ArcGIS Engine 10.0 Controls Example / Custom Tool registration

Greetings!

I am going through the ArcGIS Engine Controls example (C# version) in the ESRI Resource Center.  All goes well until I attempt to build the Commands project, a custom tool.  It attempts to write to the registry  which fails due to lack of admin privileges.  I thought with Version 10 you didn't need registry access.  Is that true only for desktop add-ins?  How/where does ESRIRegAsm come into play?  Is ESRIRegAsm a custom tool that still accesses the windows registry?

Edit:  Running with Windows XP SP3, Visual Studio 2010 set to framework 3.5.

Thanks in advance!
