Can you take control of a key in the registry?

Posted: 07-25-2008, 08:41 PM
I'm running Vista Enterprise SP1 and am up to date with the updates. I have
office 2007 installed as well.

I installed the Community Clips for Office to generate some help videos. I
can't record becuase I do not have access to a particlular CLSID. I've tried
under 3 logons:
1. my logon id and I am a domain administrator and an administrator on the PC,
2. superuser, the account I added during Vista setup and the account I did
the install of CC for O and ran it for the first time, and
3. the built-in administrator, which I had never used before

Under all of the I get an error accessing a CLSID of 80040150, which is lack
of permission. I cannot access the sercurity permission of this under any of
the 3 logon ids. IF this was a folder on a network drive, I would just take
ownership and move on. IS there some way to do that with a key in the
registry?

IF not, is there something else I could do?

I am aware of the results of messing around with the registry. I always keep
a recent copy on hand, just in case....

I was talking about setting the security of the CLSID at the folder level as
you call it. For other CLSIDs, one or more if the 3 logon ids have
permissions for them. I'm just looking for a way to get access to this one.
And maybe some idea of why this would happen.

Sure. Start regedit with Administrator privileges by doing Start>Search
box>type: regedit. When regedit appears in the Results above, right-click
on it and choose "Run as Administrator".

Navigate to the key you want and right-click on it to change permissions.
You might want to simply add "Everyone" to the groups and give full
permissions to the key. Start at the top key and you'll see where you can
have everything below it inherit the parent permissions of that key.

I'm aware of subinacl but it says it is for Windows 2000 and XP with no
mention of Vista. Does such a tool exist for Vista?

I tried what Malke said before I started the thread. I tried this under all
three logins and the results were the same. It changes all except the ones
that the administrator does not have access to.

Bettie,

Read over this page and you should be able to solve your problem after you
run the SubInACL tool.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. There is a bug in the newsgroup
and Microsoft had to get me a workaround so I could reply.

I ran subacls but it could not update the permission of several keys
including the one I knew about. I'm at a loss to understand how security got
set like this. Since manually setting permissions has not worked and subacls
did not work, any other suggestions?
