comment Error upon File->Open, every time, in TextPad
@Yaris, another restart and the problem is back. Ran your echo, it shows the user's profile path, not SYSTEM. Also, I couldn't get it to do it in other programs, only TextPad, whose settings do not reference SYSTEM anywhere that I can see.

@Ramhound or maybe now it's better. But if one missed it in the first paragraph I'm not sure one will find it in the middle either.

@Ramhound sorry it wasn't even the first update, it was the initial paragraph. Feel free to suggest an alternate organization.

@Ramhound, in my first update I mention that I installed that hotfix and tried again, with no difference in results.

Also what to make of java.com/en/download/help/error_1603.xml saying it's a known issue that's under investigation... so, I just can't install Java on this computer? Super.

@Ramhound that's odd because my domain account is listed as being of the Administrators group in the user manager. Is that not normally sufficient? I've installed all the other software I need just fine, and I would guess programs like Firefox, Apache OpenOffice.org, Thunderbird, pgAdmin, Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, etc. write to the registry during their installation processes.

comment How do you write to a file within the command line?
It is definitely rudimentary. A bit more context might help--you seem to have one answer so far assuming you're looking for a command-line text editor, and another assuming you know how to use echo and might want to write to a file as part of a script or the like. What are you trying to ultimately use this for?
