Q10080 Using iDSC 1816 with Windows 7

Tags: Help, iDSC, Windows 7, UAC, calibrate, registry

Applies to: iDSC 1816, Windows 7

I receive the error "Calibrate registry write key is invalid" when running a PC program with iDSC 1816 under Windows 7. How can I fix the problem?

One or both of the following might be the cause of the problem:

  • The user did not run the PC program as an administrator.
    • Solution - Right-click on PC program and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The User Account Control, or UAC, is on by default.
    • Solution - Turn off UAC by going to Control Panel | User Accounts | Change User Account Control settings. Push the slider all the way to the bottom and save the change. Reboot the PC.
