Configure Access Director using registry entries

If a registry entry must be created or modified to correctly configure the product, you can edit the entry directly using the registry editor Regedit.exe.

Do not use a registry editor to edit the registry directly unless you have no alternative. The registry editors bypass the standard safeguards provided by administrative tools. These safeguards prevent you from entering conflicting settings or settings that are likely to degrade performance or damage your system. Editing the registry directly can have serious, unexpected consequences that can prevent the system from starting and require that you reinstall Windows. To configure or customize Windows, use the programs in Control Panel or Microsoft Management Console (MMC) whenever possible.
To create a new registry entry by using the registry editor

  1. In the Run dialog box, type regedit.exe, and then click OK.

  2. In the registry editor, navigate to the key or sub-key under which you wish to add an entry and select the name of the key or sub-key by clicking on it.

  3. On the Edit Menu, point to New and then click the data type for the entry, such as String Value, Binary Value, or DWORD Value.

  4. In the details pane, type the name of the registry entry, and then press ENTER to create the entry.

  5. To assign a value to the registry entry, right-click the entry and then click Modify. If the entry has been defined as Binary Value, click Modify Binary Data instead.

  6. In the Edit ValueType Value dialog box, type an appropriate value in the Value data text box. Type or select the value of other options, such as the base (hexadecimal or decimal) for DWORD values, and then click OK.
