Add Windows Registry Key
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

This action adds a new registry key and/or value to the Windows registry on the target system.


By default, this action will add the new registry key to the uninstall, and it will be removed along with the files and directories when the application is uninstalled.  This can be prevented by setting Add to Uninstall to No.
