Needing Take ownership in Hungarian

I had to install a Hungarian language Windows 7 and my Take ownership (earlier working perfectly under English Windows 10) stopped working. I saw in this forum that you may happen to help me to find a Hungarian variant for Take ownership.
Please help!

Can you literally take ownership of everything and still have Windows work correctly?

No. If you take ownership of the Windows C: drive, it will cause Windows to become unstable. You'll most likely end up having to reinstall Windows if you do.

I have never thought of taking ownership of the whole C: drive, only some folders under Documents and Settings. So earlier my small interventions did not cause any trouble.

My wants would be to have permissions changed in REGEDIT so that I can easily tweak features. BUT.... now that I am getting quite good at buzzing around the registry for some things I guess it less of a hassle these days.

Hello Pimen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Here's a Hungarian version below of the .reg file to add Take Ownership for that PC. The one in the tutorial will only work in an English Windows.

Hello Brink and other Seven Forums.
You are very helpful. Sorry, but this solution cannot not work. The error messge says (in my translation from Hungarian):Invalid syntax. The ’l’ value is not permitted with switch ’/d’. My PC-knowledge is not enough to understand what it means, but it may helpfully contribute to your knowledge. Perhaps I ought to have detached "Take ownership" from the right click menu prior trying to apply the Hungarian version. But don't bother yourself, my problem is really not of great importance.
Thanks for paying attention.

No worries. Merging the Hungarian .reg file will replace the old one without having to remove it first.

I have updated the Hungarian .reg file above. Please try the new version. It should work for you now.
