I was just wondering whether anyone knew what to do with this message

"registry editing has been disabled by your administrator"

it was encountered packaging Adobe Photoshop Elements on a locked down XP build. The message comes up after self-repair for the user, and on each subsequent launch of the app. I have given full permissions to the registry AND the regedit.exe, but to no avail.

Thanks in advance,

So you got that message too?? =)

It´s the crappy programmers on Adobe thats using the ABC80-technology (*ironic*) to import registry information using regedit.exe /s regfile.reg, instead of writing it directly to the registry...

I have opened the reg-file it's trying to import, but the information is already in my package, but it want to add it anyway...

Maybe you can find a solution for it???

Adobes own solution at the time was to remove the .REG file from the package, but I tried this and it didn't work for me. See technote here

yeah, I tried that, didn't work for me either. I also removed the reference to regedit.exe within Photoshopelements.dll within the main installdir, but no luck. if anyone thinks of something, please let me know,
