In reading through posts on the web I found a fix that was published for the "Access Denied Error" received when trying to install SP3. However, this fix didn't correct the problem for us.
Below is what we have tried: "We get an Access Denied when we run the patch. We found some information with regard to the error and it says to run the subinacl.msi and then run the following registry settings:
cd /d "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %windir%\*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose "
The tool installs fine but we are getting errors on the first line for the HKLM. I havent been able to see both errors but one of the keys is
From what Ive read the other is probably
And even with Administrators having full control over the HKLM\Security folder we still dont have rights to even look at the SAI or SAC keys. The stuff Im finding on line describes the problem, but I havent found any resolutions yet. I need to upgrade approximately 4,000 workstations.
Has anyone run into this at all? Any guidance would be most appreciated!!!
