Error: Failed to update system registry
Version: 3.5 & 3.51 - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, & Scientific Notebook
Starting Version 3.5 as an Administrator when using Windows 2000 or Windows XP works successfully, but starting the program as a Restricted User causes this error:
Failed to update the system registry. Please try using REGEDIT.
Clicking OK seems to correct the error and the program works correctly.
A side effect is that you cannot open a document by double-clicking it in Explorer if your Version 3.5 product is not currently open.
The problem is caused by the underlying Microsoft tools that are used to create our program.
In Version 3.5 or 3.51, either ignore the message or change the user privilege level to Power User or Administrator. The problem has been corrected in Version 4.0.
