xemot,

Can you give us some details on what you need to accomplish?

If it is a matter of making a registry change on a group of machines, doing it through a login script is an efficient way to get it done.

If it is a matter of including a registry key in a package or a silent install, then we definitely need more info in order to make recommendations.

Add the .reg file to your MSI, have the MSI copy the file to (for example) c:\reg.

Create a custom action that launches a .bat file calling the .reg file with the /S switch for silent mode.

batch file:

c:\reg\entry.reg /s

when the batch file runs it will add the reg keys. There are other ways of doing this, but this is by far the easiest (but not the cleanest).

If i were you I should implement the keys in the msi package instead of having them in a reg file, cause they will still be installed on the client during an uninstallation, if not adding another custom action to run during uninstallation, so why not insert them in the msi package?

The correct syntax for the command-line is:

Regedit /i/s %regfile%

Isn't it easier to import the key in to the MSI file?

Yes and no, it depends on your experience with MSI. If you understand how to use tools for editing the MSI or creating a transform file, then it is easy. I do, I don't assume everyone else does, so when someone asks how, I was just trying to give other options.

My answer (and question) was not in response to your comment, but more to the topic starter. I assume that if anyone posts on this forum, he/she has basic knowledge concerning MSI manipulation, hence the response ..

There are the odd newbies who are just starting out, I remember when I was starting out, I found so much information and resources on this topic that it was information overload. Dumbing it down sometimes helps them take in the info better.
