    VB6 on Windows XP Professional


    When attempting to select:

    Project;
    References;

    from within a VB project I get the message;

    "Error accessing the system registry"

    Anybody have any ideas on how to resolve this?

    There is a problem key in the hive
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib

    If are adventurous, you can run RegMon from www.sysinternals.com
    in the background while opening the Project\References Applet.
    The last key encountered before the error message is your clue to
    where the trouble is.

    You will need to edit the registry to fix the
    problem. You can look at the neighboring keys to get an idea of
    what each typelib subkey collection SHOULD look like. More than
    likely you will see a problem within seconds or a couple of minutes.

    Barring the above, check the google archive and/OR the MS Knowledge
    Base. This is not serious trouble for your system as a whole, but only a
    VB annoyance.

    hth,
