Corel Draw 8

Hello guys,

I've installed Corel Draw 8 on a few pc's (W2K) with the user name having admin rights. Then I launched it once.  After the installation, I've removed the admin rights and when I logged back in and launched Corel Draw 8, I got the message: "Unable to add office compatible entries to the registry".

Does anyone has a solution about this? The strange thing is they can work without a problem, it's just very annoying to always get that error message.

Grant full access rights to the user to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Corel key in the registry.

(Of course, do this on a test machine since you are playing with the registry...)

If that doesn't work, install the product as normal.  Then with the user still logged in as admin, use sysdiff to determine what registry entries are being added.  Then assign the appropriate rights to the user.  You can find sysdiff as part of the Windows 2000 resource kit.

Robing66066, thanx, but I already tried to change the permissions in the registry. It didn't change anything.
As for the sysdiff, I have to see if we have the resource kit for W2K in our company.

OK.  That's probably your best bet.  It should tell you exactly what has changed and then you can assign permissions accordingly.
