Requested registry access is not allowed (english) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear community,

    I am working with Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Foundation and have the following problem:

    When I run "Start Profile Synchronization" in my User Profile Application Service, I get the following Exception in the LogViewer:

    Error encountered in background cache check System.Security.SecurityException: Requested registry access is not allowed.
        at Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey.OpenSubKey(String name, Boolean writable)
        at Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy.MetadataWebServiceApplication.GetMOSSInstallPath()
        at Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy.MetadataWebServiceApplicationProxy.GetChannel(Uri address, Boolean& cachedChannel)


    How can I fix this?

    I googled it and found something with "psconfig". I do not know where to execute this command with SharePoint 2013. Is there any other way to fix this?

    I hope you can help me.

    Thank you.
