iWin & Windows Vista:
I. Games in
All games developed by iWin function normally on Windows Vista, however for older games sold by iWin but created by other developers, you will need to refer to the developer’s website for detailed support with Windows Vista. If you run into problems with your game not running correctly under
II. Uninstalling Games
If you uninstall the iWin Games Manager in Windows Vista, it will convert your desktop shortcuts to HTML links to our website. If you wish to reinstall the iWin Games Manager, you can use these links in the future to re-download the Manager, or you may delete them if you wish.
III. Administrator and Non-Administrator Accounts
The iWin Games Manager is designed to run under both administrator and non-administrator (limited) accounts on Windows Vista. The major difference between the two is you will not have to enter the administrator password to launch the Manager. You will still be prompted to allow (refer to the Windows Vista Help system for information on security options) the Manager to run.
On non-administrator (limited) accounts you will be prompted for the administrator password EACH time you launch the iWin Games Manager. You will also be prompted if you wish to uninstall the iWin Games Manager, or attempt to uninstall a game outside of the Manager (e.g. the Start Menu or Add/Remove Programs).
IV. Parental Controls
Windows Vista has added the ability to control the non-administrator accounts in terms of access to specific time periods, specific programs, websites, etc. Currently you will need the administrator password each time you launch the iWin Games Manager. Because of this, if you wish to prevent access to the iWin Games Manager via Parental Controls you will need to lock out “All Programs”. You can access Parental Controls via “Control Panel” then under “User Accounts and Family Safety” click “Setup parental controls for any user”. If you enable blocking of all programs, please be aware that launching the Manager on a non-administrator account will prompt you to allow access and doing so will permanently add the program to the allowed list. You must manually remove it from the list to disable access again.
