    Windows 10 Pro

    Cannot import .reg. Error opening the file.

    ...There may be a disk or file system error.

    Happens when double-clicking reg-file on the NAS-share, which is mapped as a network drive.
    User is a user with admin rights (membership of Administrators group), and it is the first and only user that was created while W10 was installed.

    So what I tried:
    Run regedit as Admin, importing, no-go.
    Placing reg-file on desktop and executing, OK.
    Accessing via UNC, OK.
    Log in as user Administrator, I can execute the reg-file from the NAS too.

    I read something about taking ownership, so I tried it on that specific key, but still no go from the user-acct.

    Though I don't quite understand, why if the key is owned by Group Administrators, I, as a part of that group, cannot exec a reg-file, especially only when a drive is mapped.
    The various variables here just don't "compute" for me...

    (if it helps, I cannot copy the .reg file from the NAS to the C-Drive directly, but have to copy to desktop first and then onto C:, with the prompt for admin permission.)

    Though this WAS working as I upgraded my machine from Win7 -> Win10 previously, and was working on upgraded Win10 too. This only started happening after new install.

    Any ideas what's going on here?
