Summary: Trying to set windows registry as non-admin user
Version: CVS Trunk
OS/Version: Windows XP
When I run Audacity 1.1.3 (installed via EXE) on an XP box as a non-local
machine administrator, I get a message box titled "Audacity Error" with the
content "Can't set value of 'HKCR\Audacity.Project\shell\open\command' (error
5: access is denied.)".
First off, it should be the job of the install routine to set that value. I
presume it was added so that tarball installs would work. That said, what if
I wanted that value to point to the 1.0 code? Second off, if it's already
set, there should be no need for Audacity to update it. This message can, of
course, be worked around by going in as Admin and loosening the privileges on
that exact key, but that's a bit of a hack.
