SYMPTOMS

You may be unable to install a program that tries to register extensions under the IQueryForm registry entry in Windows Server 2008 or in Windows Vista. Or, the installation may be completed, and the program may not work as expected.

Note A program that will use the IQueryForm interface must register extensions under the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8A23E65E-31C2-11d0-891C-00A024AB2DBB}\Forms
For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms677262(VS.85).aspx
For example, assume that a program tries to register its Class ID for Active Directory Users and Computers search extension. In this case, you receive an "Access Denied" error in the program log.

Note The exact error message that is reported by the program log varies, depending on the specific program.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the
Forms
registry key is protected by the Windows Resource Protection (WRP) feature. The Administrators group does not have permissions to modify the
Forms
registry key. By default, only the TrustedInstaller has Full Control permissions to this registry key in Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, you must take ownership of the
Forms
registry key as an administrator. To do this, follow these steps.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
