X3 Terran Conflict issues, cant play windows 7

hi guys, i installed X3 last night to rekindle my love of space you could say, it installed fine but every time i try to actually play the game i get an pop up that is titled Tages Drivers and says something like unable to install due to not having the right administrative privelages. if i click yes i get an error code (cant remember right now) and it closes.

im the only user on my computer and i am set as the administrator, ive even tryed "run as administrator" and i still get the same error.

i believe it is version 2.0 as i have no internet connect on my computer at this time. im sure i was able to play this on windows 7 before when i first got the game but im not entirely sure that it was infact windows 7, i got both the game and windows 7 about the same time over a year and a half or so ago.


help is muchly appreciated as i want to play this game and dont want to have to run a dual boot system.

im downloading the 3.0 patch now, it seems that the tages drivers or whatever they are actually called is a copy protection that they used in the old version of X3TC and its not compatible with newer windows.

it seems i was still on xp when i first got this game cause i've never seen this issue before.

You can use the code from the game to register it with steam and DL that version for free if your disk wont run it.
