I've read elsewhere that this error doesn't necessarily mean i dont have sufficient rights, only that the software has fallen over somewhere to an unknown error which it missinterprets as a rights issue.
Has anyone had any success running Anno 1404 through steam?
This is because of the TAGES copy protection failing to run in Crossover Games. The standalone disc version of this game received an update that removed the copy protection, but the Steam version of this game still includes it and tries to install it on first run.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
