Hi Everyone ,
I have a doubt related to locked Enviornment. how should i find which registry key / file i need to give permissions in an msi. I have heard about file mon and reg mon but not able to use them effectively. Can anyone give me broad outline procedure for troubleshooting applications with such issues.?

I think regmon and filemon are the most useful, by starting the capture of either tool and setting up a filter (if i remeber correctly!!!) for "ACCDENIED" or "ACCESSS DENIED" then when you start the application and hit a permissions issue this should highlight the keys/files that the software is trying to access.

Hope this helps..

Use ProcMon from the same stable (and author, in fact.) It combines the functionality of RegMon and FileMon but has no limit on filters (FM and RM's exclusion list text-box has the normal text-box limit, the details of which escape me - is it 256 characters?) Whatever, there's a whole bunch of other nice stuff which makes it streets ahead of either of those tools.

From Microsoft site download process monitor. The Regmon, filemon program is now working for microsoft and merge filemon and regmon in a new tool call process monitor.

What you need to do is most manufacturer are not thinking about lock down environment... And that bad. What you need to do is install a software with admin rights in your lab and make sure everything is working. Then reinstall it on a clean computer without starting it. Start process monitor then filter the garbage you will not need (you will learn by yourself what is good and what is not). Then make sure procmon is capturing everything and start your application but not just start it. Make sure to access to most important function. Then stop the capture and look for access denied. But some access denied are common and "normal" so for those you will not need to change persmissions.
