GeoTools V 9.04 update:

*** Important Bug fix ***

An important bug has been fixed in this version relating to the Windows Vista operating system.

Unitl now, GeoTools was using the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive of the Windows registry to save and retrieve operating parameters. In Windows Vista operating system, however, this was not working as, by default, Vista does not allow any registry entries to be saved in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive using the normal registry functions. This has now been overcome by changing the save location to HKEY_CURRENT_USER instead.

In Windows Vista, you could still over-ride this and make GeoTools save in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE by turning off the 'User Account Control' in the Control Panel. But, this is not recommended and can lead to a security compromise. So, GeoTools now saves its operating parameters in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive in all operating systsems.
