Access denied while installing XP SP2

By gfeucht ·
My PC initially came with XP Home but was upgraded to XP Pro before it was assigned to me. I created a new local user profile with full administrator rights and added the permissions by editing the registry as Microsoft support site advised but I still get the same exact error. Any ideas?

How exactly did you upgrade XP Home to XP Pro? Did you buy the updated copy via the OEM license agreement and re-install it?

WinInfo had a large article on this:

The error was:
#E008 Setting registry value HKCR\Interface\{00000501-0000-0010-8000-00AA006D2EA4}\TypeLib\Version
#E033 Error 5: Access is denied.
