Are you trying to install from an administrative account?
I have tried to run it from my account, which is at admin level, I have also used "run as an administrator, from the start bar > right mouse> run as an administrator. I have also had a look at the ACRORD32 in the registry path above, it will not let me edit, view or delete. Looks as though Adobe 8 has locked this registry value?? Thanks & will appreciate any further advice.
Sounds like you'll have to give yourself ownership of and/or
permission to access that key. The following helped someone else
with a problem like yours when trying to install a different app. I
don't have Vista, so I can't test it myself.:
Right-click the key, then Permissions. On the Security tab, click
the Advanced button. Click the Owner tab. In the Change Owner To box
in the middle, choose your own login or Administrators. Click the
Apply button. OK out of everything, then go back, right-click the
key, choose Permissions again, click Advanced again, click the
account you want to change (your own or Administrators), click the
Edit button, change the permissions, OK your way out, reboot and see
if your problem is solved.
I have Windows XP and also have the same problem with HKEY and read your instructions but can you tell me how to get to the "key" that you state to click on. Thanks for any info you can provide
