    It's something in Windows 10 and 11 on new PCs (as I said before, I had no problem on my old Asus desktop--but the Lenovo that succeeded it was problematic as it was current spec and a new, modern PC) in which the default user is NOT the admin also.

    In fact, I just did it a few days ago so I could install the game (I FINALLY located the proper USB cable for my removable disk drive)).

    On another note, removable disk drives that aren't USB-C are SLOW. I think it's time I replaced it.

    A new Windows update even refused me playing Sims 4. I found out why by clicking the Notifications at the extreme left of the Taskbar. It gave me the option to sanction Sims 4 through the firewall. Perhaps it did that to those having difficulty.
    If having problems with Windows 10, check System, Home, enter firewall in search box and that will give you an option in the list of App permissions and 'Allow through firewall' if you are using Windows Defender.
