View Full Version : HELP!Touble Installing Lightwave v9

12-19-2006, 06:37 PM
When I try to install Lightwave v9 I get this message saying, "you do not have the required privileges to continue the installation. Please have your system administrator install this software". Then is says in brackets, "couldn't get write access to the 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.srf' regisrty key".

I'm using Windows XP home edition, and I am the system administrator.

If i click OK when the message appears it aborts the installation. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

I've seen this issue mentioned a few times. Here (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54522&highlight=privileges+install) is the only thread where I've seen someone successfully fix it. If that doesn't work I would give tech support a call (or email). And please reply here if you get it fixed so others are in the know.

I have finally worked it out. I had to change the permission options in registry edit. Thanks a lot iconoclasty! Linking me to the other thread fixed my problems. Thankyou!

No problem. That's what the :lwicon: community is all about.
