Hi Experts,

I am having a Windows XP policy error (I am on the LAN) when I try to open the Oracle Administration Assistant for Windows (local tool). A pop-up appears with the following message: "Current policies prevent the Microsoft Management Console from opening in author mode. Contact your administrator for details."

Is there a way to prevent that, I mean maybe changing something in the registry? Thanks!

I grabbed this info from the site at the end of my post.  See if this helps point you in the right direction.
This may be a domain policy so it may revert back.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC
This registry key can prevent users from opening the MMC in Author mode, from opening console files in Author mode, and from opening any console files that open in Author mode by default.

The registry key stores the setting of the "Restrict the user from entering author mode" Group Policy. Group Policy adds an entry with a value of 1 to the registry when you enable the policy. If you disable the policy, Group Policy sets the value to 0. If you set the policy to "Not Configured", Group Policy deletes the entry from the registry and the system behaves as though the value is 0.

Value = 0 (or not in registry) The policy is disabled or not configured. Users can open the MMC in Author mode.
Value = 1 The policy is enabled. Users cannot open the MMC in Author mode.

When the value of this entry is 1, users cannot open a blank MMC console window from the Start menu or from a command prompt and users cannot create console files or add or remove snap-ins. Also, because they cannot open author-mode console files, they cannot use the tools that the files contain.

Here is where I obtained the info:
