console; no alert came up.

Actually I don't see why UAC should chime in when launching MafiaCon. The launcher does not contain a manifest telling Windows to do so and the filename (MafiaCon.exe) should not trigger the setup/installer filename heuristic either. Thinking

Anyway, sent you a PM.

Even I was surprised but yeah when I had left UAC as was
starting MafiaCon.exe brought up the UAC pop-up with the dimmed
desktop - but having administrator rights I pulled down the level
to don't ask.

Anyway 's all good thanks Smile

Impossible Oh my dayz

Windows 10 is really bugging me Evil

I run the compatibility troubleshooter
for MafiaCon and set it for Windows XP
and SP 3 test it and it runs... choose
save these settings and Windows also
fixes the incompatibility - Game runs
and everything works.

Then I exit and come back to play
via MafiaCon even running as
Administrator and then THIS happens
Unable to create device.

Oops!

Actually compatibility mode should not be necessary for running the MafiaCon launcher.

Is that the full message you're getting? If so, you're probably running an old version of MafiaCon. Try the version I PMed you some weeks ago.
