VMware View Composer 2.7 Upgrade Registry Key Permission Error

Upgrading VMware View Composer to version 2.7 produces a Registry Key Permissions Error

I came across this error today while trying to upgrade VMware View 4.6 to a VMware View 5 installation.

The error appeared after upgrading the View Connection server to version 5, and I had just began to upgrade the View Composer Server to 2.7.

Searching through the VMware Knowledge Base, I found an article that doesn’t speak directly at VMware View, but does apply to VMware Products.

This is the error I received:

VMware View Composer 2.7 Upgrade Error

Following this KB article from VMware helped to fix the problem http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1029282
