Modify registry key in VISTA

Hi!

I'm looking for anyone who has had issues with installs not being able to modify registry keys in Vista OR info on adding the trusted installer group back to Vista.

Anyone?

Hello Michael,

I faced some problems with registry and with migration of power user group setting (from windows XP to Vista). After some troubleshooting I realised that - "UAC in Vista, does not leverage the Power Users group, and the permissions granted to the Power Users group on Windows XP have been removed from Windows Vista. UAC enables standard users to perform all common configuration tasks. The Power Users group, however, is still available for backwards compatibility with other versions of Windows. To use the Power Users group on Windows Vista, a new security template must be applied to change the default permissions on system folders and the registry to grant Power Users group permissions equivalent to Windows XP."

Here are some references for you, please post the exact problem for accurate answer,
