Cannot edit .MTA, Menta is in 'Stand Alone' mode

Issue

Getting error message in Vista that Menta is in 'stand alone' mode and cannot edit the .MTA

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • Vista
  • Menta

Cause

This happens usually when Menta has previously been installed on the system in a "stand alone" fashion and then Vista was installed at a later time.

Resolution

  1. Go to Start > Run and type "regedit" to open the Registry Editor
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > TAC > TAC Menta
  3. Double click the key named StandAlone.
  4. Change the value data to "No"
     

For a 64 bit OS, the path in the Registry Editor is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Wow6432Node>TAC Menta
