This is trying to set a value in the registry and is (it appears) being
denied access.  Have the permissions of the user's account changed recently?

However, AFAICT, this code should only be executed when you are trying to
register (install) the plug-in.  Did the user try to do that?  If so, then
the actual problem might be in an older log.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
