I got Q2 to play in Windows 7, I am having trouble with Quake 2 all together, Windows 7 is not allowing me to edit .cfg files within my Q2 folder that is located in: C:/Program Files ( x86 )/Quake2/
It is also not letting Quake2 write files within its own folder, such as save games and config files, is there a way to make Windows 7 to stop doing this, I am unable to change the file atributes of the Q2 folder or any file in it, and I have administrator rights on my system, please help.

Hmm, if Windows 7 is like Vista, you need to turn off UAC (User Account Control) to save files in Program Files.. Not sure how you do it in W7, but in Vista it's pretty easy.. But, the best way would probably be to move your quake2 folder onto C:/ itself.. not in the Program Files folder

Well, if Windows 7 has the same UAC as Vista, you'll have to press like 2-3 accept buttons to make sure that you want to paste/save something into the Program Files folder.. Same thing with the Windows folder actually, but the the C:\ drive itself lets you paste files into it without UAC asking all those questions.. "Are you sure that you are sure that you want to paste this file into this folder?"... Pretty annoying if you ask me! So that's why I turned it off
