Windows 7: Adding Registry Key

This is quite an easy one actually. I note that you are trying to merge an entry into the HKLM branch of the registry. As this branch pertains to the whole machine, and not just an individual account, it can only be successfully merged from within an account with administrative privileges. Attempting to do so from a standard account will result in the error you have received.

In addition, the correct version to use is that as supplied by dexislegend123 in Post #3 above.

Correct - what I said in the first place - remove the double backslash.

TanyaC and dexislegend123,

Thank you and thank you, yes the single \ did the job.

This file is found on quite a few web sites & some list double \ & some single \. I looked at the text contents to make sure I was doing it correctly but never paid attention to the slashes.

Thank you both again.

And yes I did back up the Registry & also created a restore point.
