    Default Terminal Server / Terminal Servcies weird menus

    I get a message "Failed to Update the System Registry" every time my users go into the Terminal Server and run A5 v5.
    Also those same users get a stacked menu view of the toolbar which is very strange. Please goto
    http://www.emeraldphysicians.com/a5/a5menu.gif to view this weird stack of menu items.
    Any thoughts are appreaciated.

    the "failed to update the system registry" occurs because alpha writes to the registry everytime it is opened. since alpha is installed using an administrator account, but it being used by a user, the user doesn no have rights to modify the registry, so that message pops up.

    i have found no good solution to the problem and just make my users press 'ok' when that message appears.

    never had any probs with the menus in terminal server tho...
    does that same problem occur when just running from a local machine?

    No it doesn't. This doesn't happen with the administrator account. I have set the files up in the runtime directory so that the users have full access to the A5 program and it's directories.
    Nice to know others have the same regedit problem but it would be nice if it was fixed.

    The regedit message is not a problem that needs a "fix". The error doesn't occur when you log in as administrator because the administrator installed a5 and has access to the administrator accounts registry.

    when user xyz runs a5, it tries to write to the administrators registry file (which it doesnt have access to).

    If you don't want the message to appear you have to run a5 as administrator, but that means that all your users will know the administrator password, which is not a good thing.

    Well then that's the problem that ought to be fixed. The users should be able to modify the necessary parts of the registry to be get in without an error.
