The following message may be received if you launch the XCOM GUI for Windows for the first time as a non-Administrator user:
WARNING: Could not open/create prefs root node Software\JavaSoft\Prefs at root 5
To correct, you would need to do one of the following:
1. Invoke XCOM GUI with a user with Adminstrative privileges, then onwards non Admin users can run the GUI without warning being displayed.
2. Edit Windows Registry as follows :
- Create "Prefs" key and provide full access rights to all XCOM users. Here are the different Registry paths depending on your release of XCOM:
For XCOM R11.6 32 bit : HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft
For XCOM R11.6 64 bit: HKey_Local_Machine\Software\JavaSoft
