Registration Box Pops up Every Time Tableau Desktop is Opened

Issue

After installing Tableau Desktop successfully. Every time a user opens Tableau Desktop, the registration window pops up and the register button is greyed out. 

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 
  • Windows 10

Resolution

Change the user permissions so the user is an administrator of their own computer. 

Cause

The Tableau Desktop user must be an administrator user on their own computer to use Tableau Desktop. Not being an administrator, prevents them from writing to Windows registry and add the registration values. Hence Tableau Desktop keeps prompting every time.
