ADEPT registry key should be under local not roaming profile

I just want to make it easier for corporate users of ADE.

Roaming profiles pick up the ADEPT (Authorization data) and copy it to another machine where it's invalid.

Because the authorization is essentially a per-machine setting, it should be stored in the user's local not roaming profile.

In the registry keys, that could look like this:

HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Adobe\Adept

(rather than HKCU\Software\Adobe\Adept)

This will help avoid some of the problems.

Won't help when user wants to de-authorise with an ID that they've either forgotten or changed the password for - the Adept key will then still need to be deleted.

This would be a software change - asking that Adobe consider doing this change.
