    Hello there,

    since it buggs me pretty bad I though I want to create a report about it.

    everytime I start my game from steam it asks me for admin privileges and wants me to enter my password.

    I can esc out or enter it. In both scenarios the game seems to start correctly.

    I am used to it asking after the game updates when steam has to change something, but only Space-Engineers is asking for perms all the time. No other game does that.

    Is that intended? What are the perms used for? Am I the only one with that issue?

    What can I do to fix?

    If Windows...
    Try finding the space Engineers .exe file ( I don't know where you told steam to put it )
    right click it and choose properties
    click on the compatibility tab.
    see if 'run as administrator' is checked....
    if it is, uncheck it and click on ok
