comment Age of Empires Online Launcher does not start
@powtac - Yeah, I hear ya. It's kind of annoying and not exactly intuitive. You can run it as admin by right clicking. You can set the properties on the shortcut so it always runs by choosing "Run this program as administrator" from the Compatibility tab of the properties window for the shortcut.

comment Age of Empires Online Launcher does not start
@powtac - It's not the same as an installer asking for permissions to install something. I could be wrong, but I don't think there's a way for applications to force the user to escalate their privileges. Also, in this case, they wouldn't want you to run the game unless you have the latest version, so forcing you to be an admin is really the only option.

Technically, w/o admin access the user does have write rights to things like the My Documents folder, which is why many games now put your save games there. However, UAC prevents write access to Program Files (as @mordi2k said) unless you're admin. So, if you want to actually update the game's files or EXE, you'd need admin rights.
