Cannot Launch Game without Opening the launcher with administrator permission

Forum rules
BEFORE YOU POST...

Remember that all mods available here REQUIRE Spore: Galactic Adventures AND patch 5.1. Patch 6\Bot Parts does NOT include Patch 5.1! (Some may work on other setups, but this is recommended)

Can't get a mod to work? Feel free to ask for help, there's always someone around to help out. Just make sure to include the following information:
a) Did you install Spore from Steam, Origin, or a Disk?
b) Is your game patched to the latest version?
c) Do you have Galactic Adventures?
d) If so, is it also patched to the latest version?
e) Where did you install the mod to?
f) What is the file's current name in the folder you installed it to?
This information is needed for us to help you!

Cannot Launch Game without Opening the launcher with administrator permission

Unread postby THEWEATLEY » Fri Jul 26, 2019 12:37 pm

So, i dowloaded DI yesterday (along a bunch of other mods) and now i can´t open the game Via the Launcher without using administrative permissions, and when i try to do so without using the permission, well, the game launches and an error screen appears and it says
" ErrorCode:-2147467259 "
NativeErrorCode: 5
HResult: -2147467259
If its helpful i can list all the mods that i have downloaded, or straight up post the folder or a screenshot of it , if any one can help, please do !

Simple: Don't use Steam Spore.

I'd recommend you transfer your keys to Origin. Make sure to backup your creations and save data and uninstall Steam Spore before you install Origin Spore. If you need a hand with any of that, just let me know.

Ohhh ok so transferring the keys to origin and playing the game there should solve the problem, well i have origin installed. it's just that i had never heard about key transferring, and well backing up my creations and data seems easy enough to do on my own, though where exactly are these files located?, (i mean to create the backup and start using the origin version instead of steam's )

Nononono, I specifically said you must uninstall the Steam version before installing the Origin version.
