Excepption when registering Smart Client Guidance Package

Sep 10, 2008 at 3:25 PM


After I successfully built the guidance package development solution with VS.NET 2008, I got the following exception while I right-mouse click on the guidance package project and select "Register Guidance Package":

Recipe Framework Error
An exception occurred during the binding of reference or execution of recipe Register.  Error was:
Action Register failed to execute:
Requested registry access is not allowed..

I got the same exception on both Windows Vista and XP.  Please let me know how to fix this problem.

You'll need to run Visual Studio as an Administrator. Under Vista, create a desktop shortcut, right-click on it and select "Run as Administrator". That should do the trick.Good luck!Erik
