    Hey there @Bodybuilder,

    As a quick clarification, are you attempting to run the game or the launcher as an administrator? Error 1005 is a specific error that means the launcher is unable to access folders that it needs to.

    Just to be sure, head to the installation folder for ESO (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Zenimax Online\Launcher), right click on the Bethesda.net_Launcher file, and choose Run as Administrator.

    If that helps, you can make sure that the launcher runs as an admin every time by right clicking on the Bethesda.net_Launcher and selecting Properties. Head to the compatibility tab and check off the Run as Administrator box towards the bottom, choose Apply, then Ok.

    If this doesn't help, let us know and we'll be happy to continue doing what we can.

    As a side note, we've moved this thread to PC technical support as it fits the subject a bit more closely. Thanks for your understanding!
