If you have an application that runs only in install mode, the application is probably looking for a file in the SystemRoot directory rather than the user's Windows directory. You can modify the Terminal Server registry so that the system will allow the application to use the SystemRoot as its Windows directory. To do this, perform the following steps:
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it.
- Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe), and go to the following subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersionWhere appname is the name of the application's executable file (for example, if the executable file name for an application is PROG1.EXE, appname would be PROG1),
- Add the following value:
Flags (Reg_DWORD): 0x00000400
