[Archive] software installation problem

Message by Yingchao Meng:
When I launch SPIS. I always meet with this warning:
warning: could not open/creat prefs root node Software\JavaSoft\Prefs at root 0X80000002. Windows RegcreateKeyEx<…> return error code 5.
How can I deal with it?
Thanks a lot.

Dear Yingchao Meng,
Please try this work around:
1-Go into your Start Menu and type regedit into the search field.
2-Navigate to path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\JavaSoft
3-Right click on the JavaSoft folder and click on New -> Key
4-Name the new Key Prefs and everything should work.
