Can't write to registry you may lack necessary rights
« on: February 25, 2019, 09:37:10 AM »
Newbie Here!

When I am running thro the initial setup and trying to add HFS to the context menu  I get:-
Can't write to registry you may lack necessary rights.

Could someone tell me which registry key this refers to?

Many Thanks

welcome!
it's not truly necessary, and you may save options to file instead of registry.
Instead, to give the missing rights he's talking about, you should right click on HFS.exe and click "run as administrator".

The "run as administrator" solved my problem.

Many thanks & thanks for the welcome
