    Installing software as “the administrator” doesn’t work


    by whitejm ·

    I am installing a software package and it registers DLL’s that are stored under LOCAL_MACHINE in the registry. The idea is that anyone who logs in to the machine will be able to use the features installed. I am finding in some instances that logging in as “administrator” doesn’t work in that when I later log in as a user, I can’t access the features. However, if I initially log in as any other user who has full adminstrator privileges, all is good – and every user who subsequently logs in is good to go. Does anyone know why logging as “administrator” would not work under this scenario? This has occured on both a terminal server and local workstations.
