File not found error

Hi Deb,

I completely understand that your administrators want to keep the number
of Administrators to a minimum. Making someone an admin so they can get to
the HTML report is one solution, but I think the problem is registry rights.

Judging by the error text, my first thought was a file access problem,
but the HTML file gets written to %temp%, which should be completely open to
the user by default. There is another reason why the error comes up: SQL
Compare can't create a registry key that keeps the location of the Internet
Explorer program file.

To fix this, you need read/write access to the registry keys in

Hope this helps.
