If you're running Vista with User Access Control enabled, you need to edit the LOTRO shortcut slightly. Follow the steps below and you should be up and running soon.

  • In the game installation folder, right-click the TurbineLauncher, it has the Ring Icon, and choose "Properties".
  • You'll see a window pop up with six tabs: choose the Compatibility tab.
  • At the bottom of the window, you'll see a section called Privilege Level. Check the box next to "Run this program as an administrator" and click the OK button.

- Start up your game again and it will be able to install what it needs.
