I realise this is more a Windows NT security question than a VB
question but perhaps some one can help.
I'm connecting to the registry on a remote computer and looking to read a value from the registry key (on the remote host) called:-
There is a value in this key called "MyValue". All I need is read access and the security descriptor for this key (and all it's parent keys) provide read access to the "Everyone" group.
When I try and open the key I get an access denied error message. The only way I can read the data is if I add my user account to the Adminstrators group on the remote host.
The Administrators group provides too much access (read/write/delete etc.) where as I only want standard users to be able to see the data.
Can anyone tell me what's going on?
