Registry Permission in Visual Studio 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I installed VS 2013 yesterday and acquired a developer licence for it. I have realize that few template can be read in Blend however, the studio could not create new project nor open template.

    It returns a pop window with the message "VS does not has permissions to read from the registry. Please how can I solve this.

    Thank you

  • Hi Ampiaw,

    According to the error message, this problem mostly caused by the permissions of your current Windows User account. Please try run your Visual Studio as administrator through right-click the Visual Studio 2013 icon -> Choose "Run as Administrator".

    Then please make sure you have close all third part software when running Visual Studio. For example, antivirus.

    In addition, please try enable you full registry access with PsExec tools using following command. Please get the PsExec tools from following link.


    psexec -i -d -s c:\windows\regedit.exe

    Best Regards,
