3. Create a file called reset.cmd with Notepad. Copy the text below into the file reset.cmd and run reset.cmd from an account with administrative privileges:

Windows XP Home Edition:

cd /d "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %windir%\*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f

Better. Dont be sneaky though, all the blue text is a hyperlink to your site. Edited. Also let me remind you its illegal to host subinacl.exe on your own site, its microsoft copyrighted software. This resolution also works for older service packs like SP2 which give the same error.

Stop posting fake signatures and links t your site. Infracted and Editied. Check the rules.

Do not manually post "fake" signatures in your posts. Instead, you may create a sitewide signature within the user control panel. Posts must contain actual content and substance and cannot simply be external links.

Do not spam, advertise, plug your website, or engage in any other type of self promotion. To encourage open, unbiased (incentive-free) discussion, it is prohibited to refer to sites you own or are affiliated with

No affiliate links are permitted anywhere within DaniWeb (except within forum signatures). Self-promotion links are permitted within forum signatures provided they do not contradict with any other sitewide rules, such as inappropriate language or content.

It is a fake signature because you manually added it to the post instead of setting it as a signiture in your user control panel.

The post i approved via pm, and the post you actually posted were two different things. One had repeated links to your site, the other didnt. The exact text of the PM i approved was:

Correct “Access Denied” Error While Installing Windows XP SP3 Release Candidate 2

While installing Windows XP SP3, you receive the following error:

"Windows XP Service Pack 3 installation failed. - Access is denied"

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Resolution:

1. Backup the Registry
2. If subinacl.exe is not installed, download and install subinacl.exe.
3. Create a file called reset.cmd with Notepad. Copy the text below into the file reset.cmd and run reset.cmd from an account with administrative privileges:

Windows XP Home Edition:

cd /d "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %windir%\*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f

That was fine, what you actually went and posted was not. The now-edited version is fine too.
