When installing Avisynth 2.56 or 2.56a (WinXP SP2, Russian) I get error message 'Couldn't write to registry' at about 10-15% of progress bar. The installer stops after creating plugin folder with 2 dll's and a .avsi file inside and writes to registry values for folders location in Avisynth entry. As I can guess some system entries are touched during installation but have no idea which ones to check for read/write permissions (I have admin rights on my PC).
Also tried disabling Norton 2005 real-time protection (useless). What other applications can be in conflict (there were no older Avisynth installations, no DVDRebuilder etc.)? Any ideas please? Thanks.

do you have admin privileges in your system, i.e, can you modify or create registry keys ?
did you tried to setup in Safe Mode ? restart the system ?
Might also want to check the permissions for the registry keys in question.
Which from a look at the NSIS script would be:
There are issues with the installer. It probably properly installed, irregardless of the error message. Run this:
It should show what you just installed.
If not, install 2.57r2, which fixed the installer (and is a later version, to boot).ICBM target coordinates:

Thank you all for the useful info. I suspected there was something wrong with the installer 'cause it's very rare when I can't install something. I'll try the newer version first.
V.2.57RC1 got installed without a problem, thanks again for your help.
