I am troubleshooting an installer problem where it's giving an error writing to a registry key. So when I use the Registry Editor (regedit) to create the same key under
I get the following error:
Cannot create key: Error writing to the registry
Looking at the permissions, administrators have full access and I am a member of that group. I can create entries in other areas in the registry.
When I try to take ownership, I see my name already listed. But then I get an error:
Unable to set new owner on Eventlog. Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.
I tried after a new reboot. I turned off my firewall (Comodo).
Why can't I create a new key when I am an admin and permissions indicate I have full control?
