Have I log in as an administrator ?

Post by ssslab »

Have I log in as an administrator to change any registry key access ? How can I get the registry key access for some user if I log in as the limited user ?

Generally you need to log on as a user which has the right to change registry key access. It depends on the registry key access itself, which user has access to change it. This is how the ACL ("access control list") approach of the NT family works. If you want to know which access a specific registry key currently has, you can check it out by using regedit.exe. Just click on a registry key, then in the regedit menu you can check/change the access rights.
