0x800405a6 error

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone has a better answer than "check the documentation for a
brief description of something that isn't the problem" <g>

I have an app that runs just fine in development on my XP machine, but when
I move it to others (running 2KPro), I get the above error. All that help
tells me about it is that I'm not logged onto that machine, which is not
correct. I've had this happen on three different machines logged in as an
administrator as well as a more typical user. Any pointers?

TIA,

John

Found it. Just post a question and you'll find the answer, right?

Quote:

This problem is caused by the absolute path to the shell being in the
registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell

Modifying this registry entry so that it only contains the string
'explorer.exe' should fix the problem. I hope you haven't reinstalled
yet.

Thanks! Robert Gruen
