Current user and local machine settings

Some operating systems hold two levels of system settings. Some settings are specific to an individual user and are used only when that user is logged on; these settings are called current user settings. Some settings are global to the computer, and are available to all users; these are called local machine settings. You must have administrator permissions on your computer to change local machine settings.

SQL Anywhere respects both current user and local machine settings. On Windows XP, for example, these are held in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER key and the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key, respectively.
