Registry path is invalid

This question is answered

I'm trying to create a simple registry change, just turning on the screen saver.  I modeled the procedure after another Set Registry Value procedure that works fine.  When I hit Save or Save and Close the first time, the line icon turns blue and appears fine.  Then when I hit Save and Close to move on, I'm back to a yellow icon and a red exclamation point that says "The registry path is invalid."  The path I am trying to use is: HKEY_CURRENT_USERS\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaveActive (then, of course, 1 in the data to write and REG-SZ for the type).  Am I fundamentally missing something?  Our VSA is pending a 6.1.0.0 to 6.2.0.0 update, if that is a factor.  Thanks in advance for any input!

  • I think it's "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" not "HKEY_CURRENT_USERS"...

  • Aaaargh.  Like I said...something fundamental.  I was pasting from an unrelated post & didn't notice the misnaming.  Thanks zippo!

  • No worries. I think I can safely say that we've all "been there done that".   Big Smile
