USER ACCOUNT CONTROL (UAC)



This is for Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 OS users who have troubles patching. This is because windows has USER ACCOUNT CONTROL which prohibits changing/modifying of files within the "Program Files" directory thus alteration of your MyRO files through patching is being blocked. To turn this off, please refer to the specific guide below for Vista or Win7/8.




Disable UAC on Windows Vista



Open up Control Panel, and type in “UAC” into the search box. You’ll see a link for “Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off”:

On the next screen you should uncheck the box for “Use User Account Control (UAC)”, and then click on the OK button.

You’ll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect, but you should be all done with annoying prompts.




Disable UAC on Windows 7/8



Windows 7 makes it much easier to deal with UAC settings, and in fact you don’t have to completely disable UAC if you don’t want to. Just type UAC into the start menu or Control Panel search box.

You can simply drag the slider up or down, depending on how often you want to be alerted.

If you drag it all the way down to the bottom, you’ll have disabled it entirely.
