Although it is not necessary to adjust these settings on every machine, occasionally they can cause problems preventing a successful AutoPLANT installation.
**It is strongly recommended that only users with expertise in performing registry edits attempt to do so. ALWAYS make a valid backup of registry entries by exporting them before editing or deleting any entries **
On occasions when files related to the operation of AutoPLANT become somehow corrupted, the best solution to the resulting issues is to reinstall the product.
