Can't create registry key

Post by kenb44 »

Opened my version 1.2.2 today and received an error message...Can't create registry key "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_Browser_emulation" (error 5:acess denied).
Have never had an issue with this great program until today.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I had the same problem when I installed Version 1.2.2 on Windows 10 but after taking the action advised in this Forum Entry it no longer shows the warning.

As Nikolay suggested I ran as administrator and I did not get the error. I didn't mention that I now was running Windows 10 but didn't see that error earlier.
Anyway, thank you both for responding and solving the issue...or at least eliminated the error.
