Hello List,
I have more information on the problem that I emailed about last week.
The culprit appears to be the 8.1 patch for Acrobat Writer.  It seems
that the code changes permissions on the registry to everyone with Full
Control on the key HKLM\Software\Macrovision.  I right clicked on this
key and the other groups inherited from HKLM\Software keys updated.
That is Local Administrators, CREATOR OWNER, Local Power Users, SYSTEM
and local Users groups.  However, there is a subkey called FLEXnet
Publisher that does not inherit from above.  The permission is set to
everyone Full Control.  This seems to be causing the SCeCli 1202 and the
Userenv 1085 errors we've been seeing.  

Evidently this key is updated on the fly as users access Acrobat.  I'm
told this may be their way to check licensing.  Their Tech Support
suggests creating a GP that would ignore that regkey.  I have no idea
how to do that.  Does anyone on this list?

Thanks in advance for your help.
