The Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 operating system has one or more write-protected files registered for deleting or renaming. This is the cause of the behavior described above and cannot be influenced by the relevant software.
If the message described above appears after installing the software even though you have already rebooted your PC, we recommend taking the following remedial steps.
||Open the Registry editor (in Windows XP, for example) with "Start > Run..." and then enter "regedit". Check whether the value "PendingFileRenameOperations" is in the path
- "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager "
||If the value is there, start the "Regedt32.exe" program with the menu "Start > Run...". Then reopen the path
- "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager"
to obtain the following view:
||In the right window double-click the value "PendingFileRenameOperations" to open the editor for multiple character strings:
The entries in this editor (Fig. 03) are to be interpreted as follows: Windows generates two lines for each file concerned.
If the second of the two lines is empty, it means that the file has been registered to be deleted. In this example file 1031.MST in the directory
would be deleted via the Windows Explorer.
If there is an entry in the second of the two lines, that is the new name for the file in line 1. In this example the file TBM9C.tmp in the directory
would be renamed through the Windows Explorer.
The above mentioned files and paths to be deleted are just an example. Here you delete the paths and files that are displayed in the editor on your computer.
||After completing the steps described above you delete the Registry value
in the Registry code "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\ ".
Now you can install more programs without having to restart the computer again.
||If it is not possible to delete or rename the files designated in Step 3, then delete the Registry code "PendingFileRenameOperations" with the pop-menu (right-click).|
Then install STEP 7 without restarting the PC beforehand (the code is there again after a restart).
In general, no warranty can be given for direct changes in the Registry database, because this is entirely the responsibility of the user. In any event, you are advised to make a backup of the registry before undertaking the actions described here. Furthermore, these settings are computer-specific. This means that when you copy the project to another computer, you must make the settings again.
If the recommendations above (Points 1 to 4) do not help with HP Notebooks (NC6120, for example) with Windows XP, we recommend updating the WLAN driver or removing the HP Wireless Wizard from the Registry.
