OCLCPermissions shows Not Installed

Symptom
  • I ran OCLCPermissions (as administrator).  The top six lines say Not Installed instead of Read or Read-Write.  What do I do?

Applies to
  • OCLC Cataloging Label program
Resolution

The first thing we want to do is make sure all files and registry keys are present.  To do this:

  • Start the Label program as administrator; press shift+right click the Label program icon.  Choose Run as administrator.  If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.  After the Label program starts, close it; this step creates any missing files or registry keys.

 

Rerun (as administrator) OCLCPermissions.  Do the top six lines still say Not Installed?  If so, read on.

When this occurs (which is rare), permissions must be set manually.  Three file permissions and two registry key permissions must be changed.

The following process requires administrator Privileges.

File and folder permissions

  1. Navigate to C:.
  2. Right click the OCLCApps folder and select Properties.
  3. Click the Security tab.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Select Users in the Group or user names list.
  6. Click Allow for full control.
  7. OK out.

 

There are two files in the C:\Windows folder that start with MKDE that need to be changed:
C:\Windows\MKDEMSG.LOG 
C:\Windows\MKDEWE.TRN

For each of these files:

  1. Right click the MKDE file and select Properties.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Select Users in the Group or user names list.
  5. Click Allow for full control.
  6. OK out.

Registry permissions; open Regedit

 

If 64-bit Windows, the two keys are
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Btrieve Technologies
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\OCLC
Give each key above full control.

 

If 32-bit Windows, the two keys are
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Btrieve Technologies
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OCLC
Give each key above full control.
