    World of Tanks error 0xc0000022


    TL;DR because forums ate the previous thread I was trying to post

    >Play WoT for 2.5 years on HP laptop, Win 7
    >Breaks down, get new Acer laptop, Win 8 (major hardware upgrade, yay)
    >Additional admin account set up for me, brother uses the original "owner" admin account
    >My account doesn't have permission to run WoT (how does that even work, an admin is denied access and has to give permission to himself)
    >Give permission to run WoT on my account through right click + properties (took a while to find that)
    >Gives me error 0xc0000022 when trying to start through launcher
    >Can still play on the owner account, but that is rather inconvenient








    Help please?

    When he installed , did he get the option to 'install for all users' ?


    option might be to uninstall on his account then re-install and see if that option appears.

    Already tried that, never saw an "install for all users" option.

    Does anybody around here happen to know what 0xc000022 even means?

    It's a permissions error code...

    That's weird, I've applied permissions to my account for the WoT folder, WorldOfTanks and WoTLauncher.

    Right, new patch arrived today, permissions were reset for my account. Applied permissions again to the marked apps again, still denied me access. Everything else already had permission. Access denied upon clicking start.

    Searched for World of Tanks on the other profile, accessed the file that popped up in search, reapplied permission to that... but it's giving me 0xc0000022 instead of "access denied" again.



    But for some reason, the search result looks different on my own profile- I get a generic looking file icon instead of the WoT logo. Does this say anything to you?

    Found Solution, from Googling it.

    Directions for win 7 From Toms Hardware: open a command Prompt as Admin, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on the Command Prompt and select Run as Admin, type sfc/scannow and hit enter, see if it goes away, if not do a clean boot and see if it goes away, if it does then you can enable hardware and find the problem.

    Modified Directions For Windows 8: Go to Search and type command prompt then select command prompt and run as Administrator from the bottom of the page.

I started playing "World of Tanks" a few months ago and I'm hooked! It's just the right combination of simulation, RPG and FPS for me. No blood and gore, just fun!
