Adding and Deleting Registry Values in the Registry Editor

The Registry Editor can be used to specify values for new or existing registry keys in the registry of a target machine. You can add string, binary, and DWORD values. During installation the values will be written to the registry; any existing values will be overwritten by the values that you specify.

To add a registry value

  1. Select a key node in the Registry Editor.
    Note   Values can't be added for the top-level nodes.
  2. On the Action menu, point to New, and then click String Value, Binary Value, or DWORD Value.

    A value name is added to the value pane and the default name is highlighted.

  3. Type a name for the new value.
  4. In the Properties window, select the Value property and type a value.

To remove a registry value

  • Select the value name in the value pane of the Registry Editor, and choose Delete from the Edit menu.
