I've been trying to run scannow and, like many others, although I have the disk I still get asked for it. I suspect its my registry and I've seen instructions elsewhere but, no one that I can see has actually typed out each of the reg entries in full so that people like me don't mess it up. I plan on backing them up, I'd just rather get it right the first time.
These are my entries:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Setup---Sourcepath= C:\\DOCUME~1\\****\\LOCALS~1\\Temp\\SETUP\\"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Setup---Installation Sources =C:\ServicePackFiles\i386 C:\EMEDIAPROGRAMFILES\APROGRAMS\MIDI YOKE D:\
(I'm no longer running MIDI YOKE)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion ---Sourcepath=D:\\I386

Would someone show me what they should look like and let me know if its just these three.

Thanks d4l3d

I guess I'm not making myself clear. I'm not trying to remove anything from the registry. I have a registry cleaner that I use regularly. These items that I've posted belong. I'm asking for someone to show me what these registry entries would look like corrected to allow scannow to accept the CD.

If you want the path to the CD, you need to set the value to your CD-ROM. If you have the I386 folder on the hard drive, set it to that.
If your CD-ROM is D: then set it to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup
SourcePath
Value data
D:\
Here is a guide that may help you.
Scannow sfc

Thanks Augie65,

That was one of several references I looked at. Being skittish about the registry I wanted to be extra sure I understood. So they should read:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Setup---Sourcepath = D:\

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Setup---Installation Sources = D:\

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion ---Sourcepath = D:\

Then, is the above correct, do I have them all and do I need to change value data back or change value data to anything else?
