Hi everyone. I am trying to set up some reg keys using active setup (I have a HKCU feature set up for a quick repair)

The problem is, I only want active setup to do it's thing if an outlook profile exists.

so do I create a wise script to check for the key, and if it does not exist, set the version number back? (so it runs again next time?)

is there a better way to do this?

clear as mud?

thanks, Mike

The application is actually Interwoven FileSite. It integrates into outlook. Problem is, it needs an outlook profile to integrate properly. So if a new user logs in, then they have to set up outlook once, then run the integration piece. We use roaming profiles here, so new users are common on our machines.

If it was me, I'd have AS run a script to do the whole thing: check the reg and set the key(s) accordingly.

Hi Mike,
you could do an AppSearch for a particular reg key in the outlook profile.
With this you could condition the components, which go tho HKCU.
And then, you could use an extra component (conditioned) with a RemoveRegistry entry to delete the AS-HKCU part,
if the the AS needs to be run again.
