    Another good alternative is Resplendence Registrar Registry Manager (not free) but has excellent features such as undo history and bookmarks.

    There is a Lite Free Version Here:

    O&O RegEditor does not mention Windows 8 or 10 Compatibility (it will probably work fine). A great alternative is Resplendence Registrar Registry Manager for Windows XP through Windows 10. It's not free but has excellent features such as undo history and bookmarks. I've been using it for years. There is also a free version with less features for home use Here. Here are some more alternatives. Registry Workshop also claims Windows 10 comparability (also not free).

    I had same problem 10586.11. Did an in-place-upgrade and it fixed the issue.

    Was yours caused by this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Upgrade

    Probably because the in-place upgrade replaced that key as you no longer came from 10240 but 10586.

    As someone mentioned on the Microsoft forums:

    "While Microsoft does his homework to fix regedit we can use the free Nirsoft 'RegScanner' tool for searching.It is much more useful than regedit to search, and to make changes it opens the specified key with 'Regedit'."

    It could be a permissions issue.

    open Windows Explorer
    Click on c: drive
    go to Windows folder
    scroll down until you find regedit.exe
    right click and select properties
    go to security tab
    in the user name windows click on your current account
    in the window below you should see tick marks. Mine only shows ticks for read & execute and read which seems wrong to me.
    You could try ticking full control and see if that helps.

    For those who had 10240 installed before 10586, the regedit.exe is in C:\Windows.old\WINDOWS.

    Did they move it and not install it to c:\windows?

    It's in C:\Windows, the C:\Windows.old is to get the 10240 RTM version as the 10586 version is buggy.
