This is in no way related to samba which doesn't handle the registry at
all - except that the user's registry hive might be stored in a profile
directory on a samba PDC...
This is normal for WinNT & successors. If a program behaves like this in
normal operation (i.e. when not running its setup or changing
user-independent global options).

Either get an updated version of the program which is known to work on
WinNT, W2K, WinXP as normal user or - as a last resort - grant access on
those registry keys to the users that need to run the program.

Gotta love the Windows Registry... (restricting access is a Good Idea in
general, though)
