My O/S is Windows XP Home.
While installing a Symantec's retail CD, NIS 2004, I got an Error 1406 "Could not write value <registry key information>" so I could not install it.
After checking with Symantec I was told in order to fix the problem I needed to assign Full Control to the "Administrator" in the registry so that I can install the CD.
I opened the Registry Editor and I went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE* to assign permissions, in Permissions for SOFTWARE in the Security tab where it says Group or User names, all I found was a Group or User names "Everyone" and no "Administrators" or any other.
On my PC there is only one user account "Myname ( Computer Administrator)".
Does anyone know how can I add the user "Administrators (My Computer name\Administrators)" in the registry key above* and then assign permissions? Thank you
