Error 1402: Could not Open Key - Windows Server 2008 (non R2) 64 Bit System

Hi All,

I have a new BASIC MSI Project.
Its getting installed in all the Operating systems successfully except Windows Server 2008 (non R2) - 64 bit system.

Please find below the MSI Log.

As part of the setup, I'm trying to place the MSCOMCT2.OCX, MSCOMCTL.OCX in the System folder.

The installation Error is happening in "InstallFinalize" Action (writing registry values).

The same setup is getting installed successfully in all the other 32 and 64 bit system.

Please help me in finding out a workaround and fix for the issue.

Re: Error 1402: Could not Open Key - Windows Server 2008 (non R2) 64 Bit System

Hi try to launch the setup.exe with administrator rights if not help full try to update the system.

if the dll is an 32 bit dll and trying to register in 64 bit registry then certenly you will get an issue.
