[SOLVED]Help fixing registry error in windows 7

Post Mon Jan 11, 2010 1:04 am

Hi guys,

I get the following error in blender's console when I try to launch Yafaray:
Code: Select all
Compiled with Python version 2.6.2.
Checking for installed Python... got it!
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Blender Foundation\Blender\.blender\scripts\yafar
ay_ui.py", line 42, in <module>
    regKey = _winreg.OpenKey(_winreg.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, 'Software\\YafRay Team\
\YafaRay')
WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied

If I check in regedit the key is not there but in another place (Wow6432Node) and besides it indeed seems to be inaccessible.

I remember something sometime ago about fixing the registry by hand but I couldn't find it, so I'd like to know if anyone else has run into similar issues and ask how they fixed them.

regards.

It was just a matter of right clicking on the registry key, selecting "permissions" and granting full control to my user ;)
This article helped me:
