How can I get vs 2008 application setup to work right for all users?
Posted on 2011-03-23
I apologize as I have absolutely NO idea how to tag this post or what zones to use.
I have inherited an application that has a problem i need to fix. When installed the normal, everyday user gets a blank form and an error saying that it cannot right to the event log when logging in. If an administrator logs in first, though, its does its event log fine and from that point on any normal user that logs in has no prolbem.
Talking to the client, I know that they don't allow a regular user to write to the event log and I know that the same program in other client locations works fine without issue.
I was told, by the person that I inherited it from that when a manager logs in, it sets some registry value and that's why anyone else can use it after; however, there is nothing that touches the registry keys in the code or in the setup project.
What are my options for getting around this? Or is it all on the client?
