Hi fester,

If your installer is already an .MSI, you can create a .MST file.
In creating .MST (Transforms) you can use a freeware tools (ORKTOOLS).
Upon creating MST, you can insert this regfile on the way upon creating MST.
You can test the created .MST file if its working correctly by typing this at run command

msiexec /i "Path to MSI" TRANSFORMS"Path to MST"

/i means Install
/x means UnInstall
/f means Repair

I hope this helps.

Hi Fester,

You can insert the reg file by adding or importing it on the Add/Remove Registry entries on sequence 11/17.

If you wanted to create a transforms using ORCA, you can add the reg file on the reg table. First open the MSI with ORCA, click on transforms (New Transform), click on component table. Copy one component name and paste it on the notepad for your referrence. Now go to registry table, then right click on the righ window pane. Select Add row, then add row window will appear. Enter the value of what reg you wanted to add, on the bottom you can see the component column, use the name you copied on notepad on component table.

Reg Root.

0 = HKEY_Classes
1 = HKEY_Current_User
2 = HKEY_Local_Machine

Hope this helps,
