Since 1.9.5.5, every time I launch the game from Steam, it gives me a UAC alert and runs a launcher instead of starting the game. This is really cumbersome and tedious. I don't want to have to add the Steam version of Distant Worlds to Steam as a non-Steam game.

How can I make Steam start the game like it used to?

It was meant to launch from the menu from the start, but it was missed in the initial setup. Otherwise finding the manual, modding guide and other links is a bit more of a search. Ideally though, it shouldn't pop up the UAC. I'll check on that and see if we can eliminate the UAC prompt.

In the meantime, if you just create a desktop shortcut pointing to distantworlds.exe it will work as before.
