When I try to run IceChat as a limited user, I get this error when I connect to a server:

ERROR:ucServerList:Function:ConnectServer:False:1:1 Error Number:429 : ActiveX component can't create object

IceChat needs admin rights to install onto your computer.

I installed as an admin.  The problem occurs when running as a limited user.

I installed it as an administrator and ran it as a limited user.

Yes, I understand that, but have you tried running it as admin?

Well, I don't know whats causing it then.
I know what the problem is, its not accessing a registry entry for winsock, which is why its getting error 429.
So perhaps the user is too limited.
Is this in Windows XP or Vista?

It's Windows XP but I have it pretty secure.

Ah, well, you probably made it too secure then :)

It is not a common problem with IceChat, so you either need to loosen the reins a little bit, or look for a different program.

I'll try that, because I really don't want to
look for a different program.

Uh oh....

I tried with a different administrator account (not the one I installed with) and it's giving me the error too.
