In my firm, there is a group wide policy which, among other things, disables access to registry editor. My account is also on domain but is assigned the administrator group. Even then I cannot access the registry editor. I also know the password of the Administrator account on the system. I tried using gpedit (both with and without enabling LAN access) but access to registry was not configured in it meaning I had access to it.
Is there any way I can enable access to registry editor?
You may be a local admin but on the domain your rights could be different. The domain rights will override your rights on the PC. You can try to run as an administrator and see what you get but that might not be allowed either.
It sounds as though you do not have permission to access it. Are you trying to be naughty? Ask an administrator to let you have access to it . There shouldn't be any problem if you have a legitimate reason for using it
