Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer Tool - Server Not Found?

I am running a single server that is a DC for a 2003 domain as well as an Exchange 2003 server. I am getting the following error when I try and run EXBPA:

"Exchange server cannot be contacted"

Any idea why? it seems to be permissions related somehow:

08:24:33.264: Error (Security error.) opening registry key reg:/server.domain.com/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, skipping object

I am running the tool from the server, and the previous page shows the org name, admin group, and servername. I am not sure why the scan says the server is not found.

I am logged in with my personal account which has Exchange Full Admin permissions and Enterprise Admin domain privledges.
