My application works well on Vista, Win 7 32 and 64 bits.
It modifies some registry key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
But when run on Win 8 (both 32 and 64), with minimum level UAC (I drag the slider to bottom, then restart), it doesn't work. And there is the error:
"Application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission, contact your system administrator, or use the Microsoft .NET Framework Configuration tool. Requested registry access is not allowed."
When I disable completely UAC of win 8 by editing registry, then restart computer, my application works well.
If I run regedit on Windows 7 then it runs with elevated priviledges which causes a UAC dialog to pop.
I find it unlikely that your application is doing nothing and yet is allowed total access to the registry on Windows 7. Do you have UAC enabled on your Windows 7 test box? Are you only editing some user data and as such the app might have access? Or perhaps are you installing it on Windows 7 (installing does seem to provide certain priviledges)? Also are you sure that the user for windows 7 and that for 8 both have the same priviledges?
You might be trying to modify TrustedInstaller keys. TrustedInstaller is a special user that has power beyond that of Administrator(s). You will need to take ownership of the key in order to work around that (completely ruining the security on your user's machine). If you need to change keys owned by TrustedInstaller you are doing something very very wrong.
If you are not trying to modify TrustedInstaller-owned keys you probably need to indicate which permissions you want when you open the key:
using (var key = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE\\Foo\\Bar", RegistryKeyPermissionCheck.ReadWriteSubTree))
// .. or ..
using (var key = Registry.LocalMachine.CreateSubKey("SOFTWARE\\Foo\\Bar", RegistryKeyPermissionCheck.ReadWriteSubTree))

Hello everyone! I would like to know how I can read metadata of exported types using the Managed Extensibility Framework. I am using Visual Studio 2008 with .Net Framework 3.5.
In .Net Framework 4.0, this can be achieved through type 'Lazy' but this is not available in .Net Framework 3.5.
Since 'ExportMetadata' was provided in the version of MEF provided for .Net Framework 3.5, I do believe there is a way of reading the metadata in the framework 3.5 but I don't know how this is done. Any guidance, please?
When you add a reference over the network, the IDE will make a local copy of this dll anyway.
So, nothing should be stopping you from copying the dll to your own machine / project folder and referencing it from this local location.
