2 Deluxe). I am using Vista Home Premium 64 bit. I was logged
on as the administrator and when I attempted to launch the game I received
an error message about parental control has prevented this game from
starting, please change parental control settings or log in as the
administrator. I was logged in as the administrator. I checked the
parental controls for another "general" user account on my system and
parental controls are disabled for that user. I then logged in as the other
general user and then attempted to play that game and then I received the
same error message. I then installed the game on the XP 32 bit partition on
the same system and I launched it with no problem.

Anyone know what might be going on here? Is there a work around or should I
just enjoy the game within XP. Preferably I'd like to have all of my games
installed in Vista.

I just downloaded and installed another one of those games, "Bricks Of
Atlantis". This one launches just fine under Vista 64 bit. As anyone else
experienced these types of problems with parental control with at least a
small minority of games?
