FW3 on XP - Macromedia Fireworks

I (as Admin) recently installed Fireworks 3 on my new XPro system. It runs OK when I am Admin, but as a lowly user, I get the following error: "Failed to update the system registry. Try using REGEDIT" Clicking OK yields "Could not launch Fireworks. An internal error occurred" Is this an XP permissions issue? How to recover? Laurie...

    Default FW3 on XP

    I (as Admin) recently installed Fireworks 3 on my new XPro system.
    It runs OK when I am Admin, but as a lowly user, I get the following
    error:

    "Failed to update the system registry. Try using REGEDIT" Clicking OK
    yields "Could not launch Fireworks. An internal error occurred"

    Is this an XP permissions issue?

    How to recover?

    Laurie,

    Since FW3 was released before anyone even heard of Windows XP, it wasn't
    made to run reliably on XP Pro. Have you tried changing the
    compatibility mode to Window 98?

    It is not a reliability issue, it runs OK as Admin, but not as Lowly
    User; thus, I suspect it's one of those goofy XPro permission things.
     
    Yep, just did; and all the way into the dark, remote, and forgotten
    past...
    Same response.
    Any idea how to give Lowly Users permission to run this?
