Limited accounts

What can be done about an application that works with registry, and working under a limited account? now registry can't be edited in anyway.

The registry can be edited

The registry can be edited with a limited account, but of course, with limitations. I'm not sure what's locked and what isn't, but John makes his launchers work under limited and guest accounts.

there's an application

there's an application called "No-IP"
it stores its data in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Vitalwerks\DUC"
it cant be made portable if i cant edit registry in a limited account.
any idea?

Some of John's apps

are actually using the registry. For example, 7-zip, the launcher writes its settings to HCU\Software\7-zip and deletes them on exit.

Respect.

Limited registry access

As far as I know, with a limited account you're able to edit the registry under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software key but not under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE. I'm not sure but that should be enough for all apps here.

Isn't there a way to create

Isn't there a way to create "virtual" registry?
so the application can deal with it as with real registry, so a limited account won't be a problem. Any idea?

It's really a BIG mistake from the company, because the original application itself doesn't work under a limited account Blum

Both work

Not sure what you mean, but I've just tested both apps (No-IP and Lapwing) and they work (= can be run) from a limited XP account.

OK, no one is deaf around

OK, no one is deaf around here, I already got your point.
Your problem is a hard one because you're not supposed to edit "that" registry key from a limited account. Wait to see if Lapwing works for you, otherwise I can't give you further advice.

And you're welcome.

SOLVED!

LOL!!!!!!!!
Am I stupid Blum Blum Blum
It was a really easy one
No-IP itself solved the problem Blum
in a limited account, it automatically writes its keys to HKEY_CURRENT_USER ........
I didn't know that! lol ...
Thanks everybody for your help (I want to know more about Lapwing)

Thanks again,

Lapwig Tutorial

Hi Steve,
I downloaded your Lapwig but ... I'd appreciate if I could have the tutorial as well. So far I haven't found it around.
Could you please point me to the right direction?

Thank you so much
Mike

Wait

Steve has a new version in development, which will be a lot simpler to use.
