How to allow access to the registry when it ias locked down through group policy.
Posted on 2003-11-07
Does any one know of a way to allow a user access to the registry temporarily. We have deployed Adobe Photoshop 7 by creating a deployment package (msi file) and assigning it through group policy. The package installs properly to the computer (as that is what the policy is applied to). An administrator can open Photoshop fine with no problems, but if a regular user tries they get the error "cannot import photoshop.reg, not all data was sucessfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes."
I have come to the conclusion that the above error states that the user does not have access to the registry. If I launch the program as the administrator first then it will work, but we will potentially be deploying this to hundreds of workstations and we just do not have the manpower to go around to each site and perform this. I need to automate this install so that it is ready to be launched as soon as the user logs in. Any thoughts?
