I agree with Paul. We have never had to place TNS_ADMIN in the Registry though we have added it to the Window's Environment Variables. Our Windows team pushed variable settings to the users so that a network drive location is used for the tnsnames.ora location. So we can make changes to one central located file and have the users pick it up on next use.
