It seems you are running a web application that acceses Windows registry.
Obviously, the web app running user account (by default, ASPNET or Network
Services) does not have permission to access the registry key.

It also seems you are using MS Enterprise Library Block. So, you may want to
go through the document to see what user privilege is required for that
piece of code to access that Registry Key.

To solve that, you either give appropriate permission to access the said
registry Key (using RegEdt32.exe); or change the web app user account
(impersonate); or, if you think both are pening a security hole, then,
simply do not use that code and change the logic with your own code.

MS Enterprise library's default logging provider is the Event Log. When
you write a log entry using Logger.Write ("") without specifying a
category it will use the default logging categor which is "INFO".

The exception occurs when the enterprise lib is trying to write an
entry to the event log, and might be trying to register an event source
with the event log, which will fail as ASPNET account does not have
prevliges to register write to the event source event log key. Options:

1. Change the default log category of the app to not use Event Log.

- OR -

2. Register the event source used by the enterprise library. (You can
find the event source at loggingdistributorconfiguration.config file,
look for the eventLogName and eventSourceName attributes in the xml
file).

You dont need to provide registry permissions to ASPNET for this. The
only thing required is to register the event source.

Hope this helps...
