Color Scheme Registry Key

Hello,

I have a new computer that has Windows Vista Business Edition and had Office
Standard Edition 2007 installed. I have since installed Office Small
Business Editon 2007 on it.

When I run Publisher and click on Color Scheme, I get the following message:

"The color scheme registry key is either missing or corruput. Run Setup
again to reinstall the color scheme registry."

I have since reinstalled Office as directed, but with no success. I then
uninstalled Office and reinstalled, again without success. Please help.

Thanks,
Zevon

Re: Color Scheme Registry Key

Hello Zevon, I have looked everywhere for where the Color Scheme key is located
in the registry. I can find the keys in Office 9. I assume it is because I have
several versions of Publisher installed and the color schemes don't change from
version to version. You could open the registry and do a search for colorscheme
(one word).

There are MSDN development articles that might help

Re: Color Scheme Registry Key

Mary,
Thanks for the prompt reply.
I have another computer with a similar setup and did a registry search for
"colorscheme" and found at least a dozen classes entries throughout the
registry, but more specifically, found entries in HKU and HKCU under
Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Publisher\Preferenc es and all entries appear
to be the same on the affected system and my reference system.

I believe there is something else wrong...perhaps a complete un-install of
Office and a removal of all registry entries related to Pubisher prior to
re-install would do the trick. Your thoughts? Is there a tool that would do
that for me?

Re: Color Scheme Registry Key

I don't usually recommend uninstalling, have you tried the *Office Diagnostics*
in the help menu?

Re: Color Scheme Registry Key

Mary,
I failed to mention that I did run the Office Diagnostics, and it found
nothing wrong.
I'll try the alternate method of uninstalling. Not getting a good feeling
about this...
When in Publisher, if I select Color Schemes, there is only one color scheme
listed in addition to the <Custom> option. Do you know if there is an option
I could use during reinstall to select or deselect Color Schemes to be
installed. Maybe this just isn't happening during the installation. Your
thoughts?

Re: Color Scheme Registry Key

Did you have a Publisher version before this one? Is it still on your computer?
Can you create a custom color scheme?

Look in this folder

C:\Users\<<user>>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Publis her
Are there any cuscol.scm files? If there are, either delete them or rename them.
