Unable to access audacity

Reactivating audacity
I installed “Audacity” on to my computer (vista operating program) and all went well. I came back a while later to reopen audacity and I keep getting an error window “value of HKCU/software/audacity/audacity/****** (several different values each time I attempt this) error 5:access denied”.
Has anyone esle had this problem and /or how do I fix this so I can use this program??

(I think you posted to the wrong forum).


I haven’t used Audacity under Vista, however, the beta versions are reputed to no longer use the registry. Try downloading a beta version here:


I hope this helps.
