There was another thread on this just recently. The application is trying to
write to restricted parts of the registry (I've also seen this with
QuickBooks)...poorly written applications IMHO.

Instead of making all users Domain Administrators (very bad, as you know), I
add the group "Domain Users" to the client local "Power Users" group. This
requires going to each client PC to make the changes, which may not be the
best option (depends on how may client PCs you have).

It may also be possible to use policies to accomplish the same result, but I
haven't tried.
