I'm using Wise Installation Studio 7.0 SP 1 and....

If I import a .reg file I am met with the 'do I want to remove Advertising information' dialog. I always forget if I should answer Yes or No.

Can someone familiar with Wise IS 7 briefly explain this to me?

Thanks in advance!!

In WPS, whenever you try to import any reg file which has COM information(CLSID,Typelib, Inerface, MIME type etc..)
it always prompt you with the dialog mentioned .If you click yes, it will move the approraite entry to the related table e.g CLISD under HKLM\Software\CLISD entry will be moved to CLSID table and so on..
If you click No it will retain the data through registry only.

To add to it...

Click yes, if you are sure and you know how the COM associations work... cos Wise sometimes messes up things while adding info to the com tables(CLSID,Typelib, etc - I've experienced that) and you will have a tough time sorting it out... I would suggest going for it if you wanna get rid of the ICE 33 warnings, as leaving them in the registry table will give you tons of ICE33 warnings. Take your call

- Always note down the EXACT wording of messages/dialog texts for which you want an explanation.Wise does NOT ask you if you want to remove advertising information. It asks if you want to use the advertising tables instead of the Registry table.

- I would advise you to always answer 'Yes'. In almost 10 years, I have never experienced Wise "messing things up". It can get in a pickle with poorly-edited .REG files but, in those cases, the usual adage applies: garbage in, garbage out.

- You should also set the option in Wise to use the advertising tables for regular captures, too. Since I'm remote from my work at the moment, I can't recall exactly what the path is but it's something like 'Tools/Options', click the 'Advertising' tab, select 'Always use advertising tables'. Under that drop-down are two check-boxes, one of which is related to this. Is it "Always extract COM information on compile"? Something like that...you may want to select that, too.
