Hello,

I am trying to read a registry key using the SQL server process. The SQL server is configured to run as the local system. When using the SQL server management studio and the following commands, I get these results. Should I try to run the SQL server under some other account?


exec master.dbo.xp_regread 
        N'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE',N'SOFTWARE\PH_application\IHS Default UOM',N'Weight'
