Failed to import registry file 

The specified registry file could not be imported because it contains an invalid registry root entry or an invalid registry value. Some registry files may contain syntax that is undocumented and unsupported; they can be opened in Regedit.exe but cannot be imported into a deployment project.

To correct this error

  1. Open the specified file in a text editor, such as Notepad.

  2. Change any registry root entries or values that contain invalid syntax.
