    Hi all...

    Someone please help. For some reason, my registry wont let me create a new key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. No problem with any of the others, just that one. Gives error message: "Cannot create key; error writing to the registry". It let me a couple of days ago, but wont now.


    Thanks in advance...

    Are you trying to write from a .reg file, or directly into the registry??
    Also there are some keys that are locked. If by any chance you have selected one of these, all you have to do is right click on the key header and select permissions and then activate the relevent users.

    Let me know if i'm totally wrong!!
