Hi,

One of our customer when running the add-in express addin is getting the following error. "Requested registry access is not allowed."

Please note it is not a problem for majority of our customers, it is just in this one installation we are seeing this issue. In fact, it happens only once in a while even for this customer.

I have attached the detailed logs below.

The exception seems to be thrown from

AddinExpress.Projects.Common.ADXRegistry.OpenKey(name As String, writable As Boolean)
mscorlib.dll: N 0192 (0xC0) IL

Is there a solution for the above?

Hello Sean,

Is your add-in per-user or per-machine? Did you ever change this setting?

Please reinstall your add-in, start the host application and, while the error message is shown, please get copies of these files and send them to the support email address (or post them here):

- %temp%\{AssemblyProduct attribute; see AssemblyInfo}\adxregistrator.log in the profile of the user who runs the installer
- %temp%\{AssemblyProduct attribute; see AssemblyInfo}\adxloader.log in the profile of the user who starts the host application

Hello Sean,

This isn't an adxregistrator.log. You can install your add-in on your development PC and check if it produces that file. If the file isn't found, I see these explanations possible:

- theinstaller starts adxregistrator.exe passing it /GenerateLogFile=false;
- the installer does not start adxregistrator.exe at all
- the user looks in a wrong location. Before Add-in Express 8.7, adxloader.log and adxregistrator.log were created in {user profile}\Documents\Add-in Express; with 8.7 and later, you should look in {user profile}\AppData\Local\Temp\{product name (see AssemblyInfo)}.

Check the adxregistrator.exe version that you deploy.
