Could not access system registry?

I am running a VB6 debug session on a system from a project group.  The second project is a VB6 DLL.  When I press the run button I get the message "Cannot access system registry".  It appears as though the registration process for the Debug DLL is failing. I have searched the Windows registry and the DLL in question is contained within the registry. (using regsvr32 can register the DLL without problems)   I have been able recently to use the same project group without problems.

I have set the project setting "binary compatibility on" to ensure backwards GUID compatibility.  Others who have used the same project on their machines do not experience any difficulties.  

Steps taken (failed so far):
1)Reboot and restart with nothing else loaded
2)create project group from scratch again.
3)reregister Dlls

Operating system : NT4, VB6 (SP3), Running with 350Mhz processor with 128Mb Ram, 1.4Gb left on a 6Mb disk.

Try This:- (U need Administrator login)
1. Go to desktop, R-Click on My Computer -> Properties
2. Go to Performance tab
3. Click on change (button)
4. There you change the registry size to let's say 64MB.

Reboot your system and run u r VB project.

I hope this will help you :)

Thanks and kind regards.

You saved my life.  I increased the size to 64Mb and the problem has gone.  I think I've had a number of extra programs installed recently which must have increased the registry to creaking point (previous size was 30Mb)
