Hey..

Every time i try to install a Program/Game in Windows Vista x64, i keep get a Visual C++ 2005 install Error, about a Reg key that's locked, i haven't seen that before now(the last 4 Months) and i cant complete the install's:sa::sa:

I got screenshots showing the error message's, but the first is in Danish, so i will try to translate as best as possible:

First picture:
Error 1402: The key: Unknown\Components\DA42BC89BF..... Could Not Be opened. Control you have sufficient acces to the key, or contact the support-Technician's..

Second Picture: Translation Not Needed;-)

Well that update/tool don't work for me:huh:..

and uninstalling and reinstalling don't solve the problem either:confused:..

The funny thing is that its only C++ 2005 x86 not x64 and not 2008 64/86 that have the problem:confused:..

P.s. i've found out that i had 2 identical versions of C++ 2005 SP0 installet:huh:..

Actually this is fixable. It's not easy, it's time consuming, but it's relatively safe to do so as long as you follow instructions exactly. I just spent the last three hours hacking my own registry and documenting every step and I've been able to boil it down into a working fix. But since this post is over a year old I don't think anyone cares. I'll post it over on the steam forums or on my website. -.-
