Post subject:  Windows 10 Update, Game Errors

After Windows 10 performed a wonderful update on the machine that I use to hose TWGS on, essentially broke the game from running.

When attempting to run the TWGS application, I receive the following error:

"Unable to create configuration in system registry..."

I thought, maybe it just needs to have the registry entry replaced back in it. I made a physical copy of the game files as a backup, attempted to 'Repair' the installation, but that failed.

I ended up removing/uninstalling the game using Geek Uninstaller, which will ensure that a clean uninstall happens.

Reinstalled the game, same error.

I'd like to get the games back online, so if anyone has a suggestion I'd love to hear it!

You might try turning off User Access Control (UAC), but TWGS was never designed to run on newer operating systems.

I recommend running it on Windows 7 or Server 2008 R1.

Unfortunately an older OS is not part of the solution.

It was running fine until the Anniversary Update from Microsoft, have any other suggestions?

It might be a permissions issue. If you are running it as a service, I would recommend setting the service to run under an administrator account. If you are running it from the desktop, I recommend using the "Run as Administrator" option.
