Anybody know what the cause of this error is? It appears frequently when I try to load the game, the only thing that temporarily fixes it can be removing and reinstalling, but that takes a long time and doesn't even work most of the time.

Probably the most encountered bug ever. Run MW as an administrator, should fix it.

That's odd. I already am an administrator, is there anything specific I need to do or any other known causes of the error?

No, I mean actually run it as an admin. There's a difference. Go into the properties for your MW shortcut and go to comparability mode and check RUn as Administrator. Then run it and report back. :D

Ctually, do the above only if this works: right click > run as administrator.

This problem is found all the time when not running as admin. We have had countless number of threads on the subject. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt :D

I really wish I would've gone directly here after encountering the problem, such a simple solution, and I spent literally all day trying to fix it.

That's why I suggested this problem be put in the Morrowind Common Technical issues thread. :D
