The installation of LockDown Browser requires that the user be logged in to the computer as a local Windows Administrator. Otherwise, the below error might be returned:
“Unable to store institution ID to the registry, installation will not work correctly”
This error commonly occurs when the user attempts to use “Run as administrator." In this case, the error can be resolved by logging in with administrator credentials and attempting the installation again.
In some rare cases, security software installed on the computer has been set up to intentionally write-protect the Windows Registry. If so, this must first be temporarily disabled in order for the installation to succeed.
