This functionality will help all in providing the Rights for running MX as restricted user.
The MX installation is designed to set write access for all users on files and folders where required.
So although you must install as Administrator it also sets write access for "Everyone" on the files which require it
So it is not necessary to modify the permissions on any files post-installation even if the user only has "restricted user"permissions. If an IT administrator decides to change access permissions on folders AFTER the MX installation, then the following files/folders require write access:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application data\Bentley\MX
C:\Documents and Settings\<User Profile>\Local Settings\Application\Data\Bentley\MX for XP.
C:\Users\<User profile>\Appdata\Local\Bentley\MX for Vista/Windows 7.
Users need "Full Control" on the project folders (read and write alone are not enough as this can prevent existing files being modified).
They also require Write access to Hkey_Current_User, and HKEY_Classes_Root, and Read Access to Hkey_Local_Machine in the registry.
