Thanks, Martin. A lot of things in Vista now require more priviledge than
before, at least when run from a user-mode program. It could be something
as simple as ensuring that you only try and access the HKLM part of the
registry with read-only access.
By the way, I am seeing rather poor performance of NTP on Vista, and yet
Heiko (?) reported good performance earlier this year (IIRC). Any tests
done at Meinberg? Here are my results:
Periods of stability and periods of oscillation. Why? The service is
C:\Tools\NTP\bin\ntpd.exe -M -g -c "C:\Tools\NTP\etc\ntp.conf"
on that system - the image path in HKLM\CurrentControlSet\services\ntp\.
