1. Do you need support for Assetto Corsa Competizione? Please use the proper forum below and ALWAYS zip and attach the WHOLE "Logs" folder in your c:\users\*youruser*\AppData\Local\AC2\Saved. The "AppData" folder is hidden by default, check "Hidden items" in your Windows view properties. If you report a crash, ALWAYS zip and attach the WHOLE "Crashes" folder in the same directory.
  2. FOR ASSETTO CORSA COMPETIZIONE: If you report issues with saved games, please always zip and attach your entire User/Documents/Assetto Corsa Competizione/Savegame folder!
  3. If your game executable is missing, please add your entire Steam directory to the exceptions in your antivirus software, then run a Steam integrity check or reinstall the game altogether.

Run ACC / Steam as an administrator?

    Hi all,

    Been wondering about a year now that why I must run Steam as an Admin in order to start ACC.

    It wasn’t like that in the beginning, but been like that since 0.4 or something. Besides ACC only AC and Dirt Rally are only titles in my library and those can be run ”normally”...

    Google didn’t help. Is there any up- or downsides doing so ? Is it same for everyone or just me? :oops:

    Thx in advance for any comments...

    No issues here. I have separate admin and user accounts on my gaming PC. ACC runs just fine on my user account as do all l my other games.

    For me,
    ACC runs without Steam (Steam offline).

    Ok, cool. So looks like it’s not that common then. I have only one account on my ’racing’ -computer, because nobody else don’t use it and it is not used to anything else.

    Odd feature it is and only ACC... o_O

    Actually when it didn’t run ’normal’ in the first place, i read from RD forums that one should run Steam as an administrator and it worked for me too...

    Oh dear... it was dead simple actually when I did some digging... :rolleyes: :oops:

    For some odd reason, AC2-Win64-Shipping.exe, under Properties and under window "Compatibility" had "Run as administrator" box checked. Unchecked it and works like all the other titles.
