Windows 7: Missing privileges for registry key

Missing privileges for registry key

I'm trying to use the program "Dragon Tag", where the program will start MS-Excel, and here put an add-in into the menu. However, I get the below error, where I seemingly do not have the needed privileges. Tried to remedy this without succes, but then I tried to run the program being logged in as the administrator, but got the same error. If the administrator cannot do this, how should any other user then?

---------------------------
---------------------------
Dragon Tag cannot verify the required Word/Excel configuration or adjust it (if required)
because your user account does not have the privileges to read or update the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\\Microsoft\\Office\\Excel\\Addins\\DTStartupShim.Connect.

Adjust your system's security to allow this access for configuration verification and adjustment and then restart Dragon Tag.
---------------------------
OK

Try and install Dragon Tag as administrator.

Right click the installer, Then select run as administrator.

Thanks Braddersz,
That I have already tried without success. Therefore I went to the administrator account and tried to run the program from here just to find out that the administrator didn't have privileges either. And then I don't understand privileges anymore

Hello mlun,

You might see if using step 3 in OPTION THREE of the tutorial below to take ownership of and setting permissions to "Allow" your user account "Full Control" of that registry key may help.

Take Ownership of file

Hope this helps,
Shawn
