"could Not Set Registry Key" Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello all. First time user here.
I don't think anyone's asked this yet, but my apologies if there's already a thread about this that I've missed.
I recently purchased a copy of this book ("PHP for the Web: Visual QuickStart Guide, 5th Edition" of course) and followed one of its recommendations: to go to www.apachefriends.org to download XAMPP.
I went to that site, followed alll the links, followed its installation wizard, but every time I've tried to install XAMPP (the Windows 7.1.7 version. My OS is Windows 7 Professional) the wizard keeps giving me this pop-up:



Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete correctly
Could not set registry key HKEY_LOCAL-MACHINE\Software\xampp Install_Dir



How can I fix this?
Or can I just ignore this?
I've asked this question in the Apache Friends Support Forum about a week ago, but no one's responded yet.
I'm hoping Mr. Ullman or someone can help me with this.
