Cadzow 2000 Startup Errors — Unable to Intialize Registry
When launching Cadzow 2000 you may receive the following error:
This occurs on Windows Vista/2008/7 systems if you have run a version of Access other than Access 97, or installed a service pack or update for Office 2000 or Access 2000 or later. Whenever Access 97 or above runs, it resets certain parameters in the registry, and this will be done each time you run different versions of Access. Access 2000 and later use Windows Installer, which runs at a privileged level, but Access 97 runs with the privileges of the user, which are restricted in Vista/7 due to User Account Control, even if the user is a local administrator, and thus cannot make the necessary changes. This also happens on Windows 2000/XP systems where the user is not a local administrator.
The solutions are (in order of preference):
Update Registry Permissions with Script
For Network Administrators: The script can update the registry permissions on a remote system with the command FixAcc97RegistryPerms WORKSTATION, where WORKSTATION is the name of the remote system (without the leading \\). The user must be an administrator of the remote system and the remote system must have the Remote Registry service running.
Manually Update Registry Permissions
Manually Update Permissions on Entire Classes Hive
Grant Administrator Privileges
(This option is not particularly recommended.)
