    Continuing Administrator permissions Please?

    Hi everybody, me again.

    Having had various Administrator Issues with "Silent Hunter 4 Wolves of the Pacific GOLD EDITION"

    In recent Weeks I now have the Following Issues which I need help with Please.

    Hope the Rest of this Post makes sense to somebody? because it certainly doesn't make sense to me.

    Having completely UnInstalled Silent hunter and re-Installed a fresh Copy, I know find It now works perfectly when

    Loaded without making any changes to the Administrator or Compatibility settings.


    I can run a SH4 Simulation, I can save a Simulation, I can even go and play another Game and come back to SH4 and run

    A new scenario or a saved game again!

    BUT! This is only OK whilst my Computer stays on. If I switch My Computer off and go to bed and restart the Computer the next morning

    and try to start SH4 I am confronted with a Red Box with the following Message:-

    "This app has bee blocked for your protection. An administrator has blocked you from running this app"

    Really hope somebody has some Ideas about this Please? because I am really starting to get Hump with this.

    Many thanks


    Hi Paul,
    I don't know the answer to your problem, but Google gives several hits to problems running Silent Hunter, particularly using Win 10.

    One of the suggested solutions rang a very loud bell!! Make sure Silent Hunter is NOT installed in C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files (x86) or any other Windows created folder on drive C:
    Also, make sure the executable is set to 'Run this program as an administrator' using its Properties > Compatibility screen.



      Hi Ged, thanks again for reply. Hope your still well.

      I have Run SH4 for years now Installed as C:\Silent Hunter 4..

      Also the executable is set to 'Run this program as an administrator' using its Properties/Compatibility screen.

      Don.t know what to do with It now?




        Hi Paul,

        This is not a PC problem, its a sh4 problem.

        You would be better served by finding an sh4 forum.


          Can't offer help as I have SH4 on a Windows 11 gamer system and have no problems and am running it from C:\Program Files (x86) without Administrator check.

            Hi Derek, apologies for late reply.

            Will certainly give It a try.
