HKCU repair on first lanch works for admin but not standard user

I've created a transform for Open WorkBench 1.14 to insert some HKCU entries on first run. I've done this using the usual method of making the HKCU reg entry a keypath of a component which belongs to a feature which is a parent of all other features. The shortcut is advertised and belongs to a child feature.

I've tested this as working in my production environment for standard users (on XPPSP2).

A couple of admins at other sites have asked for a copy of the transform and are finding that the transform only works for admins, not standard users.

I've had a look over the transform, and can't see what would be causing the repair not work. Has anyone ever seen a HKCU repair work for admins and not standard users?

Hi Michael,
does installer pop up on a users profile? If yes, only the first time or always?
Please turn on logging on the client and log a repair on a standard users profile.

usually this happens when your HKCU items are mixed with other items such as HKCU or files in locked down areas.

Are all you HKCU items in a components that are not shared with other locked down items .?

Thank you both for your replies. It turns out a couple of them just hadn't used the advertised shortcut. All is fine now. cheers
