Psexec - problem run regedit.exe under windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • i just made some stupid things with a registry key under CLSID (win 8.1 32bit):

    - remove all permission for that key

    - set owner to "system"

    .=>result when open that key:

    "an error preventing this key being opened.

    Details: Access is denied."  and then i can not change owner back admin any more.


    i try using psexec to run regedit as system accont: 

    psexec -i -d -s c:\windows\regedit.exe

    and then change owner/ permission back to default but get error: "unable to save permissions on key..access is denied "

    I try test same things on windows 7, then using psexec and change owner from "system" back "admin", grant permission successfully

    i am not sure this is psexec or win 8.1 problems . some one can help me?. sory for my bad english
