Re: Registry permissions

I have the same problem. I want to create a key under HKLM, I set the permission to "Everyone", the components isn't orphaned, the required execution level for the release is set to Administrator and I still get the same error message with error... I'm in a basic MSI with InstallShield2008.

Any idea ?

Ho! I just found why I had this error message.. A bad mistake, that was my fault. Error code 18 as we say here!!

It doesn't sound like Henno's suggestion is the problem, but to be fair, it was actually quite a good one.

From the LockPermissions documentation:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa369774.aspx

"The common user names "Everyone" and "Administrators" may be entered in English and are mapped to well-known SIDs."


That's what I meant ... 😮
I have to leave my dutch behind when doing things in the editor...

Another more intelligent answer and constructive?
I have tried a lot of account (eng & FR), i have always same message.


I would suggest dumping the permission table method, at work we find it to cumbersome and errorprone and hard to change afterwards, when the package is distributed.
We use GPO's to grant permissions, did you thought about that option?
