Topic Subject: [RTW] Can´t start a game.
posted 25 October 2015 11:37 EDT (US)   
I have the Gold Edition of Rome Total War.
Last night I was going to play a game after being idle for 3-4 months.
When I click on start RTW, a square comes up telling me to login in as administrator. I have had the Gold Edition for 9 years and never had any trouble before.
I decided to uninstall and reinstall but the sme message comes up.
I am the administrator on the pc. Hope you can please help?!

I don't think that is a game-issue. It sounds more like a Windows thing.

Have you updated your operating system since RTW was installed? Like upgrading from XP to Vista, or Vista to Win 7 or above? That might be causing the issue.

Hello Imperator,
The only thing I have done is to change my pic to the south african termit tiger. On my log in I had a pic of myself 2 weeks ago. Canīt see how that would change anything.
As I said earlier, have never had any problem with the Gold edition before. It is very strange. I havenīt upgraded to W10 because I am satisfied with W8.1
Well, thanks for answering my call for help.
Take care,

Have you tried to right click your shortcut for RTW and selected "Run as Administrator"? That's really the only thing I can think of that might help.

Hello General Sajaru,
Thanks for the info. I have changed it to what you suggested.
Now MSS32.DLL is missing on the pc .
I think I saw something about that at the forum the other day.
Maybe you can help me out. RTW is by far the best game I have ever played!!
