  • Hello,

    It seems the user account used to open the registry does not have enough permissions.

    Try running command prompt with elevated privileges and run regedt32 from the command prompt:

    1.Click the Start button .

    2.In the Search box, type command prompt.

    3.In the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    4. type "regedt32.exe"

    Hope this helps.
