(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256986/ )Description of the Microsoft Windows registry
When you try to run the Sysinternals FileMon and RegMon utilities from inside the Microsoft SoftGrid Virtual Environment, you receive the following error message:
Error Loading FILEMON/REGMON: The system cannot find the file specified
Make sure that your account has the load driver and debug privileges and that Filemon/Regmon is not already running.
Version 6.07 and later versions of the FileMon and RegMon utilities use a service that is embedded into the executable file. Because the FileMon and RegMon utilities start in the Virtual Environment and the local Service Control Manager (Services.exe) cannot access the Virtual Environment, the FileMon and RegMon utilities do not start.
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
To work around this problem, use Process Monitor instead of the FileMon and the RegMon utilities. For more information about Process Monitor, visit the following Web site:
If you prefer to use the FileMon and the RegMon utilities, follow these steps.
