    Hello everyone :)

    I have recently purchased Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate for my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

    But as soon as it starts installing after choosing install directory, it gives me the error 1603, meaning a fatal error upon installation. The installer doesnt even make it through the first part of the installation (It tries to install the report tool first).

    I tried to find out what caused this issue, and I nailed it down to the error below.

    Error 1402. Could not open key: UNKNOWN\Components\DA42BC89BF25F5BD0AF18C3B9B1A1EE8\000021599B0090400000000000F01FEC.  System error 5.  Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.
    I have experienced the same issue a while ago when installing Adobe Premiere Pro when it was installing VC Redist files. So, I tried to go into regedit, find the key and try to delete it. When I find it and click on it, it gives me the access denied box, even tho I have full Administrator access and have disabled UAC.

    So, instead I found out that I could use PSExec (An application that comes packaged with PSTools) and used that with the -s argument and -i argument to run regedit, so I had full system rights over Regedit. This is where the next problem comes. Since the keys are only accessible by my primary account with administrator rights, then it is not possible for the system account to view the folder in any way! As a last resort, I used subinacl to fix the permissions, but it does not seem to fix all of the keys, as it still gives som errors when fixing the keys.

    So any help is really appreciated, and I hope I do not need to reformat my pc. Thank you :)
