SQL Compare Check For Updates Bug

SQL Compare will throw a SecurityException while trying to access the registry if a non-admin user clicks Check For Updates on the Help menu.

I'm guessing this is because SQL Compare tries to get write access to a key that a non-admin user can only read.

At the very least SQL Compare should fail gracefully under these conditions. Ideally a non-admin user should be able to see if updates are available even though they might need an admin to install the updates on their behalf.
