There is a registry permission issue on your Vista PC that prevents certain SEO Studio components from working correctly. Please follow the instructions below to allow permission to the registry before reinstalling SEO Studio.

Step 1) Download the Subinacl.msi program from Microsoft's website:


Step 2) Copy the following text in a .bat or . cmd file and run it with administrative credentials. It may take a while to finish. You will get a "Press any key to continue" message once it completes:

Note: You can download this bat file in a zipped format from our server http://www.trendmx.com/SEOProjectUploads/reg_sbubinacl.zip to save some time.

@echo off
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f
@Echo =========================
@Echo Finished.
@Echo =========================

Step 3) Reinstal SEO Studio, you should not see any Activex errors after starting up SEO Studio.
