I'm running Windows XP Pro and have installed the WinExit.scr screen saver
from C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools. If you are logged on to
a server or workstation without administrative rights, the logoff screen
saver does not function properly.

Other users (without administrative rights ) using my computer get the
following error message when the screen saver kicks in:

"Error encountered while creating registry key. Make sure you have set
values and create subkey permissions."



I have read much on the fix for NT (and some say the fix works, some say it
don't) but



Does anyone have the fix for XP?

Our product ActiveExit XP can do what winexit.scr does, plus much more.

Kahuna3,

Winexit.scr always causes this error when run from a restricted user
account. Here is the information you need:

BTW, the solution is to set appropriate permissions for the registry key
discussed in that article. You can find more information about registry
permissions in this article:
