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 :)
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Old Mutual\IPD\HRIS\Options]
Showaboutform=0
VersionDate=First release (1 April 1998)
ShowWhereToForrm=0
ShowToolTips=1
ReportLibrary=c:\Projects\hris\dcu\HrisRpts.DLL

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!!!!

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.
