    OK longshot time. I've installed Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.12 (think that's right) onto some PCs in our school network. As an admin user when I log on it works fine, but when I log on as a student user I get an error message saying certain registry keys require write permissions.

    In the same message it says view the read me file for more info but of course that says nothing about the registry!

    Anyone help?

    It will require administrative rights and I doubt this requirement can be removed. It's effectively the same for any installable program that requires local installation and admin rights to run - this one is no different.

    A work-around with be to add 'Domain Users' to the local administrators group to permit the program to run as intended.

    Else, read up more about it on google is my advice.

    It's Windows XP. Problem solved by adding Domain Users to local Admins Group. Thought I had already done that which is why I was puzzled! Thanks for your help.

    For XP, exactly what does "add 'Domain Users' to the local administrators group" mean?

    What must I do?
