Bug 46522


GemBuilder for Java


Windows Only

Windows RegCreateKeyEx warning

When running GBJ on a Windows client you may observe the warning message:

WARNING: Could not open/create prefs root node Software\JavaSoft\Prefs at root 0x90000002. Windows RegCreateKeyEx(...) returned error code 5.

This indicates that the user does not have Administrator privileges needed to create the java Prefs registry used by the GbjGciPreferences logging utility.

To resolve this, run GBJ once as Administrator. This will create the Prefs registry so that all subsequent GBJ will not complain.
