Upon opening RSS B 1.2.0.117 receive the query "Do you
want to set RSS Bandit as your default aggregator?"

Upon selecting "Yes", received an "registry write access
denied" dialog.

Running as member of the "Users" group, XP SP2, default
ACLS.

    This is by forced by the OS: to register the aggregator as the
    default aggregator we have to write/create an entry within
    HKey_Classes_Root named feed as an URL:feed protocol.
    By default, there are not all users allowed to write to.

    Workaround: start RssBandit.exe with the "Start as..." option
    and choose the local administrator account. Then try again
    registering RssBandit as the default aggregator. After that it
    should work also without Administrator rights.

    In the next release we will display better information about
    that.
