Error 1406

Question

Hey there I am in the process of reinstalling emc8 and i get "installation failure 1406 - Could not write to key .... please check that you have sufficient access to that key"

 

I am running Windows XP. I am the admin on the computer. I have gone through the registry to the exact key that the error states (My Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4123e712-5c64-43b8-ac3b-d677c1e36c9e}\ProgID) and "Everyone" is listed as the available users, and it has full permission.

 

Any Help would be great. I would like to use emc8 someday!!

The error can often occurs because of some system level privileges on your computer. The error can also occur if the installation is not created correctly.
