Steam Games -- Parental Controls issue...

3 posts in this topic

Parental controls are turned off for my steam library.  Any installed game can be started directly from within Steam.  However, when a game is "loaded" into DimmDrive and I attempt to launch the game, the following error message comes up:

"Failed to start process for <game name -- happens for all games>"

"The operation was blocked by parental controls." (0x15A)

This sounds like Windows User Account Control.

The files may be "read only".

Load the files onto Dimmdrive > Open the Dimmdrive > Select all files/folders > right click > properties > uncheck read only > apply > ok

Let me know if that helps!

Apologies for the delay!

All the files were indeed marked as read only in the Dimmdrive.  I unchecked read only > apply > ok 

Though I'm still getting the message.  Interesting, if I try to run the game from the file manager view, I get a Microsoft family pop-up (see attachment)...

Clicking on the "Ask by Email" button returns a "something went wrong" error.
