Hello Experts,
      Ok, I work for a small software company that deals with some specialized accounting programs.   We've found that when we install the software, the user that will be using it must have Administrative rights for just the install.  When were done installing Admin rights can be removed.  I emailed the Company that actually develops the programs that we work with and asked them if they have anything formal that explains why this has to be done.  This was my reply:

Grant Full Control to the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT & HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE on local
machine to the network user using our program.

My question is, how would I do that?  I wasn't aware of a way to set permission like this.  does this make sense to anyone else?

Rick

It can be done with regedt32.exe, not with regedit.exe, but you've got a problem
