Out of the kindness of his heart and excitement from his own experience, an online buddy of mine gifted me a copy for Christmas. I've read many people complaining that Telltale doesn't have a sense of urgency in dealing with major bugs. I don't know if this is true, but God if they don't, I hope the fix it up pretty soon.
You have to go into the Steam folder and locate both the steam.exe and the walkingdead101.exe files there. For example, mine is located:
Obviously, the D:/games part will be wherever your Steam folder is actually located, but the rest of that is the same for everyone. The steam.exe will be in the main Steam folder, and the walkingdead101.exe will be pretty obvious. Right-click both of those, go to properties, then compatibility. You'll see the option to run as admin, not to mention Windows versions and other settings.
Hopefully this helps.
