Why doesn't WordPerfect 8 open for Windows 2000 users?

A. After you install a program as an Administrator, a user with restricted or even elevated rights can't always access some elements of the registry, which can prevent a program from running correctly. To resolve this situation, grant your WordPerfect 8 users Full Control over the Corel software key:

  1. Start a registry editor (regedt32.exe for Win2K, regedit.exe for Windows XP).
  3. From the Security menu, select Permissions.
  4. Select Users, and then select Full Control.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Close the registry editor.
