Registry Editor

Specifies registry keys and values to be added to the registry of a target computer.

To access Registry Editor, on the View menu, point to Editor, and then click Registry when a deployment project is selected in Solution Explorer.

The Registry Editor is divided into two parts: a navigation pane on the left and a detail pane on the right. The navigation pane contains a hierarchical list of registry hives that represent the registry on a target computer (a hive is group of keys, subkeys, and values in the registry). When a registry hive is selected in the navigation pane, any registry entries that will be added for that hive are displayed in the detail pane.
