Shortcut keys per user?
Is it possible to define a shortcut key with privileges=user instead of adminstrator?

Is it possible to define a shortcut key with privileges=user instead of administrator?

I have an add-on that just has a shortcut key. If I change privileges=administrator to privileges=user in the adxloader.dll.manifest and run the installer as a user I get the following messages in the adxregistrator.log.

It this because it is not possible to register a shortcut key on a user basis, or is something else going wrong? It looks odd that it refers to administrator in Registering the 'trove.dll' assembly (administrator). if it should be registering as a user.

It is also peculiar that the installer reports a successful installation in the user interface. It also creates files in C:\Program Files\Semantic Systems\Trove\, but when you run IE and check Manage add-ons it is not loaded.

Hello,

It's somethig else. A standard user doesn't normally have permissions to create files and folders in Program Files. And you cannot register an IE add-on on the per-user basis; the only IE extension allowing this is IE Bar. Please check the section Deployment Step-by-steps in the manual, see {Add-in Express}\Docs\adxie.pdf
