Hey I got a new computer, a Asus, with windows 8. I came here to download the game again, and got a thing which says i do not have admin rights to download the game files. Note: I am the only user so I am the admin. If any of you guys can help me figure out how to install the game on here it will help. Please PM me with the info i need to know.

Not good to PM, since then others can't find this in the future:

1. Windows does NOT give all programs admin rights for safety reasons! This means that your browser will need EXTRA permission to run as administrator.
Right-click your browser icon, choose "Run as administrator".
Now press play now. It should now install.

2. If 1. does not work, it might be an incompatibility of the game updater with Win8.
To solve that, you can try to run your browser under Win7 compatibility mode:
Right-click your browser icon, choose "properties" , choose the "Compatibility" tab, choose "Win7 compatibility".
Now try again.

Maybe you have to select BOTH 1. and 2. in the properties.

Thanks... I was about to give up from the frustration of staring at my screen seeing that I don't have admin rights, even though im the freaking admin and the only account

Whenever I did that, it worked until a random file each time (I tried downloading multiple times) & it said "Failed to download patch file" & the download terminates. I'm on Windows 8 & please help because this is my favorite game.

Guys, use Google Chrome, it'll be much easier this way. Incase you have installed it before then you need to delete EVERYTHING that's related to BFP4F. Including any plug-ins you might have installed. Then run it as admin.

Ive just reinstalled p4f on my win 8, so for anyone having difficulties with this + cant find where to run as admin,
  • Right click icon (IE, Chrome etc) in bar along bottom of screen
  • Hover mouse over text to the program title (e.g. where it says "Internet Explorer" or "Google Chrome") -You will find it in the bottom row
  • Right click on it
  • Left-click "Run as Administrator"
  • Log onto BFP4F as normal, and install the game

This should work, and hopefully I have been clear enough... (Should post this as a tutorial hahaha)
