Registry key not found error in my logs. What is causing this and how can I fix it?



I am getting this error message in my logs, eventhough, I am still able to run my scans, I want be sure that everything that needs to be scanned is getting scanned.


Here is the error that I am getting.


[2014-10-28 13:33:03 com.fortify.sca.util.WindowsRegistry.execute() Thread-12 Master FINE]
Command: "reg" "query" "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A" "/v" "InstallationFolder"

stderr: ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.


Any help is a big help.


Thanks in advance.

Hi Ghost,


That kind of error will come up every once in awhile.  When I've asked support about it, they describe it as a benign error that can be ignored.  Hope that helps.
