Windows 7 "failed to write to Registry" message received when attempting to install software
I am attempting to install SolidWorks2010 SP5 on a Windows 7 machine. I am logged in with a local administrator account. When I start installing the software I immediately receive a message that states " Failed to write to the Registry".
I have changed the user account control settings to "Never Notify" and rebooted. This did not change anything. We have also seen other "failed to write to Registry" problems with Windows 7. I doubt that we are the only ones.
