    Permission to execute Reg Entry (Home Premium)

    I get an error message access denied.

    What do I need to do to merge an entry?

    Here's the entry

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInternetShortcutshellOpenSCinIE_w ith_BAT]
    @="Open in &IE with BAT-VBS"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInternetShortcutshellOpenSCinIE_w ith_BATcommand]
    @=""c:winappscomminternetutilsopenSCinIEOpenSCinIE .bat" """

    (created by Jefferson Scher)

    I had asked Jefferson if this would work in Vista but he was unable to verify either way.

    Regards,

    Take ownership of the registry keys. See Edit | Permissions in the registry editor.

    Joe:

    Thanks, that was it.

    It took me a couple tries to get the steps all right. Kept not doing one of the steps I suppose.

    Good thing I'm the only user on this PC!

    Cuck,
    One question, what does this HACK do for you?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave:

    That one's easy:

    Jefferson wrote that as an answer to wanting to open a web shortcut in other than your default browser. There's the twin to this one so that you can have either Firefox or IE as the default and be able to open shortcuts with the other.

    This came up first for me when, having Firefox as my default, various sites required IE to open.

    Regards,
    Chuck

    <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15> Dave:

    Also, as an aside:

    I understand Vista's / your desire to keep everything secure. This is a good thing, especially in a commercial environment where iinadvertent changes or additions or deletions from a system can wreak havoc.

    But I am the only person that ever touches this PC -- at all.

    So I do understand that learning to properly back up (registry / system) is a good thing as well. We all know that I have been the victim of not paying heed to that.

    But, that precaution in place, what does it hurt / matter for me to experiment or try something "outside the box" if you will? I plead to being a bit over-zealous at times. At the same time, I do think that some good can and has come from a few of these experimentations.

    I also understand, Dave, that I have to try to be a bit more methodical in my approach, which would lessen my presence on this board a bit. <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15> I'm workin' on it.

    Regards,
    Chuck
