disable windows xp file protection

By pmwbomba ·
Hi? am a support technician for a company that installs Telephone call logging software.
Recently I tried to install the software on a clients computer running win xp. But as soon as I tried to run set up and replace *.dll and *.ocx files, Windows was unable to register them in the registry. when I checked the event viewer, it showed that windows file protection had detected file of an older version being copied, and had stopped that. We dont have an updated installation pack cozz the company that used to provide us with the sofware (we resell the software) closed shop recently.

Please help me, how can I disable windows file protection in Win xp so that I can run setup of older *.dll and *.ocx files???

Copy the dll and ocx files into the same folder as the program rather than c:\windows. It should still work from there.

also possibly change the registry values of that older program to give sufficent rights. use regedt32 and check the Permissions on the registry key(s)
