    Installer unable to write to registry

    I'm trying to install an older version of MYOB accounting software, which I was previously able to install on Win7 Pro by running the installer in Windows XP (SP3) compatibility mode, using an account with administrator privileges.

    I'm running Win10 Pro 64b with UAC turned off, using an account with administrator rights, running the installer in XP SP3 mode with administrator rights & I get the following error.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Why not try a newer version. All new versions of this software have a free trial period.

    Hi John,

    I looked at upgrading, but the current version fit's my needs (does all that I need it to do) & couldn't justify the cost for new "bells & whistles" that I won't use.

    If you still have an issue with running the software afterwards, let us know.

    Solved... Did a clean install of Win7 Pro, installed MYOB 11, then upgraded to Win10 Pro & all works fine.

    A fine example of Microsloth making Windows more secure & unusable for users & forcing them into expensive upgrdes
