signed up @ 7-forums to get pointers on this - a lot of googling over the past two days have lead to different threads here - seems like a great community.
so, i'm migrating a 32 bit software environment to 64 bit, and have not grown any more fond of bill OR steve than i used to be. the combo of the two is the pits - MSI-installers for quicktime / iTunes.
anyway - here's the current thing i'm trying to resolve: while installing yet another app, i the installer throws an error message: "could not open key: \UNKNOWN\component\xxxxxxxxxxxxxx214835\
now - this is a new feature in 7, never saw it in XP. ok, so the registry key has permissions that are not allowing access for the installer to alter it. i ran into this a few times already and was able to resolve by taking ownership / altering the permissions.
but on this round - THERE IS NO SUCH KEY! so what permission is being denied? how to get past this?
cheers in advance!
