When I run this application on my new Windows 7 system, the call to RegOpenKey returns 5 (access denied). Tuesday, October 26, 2010 2:09 AM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote Yes, it is amazing. If I change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to HKEY_CURRENT_USER it works fine. [I'm not making both RegOpenKeyEx and RegCreateKeyEx calls, I just put both of them in to let you know it fails] What's winerror.h 0x800703f5 #define ERROR_CANTWRITE The configuration registry key could not be written.

This is the call made by the startup form during form load and the sources to the called function. All I did was use RegOpenKeyEx() which has a parameter for a mask that specifies the desired access rights. See link.. I need to understand why the behavior is different on Windows 7.     Ken Wednesday, December 16, 2009 10:10 PM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote For the last

Claiming that the model is the first model of its kind Is there an elegant way to prove a function is linear?

Did any of you even bother to check the error code? Glad to see that someone gets it! It calls the same function in the module. Monday, August 30, 2010 4:31 PM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote I still find it amazing to see all of the odd ways that people go at this.

Thanks for the great New Years present. The same function call on XP and Vista returns 0 (SUCCESS).     Ken Tuesday, December 15, 2009 5:56 PM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote hmm, why are you Wow6432Node is the 32 bit section of the registry. –David Heffernan Dec 4 '15 at 14:56 | show 1 more comment active oldest votes Know someone who can answer?

That seemed to do the trick. I have found nothing stating this function call that worked on XP and Vista should now not work on Windows 7. The problem is the behavior is different on Windows 7. The last post was a full application that demonstrates the problem.

The application install creates the registry entry with read access for all users. ret = RegCloseKey(lpHKey) End If End Function Thursday, December 17, 2009 5:26 PM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote Hello Ken: I am pretty sorry to say this, but The calls to msgbox were added by me to help diagnose the problem. I am running both IDE and .exe from Administrative privilege.

I can understand adding a new return code since Windows 7 changed the access levels of this registry tree, but why change the meaning of an existing return value instead of

To see if I could better understand the problem, I tried many unacceptable solutions including manually setting full control for all users, running the application as administrator and even turning off Tuesday, December 15, 2009 4:09 PM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote Hi,RegOpenKey() Function: Note  This function is provided only for compatibility with 16-bit versions of Windows. So how to solve the Windows error codes forever, like ERROR_CANTWRITE 1013 (0X3F5)? I will download the process monitor you reference and see if I can find anything further.

I was trying my program on HKLM\Software\MyKey and it was directing to 64 bit key but change was rejected so i decided to edit the 64bit key as test and then If string contains Null , Null is returned. I'm having the same problem, the only thing that works so far is to run Visual Studio as Administrator -- and I've tried just about everything in this long thread! Nothing I read suggested this solution.

The error never caused any problems until Windows 7, and has caused a lot of grief with my own programs. I'm sorry to say that I am probably the original source for that incorrect declare above, since the entire library matches mine word-for-word and has been up on my site for I familiar to this problem, just replace RegOpenKeyEx function with RegCreateKeyEx (declaring 2 additional params). Please help.

If your application is 32bit, then the registry entry will be redirected.  More information http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384232(VS.85).aspx You can also use the Process monitor to get where your application is trying to access. It works correctly on XP and Vista.

Can my employer see what I do on the internet when I am connected to the company network? Any help would be greatly appreciated.     Ken The application makes the following call:   Path = RegGetValue(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE&, "Software\EasySoft\MSL51", "ShareFolder") The sources for the function call: Declare Function RegCloseKey& Lib "advapi32.dll"

Note that I don't mean the optional add-on Windows XP mode, I mean right-click the shortcut, select 'compatibility', tick "Run this program in compatiblity mode for" and I think I went When i run this code from IDE, it succeeds but fails when executed from .exe and returns 5(ERROR_CANTWRITE). The problem is not with the function call or the problem would exist on XP and Vista as well. I built this small application.

The function call as currently coded works correctly on XP and Vista. ErrorCo.de is built with love by the devs at FireGiant. Numeric expression indicating how many characters to return.
