user access rights problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

I installed QuickBooks, Simple Start. When I try to open the program it
gives me an error dialogue box saying I need Administrative Group rights. I
am the only user and I have administrative rights. I don't know how to get
access to the program or why this is an issue. I've never seen this error
message before. I read about permissions and checked to be sure.

What Group are they talking about? How do I figure this one out?

    Carey, I was excited for the help until I realized I had to pay in order to
    see the answer. what's up with that? thank you for the offer but - I
    thought this was a free forum and help for the users?

    Thanks -

    This is what you need to do:

    1) Create a "Quickbooks Users" group
    2) Add your users to this group
    3) Give the group Full Control to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intuit\QuickBooksRegistration (RegEdt32.exe)
    4) Give the group Full Control to the .QPG key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (RegEdt32.exe)
    5) Give the QuickBooks Users group Modify rights to the "X:\Program Files\Intuit\Quickbooks..." folder

    Carey -

    Thank you very much. and HELP! I have done the steps. It took me awhile
    to get there - but I have done it. Unfortunately I had one problem and now a
    huge issue:

    on step 4 - there was no .QPG key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    I did a search throughout the registry to be sure I didn't miss it.

    I did all other steps, however.

    I even rebooted.

    Now instead of the don't have access rights error message I have a fatal
    error: It says -

    Fatal Error: QuickBooks has encountered a problem. Close all open
    applications and restart QuickBooks. If the
    problem persists, insert the QuickBooks CD into your computer and then
    reinstall the software. If you encounter the
    problem again, contact Technical Support.
    Function: LicenseUtility::Initialize
    Signature: bool __cdecl LicenseUtility::Initialize(void)
    File: .\.\src\LicenseUtility.cpp
    Line: 431


    ===

    Whatever do I do now?

    Just checking if Rose has solved her fatal error. I have the exact same
    issue.
