Game or Steam running with Elevated Privileges

If you see this

you are running Steam or the Game with Elevated Privileges which is wrong on so many levels: running applications or games with Elevated Privileges exposes your system to risks and security vulnerabilities.

 

Disable Steam Compatibility mode or “Run as Administrator”

Go in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam , locate “steam.exe”

Right Click > Show More Options (on Windows 11) > Properties > Compatibility tab > untick “Run this program as administrator”This check must be OFF

Eventually check also the window “Change settings for all users” and check, eventually, if you have the flag also there

Untick “Run this program as administrator” also here.

Then close Steam and the game and restart them.

 

Check also if the game is running as administrator

Locate your Game Installation Directory, go into bin/win_x64

Locate eurotrucks2.exe or amtrucks.exe and repeat the same procedure as before with steam.exe

Right Click > Show More Options (on Windows 11) > Properties > Compatibility tab > untick “Run this program as administrator”This check must be OFF

Restart the game.

Conclusions

If you want to run Steam or the game as Administrator for whatever personal reason, do it, but don’t open a Support Ticket to Trucky: we will tell you to don’t run the game and Steam as administrator. Thanks.
