When you install Photoshop 5.x in Windows 2000, the Windows registry is updated with an incorrect location for the Kodak ICC profiles. As a result, Photoshop cannot locate the profiles while executing the Print, CMYK Setup, Profile Setup, or Profile to Profile command and returns an error. To resolve this problem, you can modify the registry to include the correct location and to grant all users Full Control permissions to the registry key.
Although both the Regedit and Regedt32 registry editors are available in Windows 2000, Regedt32 lets you modify security permissions.
