I do have my own set of registry entries which the app uses. I am trying to avoid
having the installation require any input of data during initial start of app. It
finds the server on the network, accesses the servers registry and get the information
on paths from there without intervention.

It works fine on NT/NT when logged on user is administrator on server and workstaion
where installation/startup of client is being executed. It uses the SID to recover the
info from the server registry. This is a very narrow approach and would not work with
95/98 as a server or client since that has no SID. Since the HKEY_CURRENT_USER is not
accessible through RegConnect, I am screwed unless server and client are NT. So there
must be another approach like IBConsole writing reg data to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Just an exercise. Thanks.
