Edit register without administrator permission

Posted on


I need to do an ADO query from Excel using ADODB.Connection with several types of data. The problem is that in some cases some of the result’s recordset have the values empty or numerical. As this connection with ADO automatically detects the type of the fields using only the first 8 recordsets, the query sometimes fails.

Searching on stackoverflow I found one soluciĆ³n, but it implies to edit the register but I am not administrator user of the computer.

Is there any way of modify that key value without Administrator Permission?



If you are trying to write to any registry keys besides HKEY CURRENT USER you must have local administrator rights.

There is no way around this.
