For now, try these:
- Update your video card drivers.
- Update your OS.
- Download DirectX 11 and install it.
- After you've performed the above, restart your desktop and try running the game again.
Have to go cheer someone up over dinner - be right back. If those don't work for you, I'll look into this further.

Don't have a laptop yet, was going to but the sale ended, and found another good one but the store only had a returned one...

Ok. So for everyone having issues with Windows 7 64 bit. Pre-setup, go to battlelog.battlefield.com, install the browser plugin(can't launch or play the game without it). Then download origin. Now, before installing, right click it, go to the compatibility tab and the click change for all users. Set it to Vista SP2. Click ok, then run the installer. The game will then be down-loadable under windows 7, no more "have to be signed in as administrator" crap.
For vista users only, make sure you have at least SP2 and this patch, KB971512 installed. There is a graphics issue for Direct-X and better GPU performance that this patch fixes.
My install went through fine after this and game is awesome! Hope that helps anyone else out there looking to fix the "must be logged in as admin" issues.
