Registry Settings Management in Deployment 

The Registry Editor allows you to specify registry keys and values to be added to the registry of the target computer.

By default the Registry Editor displays a standard set of registry keys that correspond with the standard Windows registry keys: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, HKEY_USERS, and HKEY_PER_USER. For Setup projects, additional keys that match the Manufacturer property for the project are displayed under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software.

You can add your own keys under any registry key or sub-key; add string, binary, or DWORD values to any key; or import registry files.

Most items in the Registry Editor, including keys and values, can be moved between nodes by dragging with the mouse or by using the Cut and Paste commands on the Edit menu.

The following topics describe tasks that can be accomplished in the Registry Editor.
