    "You don't have Sufficient Access Privileges to Run the game"

    I keep on receiving this error message, no matter how i try to start the game.

    I'm running an athlon II x3 with a GTX 650ti, 4GB Ram and Windows 7 64-bit.

    I have tried everything i knew to resolve this.

    • I have reinstalled the game (same folder and new folder)
    • I have reinstalled UPlay (twice)
    • I have done every single combination of "Run as admin" and "Compatibility mode"
    • In a desperate attempt, i even downloaded files so i could run it without UPlay and it still gave the same error message
    • I have updated my Graphics Drivers
    • I have updated my Windows 7
    • I have completely Turned off UAC in every form

    and in one final act of "This absolutely HAS to work"
    • I Reinstalled Windows from scratch

    All to absolutely No avail.

    Anyone have any advice with this?

    I have the very same problem. With the version i bought on steam as well as the one installed from a retail DVD-ROM.

    I never had this Problem with any other game before. I've tried pretty much the same things as are mentioned above except reinstalling WIN7.

    System Specs:

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Intel i7 980 @ 3.33GHz (12 CPUs), GeForce GTX 580, 12GB RAM

    I got it as well. I use an administrator account, tried every form of UAC, running as admin, taking ownership of files, editing user security properties of files, etc.
    Even tried accessing and launching the game through the OS's hidden administrator account, but still no luck.
    Tried installing it on different drives and HDDs.

    There's absolutely nothing about this on the internet aside from "try running as administrator", "make sure you are an administrator" and "try changing UAC".

    Windows 7 64bit, i5 2500k, 2x Ati HD 5770, 4GB RAM.

    Well, I fixed the problem. It's quite an extreme solution though.

    My computer was absolutely bricked after messing with security settings and everything, so I reformatted my drives and installed a different copy of Windows 7 (64b). Far Cry 3 works now.

    Still no help with this?

    I really don't like the idea of having £40 worth of data in my computer that i still can't play.

    I've done what Ubi-Mush asked and sent a ticket for this error.

    I just got the deluxe edition as a gift via steam, installed the whole deal and was anxious to play.

    Steam isn't installed in "C:/Program Files" so there shouldn't be problems with my Win7 x64 administrator privileges.

    What is going on? Why must we wait 2 weeks until you guys patch this error?

    Pls respond to our tickets, this is a crappy error that shouldn't happen at all.
