That depends. If it's a vendor-supplied MSI (or one which extracts from a vendor's set-up stub), then yes, use a transform. If it's your own MSI i.e. authored by you from scratch or captured by a packaging tool, go ahead and delete it. If the latter, make sure that its component 'container' is removed also, along with the reference to that component in the FeatureComponents table.

One reason why I prefer to use a packaging tool to do this kind of thing is that the tool takes care of ALL the relevant edits so, if I delete a registry entry or file, all the associated tables are adjusted for me. It might not be as quick, but it *is* thorough.

Hi,

are you got any error?

as you want t delete a reg. key......
1. just go to registry talbe and delete that.
2. if that registry component is contain only this key then delete that component else leave it.
3. In component table check also for the Set Key Path.
4. and also check entry in to FeatureComponents talbe.
