    Hi again,

    Copy that most of your icons are gone and the program they are linked to will not run/open.

    You would need to download and decompress two (2) registry entries that would add a few corrections and new information. They are:
    1. xp linkfile_fix.reg; and
    2. xp_exe_fix.reg

    You must have either WinRAR or WinZip to decompress the zip files to usable .reg files.

    Soon as downloaded and decompressed, you simply double click or right click and select/allow to merge to your existing registry. At some point, Windows will ask how to run/open the 2 .reg files. Select Browse/Choose a Program and point to your C:\Windows\regedit.exe. This should be done to both the .reg files. When asked "Do you want to merge..." pls answer YES.

    You may need to reboot and/or repeat the registry merge more than once.

    If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, you may need to do a clean/fresh install.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FIXYA.

    For some reason the initial links do not work, below are the verified correct links.
    1. xp linkfile_fix.reg; and
    2. xp_exe_fix.reg

    Hi Billy,

    Re - error message Windows can't open this file, this is to be expected. But it also ask you how do you want to open this file. As earlier posted, tell Windows to use and point to your C:\Windows\regedit.exe
    I think thereafter your system will work.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Feb 22, 2008

    and Hello again Billy,

    A client brought a Sony Vaio laptop with identical problems.

    As posted download and save in your desktop xp linkfile_fix.reg; and

    Double click on any of the 2 files,

    Windows will ask you what file to use to open these 2 files

    Choose regedit.exe inside C:\Windows

    Do the same for the other file and soon as merged to the registry, most links would be back and .exe would be executables.

    Good luck.

    When asked for the filename, rather than select from the list (if regedit.exe doesn't show, type "c:\windows\regedit.exe" less the quotes.

Get the following error message: Your registry

If you are installing this on Windows 7 or 8 you will have to contact Microsoft directly. You can use Microsoft Technet or knowledge base to try to find a solution but I have found a bunch of this same error on their site and it appears to be a major problem.
I do know that the registry error is often a mistake and the program may run correctly after you reboot. This is a serious issue with Window 7.

Note: The following steps involve modification of registry key values, which may corrupt your Windows if done incorrectly. Backup registry first before performing the workaround.
  1. Close all Microsoft Office programs.
  2. Click on Start button, then click on Run.
  3. Type "regedit" (without quotes) in the Run text box, and click OK or press Enter.
  4. Locate and then click the following subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration
    Inside, you will find another subkey that resembles the following subkey:
    Tip: For user with 64-bit (x64) Windows, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\12.0 instead.
  5. Optional: Backup this registry branch by exporting the Registration subkey to a file, just in case the new product key does not work and you have to restore back the old product key. To export the registry, right click on the Registration subkey and click on Export, and follow the on-screen prompt to enter a file name for the registry file and choose a location to store it.
  6. Under the Registration subkey, there may be several Globally Unique Identifiers (GUID) subkey that contain a combination of alphanumeric characters. Each GUID is specific to a program that is installed on your computer. If you find additional subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, then click and open each GUID subkey to view and identify the Office product version by the ProductName registry entry in the right pane. For example:
    ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
  7. After you find the GUID subkey that contains your Office product or program which you want to remove the existing product license key or registration details, delete the following registry entries by right clicking on the registry entry in the GUID subkey, click Delete, and then click Yes: • DigitalProductID
    • ProductID
  8. Exit Registry Editor.
  9. Run or open an Office application program, such as Microsoft Word or Excel or Outlook. Office 2007 will prompt you to enter a new 25-character product key.
  10. Type in the valid and genuine product key, and then click OK.
  11. Then when prompted to choose your preferred type of Microsoft Office 2007 installation, press on "Install Now".
  12. Microsoft Office 2007 will be updated with new product CD key or volume license key, and ready for activation (if it's a non-VLK serial) or use.
Note: If you're having problem with your new Office 2007 product key, simply double click on the backup registry .reg file created at the optional step above to restore the registry settings of the Registration subkey so that the original value can be imported back to the registry.

This sucks!

  1. Close all Office programs.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  3. Locate and then click the following subkey, depending on your version of Windows and of Office:

    32-bit versions 2007 Office system
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration

    Office 2003
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Registration

    Office XP
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Registration64-bit versions 2007 Office system

    Office 2003

    Office XP
  4. Export the Registration subkey.

    You can make a backup of the values under the Registration subkey if the new product key does not work. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Right-click the Registration subkey, and then click Export.
    2. In the Save in list, select a location to save the registration entries.
    3. In the File name box, type a name for the .reg file that you want to export, and then click Save.

    Note In steps 4a through 4c, you created a backup of the Registration subkey. You can restore the Registry settings of the Registration subkey by double-clicking the .reg file that you saved in step 4c. The contents of the .reg file are automatically exported to the Registry.
  5. Under the Registration subkey, there may be several Globally Unique Identifiers (GUID) that contain a combination of alphanumeric characters. Each GUID is specific to a program that is installed on your computer.

    Click a GUID. Then, view the version of Office that is listed in the right pane for the Productname registry entry. After you find the GUID that contains the version of your Office program, follow these steps:
    1. Right-click the DigitalProductID registry entry, click Delete, and then click Yes.
    2. Right-click the ProductID registry entry, click Delete, and then click Yes.

      For more information about how to identify the correct GUID for the version of the Office suite or program that you have installed on your computer, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 928516 ( ) Description of the numbering scheme for product code GUIDs in 2007 Office suites and programs 832672 ( ) Description of numbering scheme for product code GUIDs in Office 2003 302663 ( ) Description of the numbering scheme for product code GUIDs for Office XP programs
  6. Close Registry Editor.
  7. Open an Office program, such as Microsoft Word. When you receive a message that prompts you for the product key, type the correct product key, and then click OK.

Cnnot open PrintMaster 17

Printmaster Platinum downloaded and installed reasonably well on my Gateway 6mb RAM 500MG HDD running Vista Home Premium.  The 26.5MB patch seemed to install okay.  In trying  to open the app I got the folloiwing:  "Error opening HKLM with ALL ACCESS - setting up registry"  I uninstalled--completely-- and the reinstall worked the same way with the same Error Message. The install followed the instructions that came with the patch via msconfig.  I can get the app to run with a lot of time-consuming effort using Task Manager.  Once opened it seems to work fine. It might be a good idea to offer a definition for HKLM, which is to say IHABT.  Oh, yeah, I HAD A ***** OF A TIME.
Presumably this is a registry entry or dll.  Please shed some light on this.  I have used this program for years and have a  host of saved projects.  PrintMaster Gold worked much better but I paid a bunch of money for Platinum (knowing full well  it was an older edition).

I am still having problems with my computer. I removed Adobe Premiere Elements 2 and reinstalled it. It is still freezing when I try to burn media to a dvd. the computer is also freezing at various times...

Sounds like you need a little should maybe try a system degfrag......"programs", "accessories", system tools", "disk defragmenter". "analyze" first, then if it says you don't have to, then don't bother. If you do Defragment, note that it will take several hours - maybe run it overnight.
After that, you should try cleaning up your registry. Here's a link for a program I use, and it works pretty well to clean up missing links, and entries for old programs, etc. Just run the program, and delete all of the items it finds. there is an option to back up the registry beforehand which is a good idea:

Hopefully this sure won't hurt.
