Current XP computers I am trying to run this into give me: "Registry Editing has
been Disabled by your administrator." even if I try to write to Current_User
All I am trying to keep portable is the X server thus XWIN.exe is the only
executable I have, the only one I execute. After running the X server as the
background server I am tunneling the packets using Putty / Securecrt.
I am not able to 'mount' anything since I never run the cygwin environment. Just
the x server. And I can only run it after adding info to the registry entries.
