Cannot display LocalServer32: Error reading the value's contents.


  • Hi,

    I am looking into an issue with my Office 2007 virtual package when Office XP is installed locally. I am running regedit through a script before the office 2007 application starts and have narrowed down the issue to a specific reg key and value REG_MULTI_SZ.
    Now although the value and data appear in the virtual registry tab of the sequencer, I am unable to view them through registry and get the error 'Cannot display LocalServer32: Error reading the value's contents.' whenever I try and open a key that contains a REG_MULTI_SZ value.
    Is this a bug?

  • Hello,

    Check if the security descripter is kept (checkbox in the sequencer), this maintains ACL for all of the virtual environment.
    Are you running the script inside the bubble or outside?

    Apart from that I found this thread;

  • Hi thanks for the reply, but this effects Reg_MULTI_SZ values that aren't even in the sequence. I can view these in regedit outside of the bubble, but when I launch within I get the error stated above.
