Can't edit registry but have admin permissions
Posted on 2006-07-19
Am running Windows XP Home SP2. Am trying to change a file association in the registry using regedit. ZIP extention files lost their association when I unistalled winzip and for some reason,
I'm unable to manually edit the registry using regedit. I get the error message "Cannot Edit. Error writing the value's new contents"
Have also tried the following from the command line:
"cmd /c assoc .zip=CompressedFolder" but get the error message "DllRegisterServer in zipfldr.dll failed. Return code was 0x80004005"
Get the same thing when I try:
I have admin rights - I installed the OS myself. Any ideas? Thanks.
