Hello Experts,

I'm getting an error at the startup of vb. before showing the new project dialog box a message box apears with the title "Data View" and with the message "Automation Error, Error accessing the ole registry".

if i press ok vb will load. but if i goto references in project menu it gives an error message "Error accessing the system registry". therefore i can't change references.

please help me to solve this problem.
