You have to take full control of the .exe file (launcher.exe and thehunter.exe) in both the Launcher folder and the The Game folder' by right clicking on the .exe file and selecting Properties.

Once there, make sure the run as administrator tab- is checked, now go to the Compatibility box on the same page -select "run in compatibility mode for Win 7" in the box-

Now select the security tab, once there you will see a list of name's. Check to see if your name is there, if so click on it, and make sure it is highlighted, now look at the boxes at the bottom that show your security clearance, if the top box is not selected, select it (it will auto select the box's below it except for the bottom box), never check-mark that one)- if your name is not there, use the same procedure as below for your name.

Look for another name in the list called users(your PC name) if not there hit edit again enter users in the box and it will add it to the list- select it, make sure the top box is checked and the bottom is not. restart.

After restart go the the main hunter folder in program files\32\
Right click on the folder, uncheck the read only box, wait till it's done.

Now you have full control of your program. This work's for most programs you want to run in Win 8-8.1.
