    Ad giving access to registry

    Music factory will run as admin but not as a Student or Teacher, it coming up with a registry access error.

    I should know this, but its been one of those weeks, is there a way of letting a program have higher security clearance, or is it a case of finding exactly what reg values it is accessing them and amending those values security manually?

    <my head hurts this week>

    This is exactly the reason that we decided to virtualize all those crappy educational apps. You might take a look at cameyo (free), Vmware's Thinapp or Sandboxie

    You can change registry key permissions via group policy under machine settings, windows settings and if on a server there should be a reg security folder that you can add keys to.

    I'm assuming your still on XP as a lot of this stuff is alleviated with uac reg virtualization. You can use regmon to find out what keys are causing isues.

    I do agree with bio also, app virtualization could also make this much easier.

    I think the key is:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WIDGIT\MusicFactory

    I just gave full permissions to it as part of the installation.
