Hi friends;

      Has anybody worked on RegCure application?  I am not able to launch main exe in user. It throws the message box demanding need of administrative access. I checked out using ProcMon, it didnt help.  Is it the way it works ?

You can download the application compatibility toolkit from Microsoft, and this tool is idea for diagnosing the type of problem you are experiencing.

You run the application compatibility toolkit from an administrator account, and use it to start the main executable of your target application, in this case RegCure. Then you use the application normally - exercise as many of its functions as you can. Then run a report from the ACT and it will tell you where admin access is required.

HOWEVER, if the name "RegCure" is intended to convey the function of this application - ie it is a tool to fix the registry, then you will definitely need to run it with administrative access for it to be able to make changes to the parts of the registry that are not user specific.
In other words, only HKCU has full access for users, the HKLM hive is read only for non-admin users.

Yeah I have been using ACT for vista but it didnt click to use it in XP . Nice option, but the other logic you explained for Regcure is more convincing I guess this application is meant for Admins. Thanks

...all of which ProcMom, properly set up, will show you in a blink.

Don't know why 'x' happened? Want to know why 'y' happened? Use ProcMon and it will tell you.

Shades of Oedipus perchance?

Consider also that ProcMom is perceptually Son of FileMon and RegMon...it's like a really bad soap opera!

or maybe Fileman and Regmom?
As you say, another contender for the soap awards....
