In the J4W manuel is described how jabber find the right DNS Domain to query the SRV Record.
I have several jabber installations on none domain joined clients (win7 and win8). Most installations can't discover the DNS Domain from the registry.
With a process monitor I see, that jabber hasn't the right permissions to read the regestry keys (see screenshot).
is that a known problem or is that my fault?
Disable UAC, and everithing will work fine.
