Hi,

Using VS 2010, ADX version 6.4.3056, when I right-click the project in the solutions explorer and choose "register ADX project" I get the following error:

Requested Registry access is not allowed
Please make sure you're running Visual Studio as administrator

There is only one account on this machine (Windows 7 Prof) and I've triple-checked that this account is in the Administrators group.
Running Windows 7 as a VMware instance.

Where do I go from here?

Thanks in advance,

Wim

Figured it out - right-click VS 2010 and choose "run as administrator".
Works but baffles me as my account is in the same administrators group as the default "administrator" account

Hi Wim,

Yes, you need to run Visual Studio in the "as an administrator" mode. This is the restriction of the UAC (User Account Control) system.
