cannot creat key: error writing to the register

Answers

  • Hi,

     

    As “Mike Burr” asked, would you please describe the issue in detail and let us know when the issue was encountered?

     

    Generally, this issue can be caused by the incorrect permissions. You may try the following steps to troubleshoot the issue. If this isn’t the case, please provide us the detailed information so that we can provide you the accurate troubleshooting suggestions.

     

    If you were trying to import a registry to Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2, I would like to suggest you logon to the system with administrator account, right click on the registry and select “Run as administrator”.

     

    If it does not work, please also check the permissions of the parent key.

     

    1.     Click “Start”, run “regedit” to launch Registry Editor.

    2.     Click the "+" to expand the folder and navigate to the parent key.

    3.     Right-click on it and choose “Permission”.

    4.     Please check if your account name is listed in the “Group and User name” list. If not, please click the “Add” button. In the "Enter the object name to select", type your user name and click the “Check Names” button and then click the “OK” button.

    5.     Highlight your user name and check on “Full Control” under “Allow”.

    6.     Click the “Advanced” button and choose the “Owner” tab.

    7.     Highlight the current user account in the list and mark the check box before “Replace owner on subcontainers and objects”.

    8.     Click “OK” to save changes and wait for Windows Vista to transfer the ownership of all the objects on the partition.

     

    Note: When trying to replace the owner on subcontainers and objects of the registry entry, if you receive the error message "Registry Editor could not set owner on the key currently selected, or some of its subkeys", please ignore it since it is a normal situation because we cannot take the ownership of all registry entries.

     

    9.     Quit Registry Editor.

     

    Regards,

  • would you have a potential fix for this very same problem but in windows 10 since the owner "tab" no longer exists in this format.
