[.net] Game Explorer Problems

Recommended Posts

Hello, I read about Microsoft future plans for Game Explorer as the center hub for all games and decided to try it out except I am running into what probably is a simple issue. When I click Game Explorer from a Limited User Account, it flashes and disappears. When I click the Microsoft games which are tied in to it (Soiltare, Freecell, Hearts) they briefly (~10ms or so) pop up and disappear. Here's the thing though, when I access it with an Administration account, it works! Even without a UAC pop-up. I did the control panel add/remove for the games but that didn't work. Also, I'm trying to figure out more on how Game Explorer works but it seems like there's no .exe for it. I set permissions for everyone to Full too. System restore is also out of the question since I have no clue when this started happening. Of course, I'm worried about developing anything with this type of problem. I mean, if Game Explorer dies like this.............who knows what my users would think. Thanks for any help. P.S. Please forgive me if this is the wrong topic.

Since no one here knows the answer, do you have any idea where I could find the answer at or have some information on how Game Explorer works from a technical perspective? I prefer not too, but if I have too, I will dive into some code to fix this problem.
