Error when installing sneak preview NW04S Full Java

Hi all,

I hope someone can help me with this problem I'm having with installing NW04S sneak preview. After stating where the enchrypt zip archive is, I receive the following message in the sapinst log:

Error 5 (Access is denied) in execution of a 'RegOpenKeyEx' function, line (69), with parameter (SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Disk).

The subkey

'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Disk' does not exist on the 'localhost' host.

Now; I can clearly see in the registry that the key is there, and I've killed my F-secure anti virus. I'm logged in with Administrator rights, I use Java 1.4.2_09 with JAVA_HOME and path set accordingly.

Has anyone else came across the same error and if so; how did you solve it?

I've seen some similar discussions regarding the ABAP build but didn't find a solution reading those posts either.

Thank you all for any input, and I will of course reward helpful answers!

Kind regards,
