Save Key in Regedit32.exe

I am trying to save the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE in Windows 2000.

However it says the i do not have enough priviledges to save it, yet i am an administrator of the computer.

Any suggestions

I am assuming you mean that you are clicking on "EXPORT" with W2k

you might try checking your local security policy...

go under the Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment

once here, check the "back up files and directories" to make sure it includes either of the groups your user id is listed under. not sure if this will help or not. You can also reference the following link for further information:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;322755&Product=win2000
and make sure you have all of the latest patches applied to your computer for windows 2000

one other option is to create a new user as an administrator and attempt to have him export the registry to see if you can isolate it to something being related to the userid itself...

You need to have the 'Backup' privilege to be able to do that, which is not granted to administrators by default. Go to the 'Local Security Policies' control panel applet and grant them to the account or add the Administrator to the backup operators group.

might help to know the process you are taking to "save" the tree... also, are you logging in as "Administrator" or using a user id that was created and added to the adminitrators group? I did test it on my end (WIN2K pro) and had no problems saving it with my user id.. If you are logged in with a user id other than "Administrator" then it is a permissions issue or possibly the "Policy" settings for the user id/group that you are using. I would start by looking at that...

Hello thank you both for your posts.

jkr

I added my self to the "Backup Operators" group. This did not make a difference, it still says "Access Denid" :(

RevelationCS

I am going into regedit32.exe in%systemroot%\system32 and select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and then clicking "Registry" > "Save Key..."  and im logging in using my local account which has been added to the administrators group and also now the Backup Operators group.

Still no luck :(
