Registry problems !!

An application that I an maintaining is written in Delphi 3.0 running on NT 4.0.  The app runs fine on NT 4.0, I installed the app on a machine running NT 3.51 and I get the following error message when the app tries to display the about form and the same the error on two other forms displayed at start up :)
"Cannont crete Key Options".

I think it has something to do with the registry.  The following is the registry key used on the NT 4.0 machine :)
VersionDate=First release (1 April 1998)

I look at the NT3.51 registry and It's quite different. I don't have much experience dealing with registries or Delphi for that matter, it would be greatly appreciated if someone out there could point me in the right direction.

Thanks !!

I can't seem to find the Key in the NT3.51 registry.  When I do a regedit on NT3.51 its totally different......  I will check to see if I have access to the registry!!!!

How does it look under NT3.51?

Some values different type?
Check that you have accessright to the key...
maybe there are some minous differents in the registry of Win NT 3.5 and NT 4.0 like Win95 and NT 4.0

Create all the keys in the 3.5 using the same path/names/keys you have in the 4.0 server.

If you get a registry error, it means there's something wrong in the application.

if not, and you have access to the code, check the operating system version, and modify it accordingly.
