          The bypass worked for installing but unfortunately DS wouldn’t work once we started trying to build something inside of DS.  If you would like to go ahead and try the registry path is:

          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer


          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

          Sorry for being a bit misleading, we were just working on the install when I posted yesterday and hadn’t tested DS beyond the install.

    Tip tested today with Design Studio 1.4 SP1: it solve the installation problem but once in Design studio we got an error message in the rendering window (Browser version issue)
