I am trying to change the Version entry in HKCU to zero so that the active setup runs every time the same user Logs in.

But its not working....Please advice

This is really not the way active setup is supposed to function. I could conceive a possible solution rewriting the version in HKLM to a higher number each time... but wouldn't you be better off using policy or a logon script?

you might want to put an entry in the HKLM or HKCU run key then that triggers an msiexec /f command for the product..

definately agree with other active setup is a poor choice to resolve this..

try put it here or similar

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

A better solution would be to use group policy to maintain the application settings. However if you must use Activesetup everytime the user logs on, instead of executing the command, write a batch file that executes the command you want, followed by another command that will delete the HKCU activesetup registry key. This will ensure that active setup will run every time a user logs on.

I'm not in front of my Windows computer right now, so I can not provide an example.

I'm curious why you need to repair the app EVERY time. That sounds like you're covering a worse problem that needs resolution.
