Hi. I'm writing something for the Indigo New Language Speed IF, where you have to use a language you've never tried to program in before, and have been working in ADRIFT for a week now with no problem.

Suddenly today I'm getting two registry errors when I click the 'Run Adventure' button:

Error adding description to ADRIFT.taffile in registry
(HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT)

Error adding description.tasfile in registry
(HKEY _CLASSES_ROOT)


I rolled back my system (Windows 7) to a restore point from earlier in the week, but it doesn't go away. It does seem to still process the game despite the errors, but it makes me nervous.

Any ideas of how to fix this?

TIA, Isquiesque

Hiya. If you right click on Runner and select Run as Administrator, it should have sufficient permissions to add the file extensions to the registry.

Huh. Worked fine for a week, then this, and yes — running it as admin made it go away. Odd, but hooray and thank you! :D
