SharePoint 2013 and InfoPath - "Invalid Form Template" and "Requested registry access is not allowed"

Another problem solved.

After upgrading our SharePoint 2013 Farm (Development Environment) to the latest CU (Sept 2015) we were unable to open forms, which were created using InfoPath. We simply got an "Something went wrong" error.

Checking the ULS Logs, I saw following error:

"Requested registry access is not allowed"

And, opening the form in Info Path and publishing it again, I got this one:

"Invalid form template"

After googling around, I found a hint in this TechNet Post. Ok, it's not a hint, more TEH SOLUTION! :-)

Long story short: Add the groups "WSS_WPG" and "WSS_ADMIN_WPG" to the Registry Permissions under "HLKM/Software/Office Server/15.0" and give them the appropriate Permissions.
