Database Registry - no access

I am experiencing this error message when loading a program.  "user has no access to the Database Registry 0x20100000 0x0 0x0" this occurs when loading the "hasp driver".  I thought I had copied the current user from the administrator's account, but apparently I don't understand NT as much as I thought I did.  How do I get the current user access to the "database registry", I am semi-new to this, so really need some help.  I logged on as administrator and installed the "hasp driver" but need to load the particular program as the user and it won't let me have "access to the database registry."  Really need some help here.

Have you also adjusted the access rights? Apart from the other problems that duplicating an admin profile will cause, this is most likely to be causing this one. Try

cacls.exe * /t /e /g <username>:f

from the profile root directory to remedy that.

This sounds very promising, now lets assume I know nothing(since that is pretty much the case)...profile root directory?  and assume the user name is masterco.  Would it be possible for a very detailed explanation?

are we talking:
cacls.exe c:\winnt\profiles\masterco.000 /t /e /g masterco:f ???

I was thinking of 'cd'ing to the directory, but the abbove should work, too.

OK, I am dense, I did the above and didn't change the outcome, should the line read?

cacls.exe c:\winnt\profiles\administrator /t /e /g masterco:f

or

cacls.exe c:\winnt\profiles\masterco /t /e /g masterco:f

I am so confused.

If 'masterco' is the new account, it should be

cacls.exe c:\winnt\profiles\masterco /t /e /g masterco:f
