One way might be to snap the registration process and see if there is just a set of registry keys that are created, if there is you may be able to add them to a transform and save the user the time and trouble of activating the application themselves.

What are you snapping with? If its Wise try using SmartMonitor as well as Snapshot.

Try using filemon and regmon while you register your app, they might give you a clue what happning...

You may find that the user requires write access to a specific registry key OR file on the system. If this is the case you may need to use secedit to allow the user access to the relevant section of the registry. Although i cant help you create the secedit file im sure that there are people out there who can, I only use pre-created stuff in the environment I work and havn't had to create 1 from scratch.

One question I have, if you make the normal user an admin by adding them to the admin group does that remove the problem?

If so its a rights issue and you will need to find the key the user needs write access too.
