Restricted User Accounts

The DVBViewer cannot be run in restricted user accounts under Windows 2000/XP/2003 without further ado. Proceed as follows to manually alter the corresponding access rights. Please note: The following operations may damage your system, if not applied correctly. If you feel unsure about it, ask an experienced person for help.

  • Log in as administrator.

  • Extend Registry access rights. The DVBViewer needs to write to two keys of the Windows registry. Since this is not permitted in restricted user accounts, the access rights must be extended. This is done with the program RegEdit (or RegEdit32, if available), which is located in the Windows folder. Launch it and go to the following keys:.


  • Right-click these keys and select in the context menu Permissions. In the window appearing select Restricted users in the upper field; and check the Full access rights box in the Allow column of the lower field. Finish with OK.

  • Extend the access rights for the files channels. dat and setup.xml. Otherwise the DVBViewer is not permitted to re-write these files on termination of the program, so that modified adjustments are lost. Please note: The following intervention can be executed under Windows XP Home only in Safe Mode. Press F5 when WinXP starts to load, then log in as administrator. For both files proceed as follows:

    • Right-click the file, select Properties in the context menu and go to the Security tabsheet. Select Restricted users in the list in the upper part, and check the Modify box in the Allow column. Finish with OK.

  • Attention: Make sure that there are not any ax-files in the Filters folder again, when the DVBViewer is running with admininstrator's rights, especially after having updated (to) the DVBViewer Pro. If an update provides any new filters, you willl have to move and register them, too.

  • In order to avoid future problems with file access rights, install the DVBViewer Pro additionally in the non-administrator user profile (somewhere at c:\documents and settings\...). In this installation profile simply delete all files in the Filters folder.
